Life Goes On is the debut feature film of Sangeeta Datta, produced by her production company Stormglass Productions. The film explores the relations between a grief stricken father and his three daughters. With his wife, Manju’s (Sharmila Tagore) sudden death, Sanjay (Girish Karnad) confronts his daughters at close proximity. The drama unfolds over six days from the day when Manju dies to the day of the funeral. Haunted by memories, Sanjay is forced to face his unspoken prejudice about Muslims, stemming from his childhood trauma over the partition of India. At the funeral he has come to terms with himself and also with the new world that his daughters belong to.
