To be precise we may consider this movie as a two phase love story. The destiny is some time very cruel to us.Some time the happiness of life is driven out by Destiny and some times it’s driven in by destiny. We feel it so cruel in the matter of married couples or love birds. We have heard many stories like lossing the bellowed ones in the mishaps.If both are gone at the same instance it would be much fair. But in the occasions in which one is gone leaving the other behind is too painful. In this so called new generations, the love is mean to be instant make out and instant break out. But there are some exceptions too. Which are too much rare. In the movie Palangal (The tracks) there is a couple, Usha & Ravi. Ravi is working in Indian railways. Usha is in a spinning mill. Both were in tough romance. Her sister is Usha, Usha’s sister Vasumenon is working as engine driver in railway. In olden times as there was steam engine driven trains. So the coal was the fuel.

He had relation with so many women, but kept secret. Usha’s parents were lost long ago.
