Trikal (also, Trikal Present, Past, Future) is a 1985 Hindi film directed by Shyam Benegal. The film is predominantly set in the pre-liberation Goa of the early 1960s and gives a great insight into the society of those days.

Trikal revolves around a Goan Christian family called "Souza Soares", set in the turbulent 1960s when the Portuguese rule in Goa is taking its last breaths. Sometime in the 1980s, Ruiz Pariera (Shah) returns to Souza Soares after a long stint abroad, somewhat taken aback at the changes that has taken place in the Goa of his youth. The sight of now derelict mansion fills him with a sense of nostalgia and memories come flooding in, triggering a narrative which takes the film forward. The grand old man of Souza Soares, Ernesto is on his funeral bed, while his daughter Sylvia (Kanwal) and her clumsy husband Lucio (Raina) are more disturbed than sad with the fact that the matriarch Donna Maria (Naidu) is yet to come to terms with the death of her husband and prefers listening to Portuguese songs at full volume instead of being in mourning, pretending he is still alive.

Sridevi, who ruled the silver screen in the 1980s,

Sridevi, whose irresistible cocktail of indigenous oomph and gift for connecting with the audience filled up cavernous single-screens and took her to the pinnacle of popularity in the Hindi, Telugu and Tamil film industries, died in Dubai on Saturday night. She was 54, reports said. Pure gold at the box office, Sridevi could also turn out sensitive performances – Moondrum Pirai (Sadma in Hindi), Lamhe and, more lately, English Vinglish to name just three – with equal felicity and feel.
