The long awaited news of Fanny ceases to exist in the funeral scene of Fanny herself. It is only when Ferdie requests to be shown the corpse of Fanny which kills all his emotions for her only to make him further aghast at the sight of Fanny moment whom he remembers only as a beautiful young girl. The very feeling of excitement is rather marred by the very sight of elderly Fanny, as a mother to a girl now.
Another outstanding example of diminishing value for any object is rightly portrayed in the portrait that Pankaj Kapur playing the role of a painter (Don Pedro) makes of Dimple Kapadia, playing the role of a widow, Rosie. Don Pedro is throughout shown as a desperate man fancying the widows physiognomy, only to put it on his canvas. His painting draws one to another hidden message in the movie when he forcefully draws her nearly naked, and once his art is accomplished, he disposes off the woman like a piece of garbage. The scene is beautifully portrayed when Rosie after realizing that she has been misused, gives vent to her troubled emotions aloud. This throws light on the vanity of the man today who treats every other human just a piece of object fulfilling his selfish purposes.
