The objective of this paper is to create a comparative study between the form of novel and film adaptation of Pinjar, by BhartiyaGyanpith Award recipient Amrita Pritam and to look towards the issues such as torments, violence, murders, rapes etc. from the position of women, who were being treated as mere objects and how these issues are portrayed in both the forms. Violence, based on gender is being practiced from an early period. This paper aims to explore the various dimensions of violence by examining the objectified female characters like Pooro and tries to deal with the questions of displacement, marginalization, dual identities and powerlessness which are being portrayed through their bodies.  Here, efforts are being made to show that when one aspect of the society is developed and the other aspect is underdeveloped, then it will appear as a loss to the entire human race.
