This dark melodrama about a refugee family's struggles for survival on the outskirts of Calcutta is a true classic of Indian film. It is also considered one of the finest films by Ritwik Ghatak, a director who, though not well known outside of India, is viewed by many critics as second only to Satyajit Ray in his importance to the national cinema. "...a searing piece of work, resonant and beautifully structured" (
). In Bengali with English subtitles.
Ritwik Ghatak---India---1960---122 mins.
