The Satyajit Ray Collection: Volume 1 Film Poster


Triple-bill of films from one of the masters of world cinema. In 'Mahanagar' (1963), when Arati's (Madhabi Mukherjee) husband Bhambal (Anil Chatterjee) loses his job, Arati decides to get a job herself in order to support the family. However, this untraditional action throws the family into turmoil. In 'Charulata' (1964), lonely Charulata (Mukherjee) befriends Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee), the cousin of her workaholic husband, but their feelings soon develop beyond a platonic friendship. Finally, in 'Nayak' (1966), Aditi (Sharmila Tagore) is a pretty journalist who interviews the film star Arindam Mukherjee (Uttam Kumar) on a train trip to Delhi, and flashbacks are used to illustrate the main events in the actor's life. After she has completed the interview, Aditi tears up her notes and refuses to use the story that could change the public perception of the popular actor.
