Two Daughters, a two-part film based on short stories by Rabindranath Tagore, is so filled with the basic stuff of humanity that with minor changes of script it could have been made in rural Louisiana.

The script, the direction and the music, all created by Mr. Ray, make a blend of poetic creation that is almost majestic.

Each exemplifies, in its modest way, the quiet wisdom and the subtle craftsmanship of [Ray's] films.

Satyajit Ray's 1961 film displays his customary limpid realism and penetrating sense of character.

Gracefully shot, it's an amusing film that's imbued with Ray's generous humanity.

[Ray] delivers two beautifully textured tales of a young woman's discovery of love and affection, capturing the transition between childhood and adulthood.

These are delicate stories, beguilingly educative about the lives of others.

Audience Reviews for Teen Kanya (Two Daughters) (Three Daughters)

Teen Kanya originally consists of three stories. This version I am viewing contains two of the stories (due to subtitles not being finished and to budget constraints).
The first story is "Postmaster" and tells the story of a young man coming to work as a postmaster in an isolated village. The only companion he has is the small girl who has been ordered to work for him and do as he says, yet instead they form a friendship and in return he teaches her to read and write. However after a case of malaria he leaves the village leaving the girl heartbroken.
The second tale is "Samapti" and is defiantly the better of the two. Again this is about a young man, but this time the man is coming home after his exams to a mother who is desperate for him to marry. Not taking to the suitor lined up for him he marries the local tomboy but it truns out that marraige is not what she wanted. The second story has some very funny moments, even slapstick at times. It succesfully blends comedy and drama.
Overall a decent film from Ray.
