Ray's relaxed, open style had a tremendous influence on the film world of 1956, but time has absorbed some of its originality.
It doesn't have quite the tension or quite the variety of mood but it has a special brooding quality and a more explicit conflict between East and West.
It's a masterpiece for which terms like 'simplicity' and 'profundity' seem inadequate.
It is done with such rare feeling and skill at pictorial imagery, and with such sympathetic understanding of Indian character on the part of Mr. Ray, that it develops a sort of hypnotism for the serene and tolerant viewer.
Standing above fashion, it creates a world so convincing that it becomes, for a time, another life we might have lived.
There's pleasure in witnessing Apu's thrill of knowledge, but sadness when his ambitions create an inevitable break with his mother.
... Ray introduces us to the bustle of city life (where poverty is just as prevalent but has a different face).
...Aparajito...drew criticism for its refusal to create an idealized mother-son relationship.
...eloquently dramatizes oppositions: tradition versus invention; religion versus science; adolescence versus adulthood.
Humanist film-making at its best.
The second panel in Ray's masterpiece, Thr Apu Trilogy, is less dramatic than the first or last, but it's just as insightful and emotionally touching.
A thoughtful, colorful, and poetic story of life in India.
not to take anything away from it but i liked the first part better. definitely being drawn into the life of this family
