Movie Info

A group of Calcutta city slickers, including the well-off Asim (Soumitra Chatterjee), the meek Sanjoy (Subhendu Chatterjee) and the brutish Hari (Samit Bhanja), head out for a weekend in the wilderness. Before long, however, the friends find themselves neglecting nature in favor of hard drinking and hitting on the nearby tribeswomen. But as the men spend more time with the local people, they begin to realize that the social standings that mean so much to them hold no importance in the wild.

Audience Reviews for Days and Nights in the Forest

  • Feb 04, 2009
    a lyrical and lovely film that certainly echoes renoir's partie de campagne. four young men leave their middle class lives to spend several days in the indian countryside and come away changed by the experience. i also saw parallels to wes anderson's darjeeling limited. i'd be willing to bet he's seen this too. very funny, maybe in part due to the incomplete subtitles on the version i saw. and is this some kind of polish poster? :/ ray deserves better <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=28hhgyb" target="_blank"><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/28hhgyb.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>

    Another great film by Ray about a group of four middle class men from Calcutta who go on holiday and meet a group of women. A classic which hasn't dated at all.

    My first Satyajit Ray movie and still my favourite of the handful of his films I've seen. I'm going to struggle to write about this one, I can tell, because I don't think I can adequately explain why I find such an apparently simple movie so uniquely profound. In terms of plot, there's nothing to it; it's just about four well-to-do, westernised friends from Calcutta, who spend a few days in the country to help one of their number, a celebrated cricketer, get over being jilted by his girlfriend. Snotty and self-important to begin with, the men are improved over the course of the film, to greater and lesser degrees, by their surroundings and experiences. The miraculous thing about Ray's direction is that, not only does he manage to turn the forest and countryside into an enchanted realm, where fundamental improvements of character seem entirely justified, even inevitable, he somehow manages to make the viewer feel changed for the better, too, by the experience of watching his film. It's one of those very rare movies that, for a short time at least, makes the real word feel like a more magical place after you've seen it. Sharmila Tagore is very memorable as the elegant, enigmatic and supremely intelligent object of one of the men's affection.
