Film masterpieces, like our heart's desire, shouldn't elude us forever; Charulata is an experience every movie-lover should share.

Ray recognizes the paradox that reformers are insulated from the people for whom they toil, but the movie is too stately and attenuated.

Possibly more relaxed and leisurely than most Satyajit Ray films, Charulata nevertheless has a graciousness and dignity which impart an added sincerity to the simple, yet thoroughly acceptable story.

Certainly one of Ray's best films, with a superb music score of his own composition.

To put it baldly, as the Ray camera could never do, the picture is an artistic masterpiece, impeccably performed, but diluted in impact and power by a stately, inchworm pace that accentuates a plot as old and familiar as the hills.
