- LOVED it. This is the first film I've seen by master filmmaker Satyajit Ray and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful story, and wonderful technique from Ray as a director. The film looked stunning and the performances were fantastic. This movie is a MUST for any cinema lover!
Taking place in late 19th century Bengal, a newspaper owner is more into his work making his paper a voice of the people, more than the affection of his dear wife. The wife becomes quite close to the husband's brother, who is into writing and poetry, which he recommends her to start writing. But when her writing gets published, well, you can probably imagine what happens here.
