Movie Info

Famed Indian film director Satyajit Ray made a number of films which addressed issues of social and economic inequality: Simbaddha is one of these. Nowhere is the gulf between rich and poor more poignantly on view than in Calcutta, the setting for this film. Chatterji is an ambitious and self-made young man. This movie tells the story of his rise to the directorship of the company he works for. His interactions with his nouveau riche peers are contrasted with the unnoticed struggles of the poor around them. One of the many ironies of the film is the way the nouveau riche class in Indian society has internalized snobberies inherited from the much-despised British. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Seemabaddha, (Company Limited)

½

The story of a man who is thoroughly modernized and Westernized. Even the movie's style is modern, with its intro that feels like an industrial film, the commercial that suddenly appears in color, and a European flavor to the camerawork. It doesn't have the melodramatic heft of Ray's more celebrated films, but the deft handling of the subject matter is very effective. The visiting sister-in-law as the film's quiet conscience is a nice device. The acting and cinematography are nearly flawless.

Another great film by Ray. The second film of the Calcutta trilogy.
