Ray’s wonderful ‘Apu Trilogy’ concludes with this heartbreakingly beautiful epic of unexpected love, grief and the quest for belonging in the disconnected modern world.
Apu (Sumitra Chatterjee) has finished university. Living in a humble apartment in Kolkata, struggling to find a job and months behind on rent, he still aspires to make it as a writer. When he is invited to a wedding in a rural village with his best friend Pulu (Swapan Mukherjee), a twist of fate finds Apu in a hastily arranged marriage with a young woman, Aparna (a radiant Sharmila Tagore). Despite the improbable pairing, and Apu’s shame over his lack of income, genuine affection and devotion soon grows between the newlyweds. Chatterjee is marvellous as Apu, who retains his boyish innocence and curiosity about the world even as he grapples painfully with adult responsibility, love and loss.
The beginning of one of the greatest bodies of work in the history of cinema.
Martin Scorsese
The great, sad, gentle sweep of The Apu Trilogy remains in the mind of the moviegoer as a promise of what film can be.
Roger Ebert
