"Cinema’s characteristic forte is its ability to capture and communicate the intimacies of the human mind" - Satyajit Ray, #bornonthisday in 1921⠀

Wishing #ShabanaAzmi many happy returns of the day who turned 67 today.

One of the leading lights of the now-largely-defunct Indian New Wave, Shabana Azmi was one of the main female actors who dominated the films of the so-called "Parallel Cinema" in India in the 1970s and 1980s. Born to noted Urdu progressive poet and lyricist Kaifi Azmi and theatre actress Shaukat Azmi, Shabana has acted in films by virtually all of India's most famous art-house directors including #ShyamBenegal, #SatyajitRay, #MrinalSen, #AparnaSen and others, as well as in commercial and middle-of-the-road Hindi films, where she has essayed several strong female characters (e.g., in Mrityudand: The Death Sentence (1997) and Godmother (1999)). Shabana Azmi was paired opposite #RajeshKhanna in 7 successful films.She is noted for her naturalness and intensity on-screen, matched by her fierce advocacy of the rights of women, minorities and slum-dwellers off-screen, both through activism and in her role as a Member of Parliament, where her consistent stand in defense of liberal values and the freedom of expression is noteworthy. She has also acted on stage to considerable acclaim, most notably in #TumhariAmrita with #FarooqSheikh. She is married to noted scriptwriter and lyricist #JavedAkhtar.

An extraordinary making of an ordinary tale #sohoj_pather_goppo “If the theme is simple, you can include a hundred details that create the illusion of actuality better.”--- Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray has to be India's best-known director, a name synonymous with Indian art cinema. He came from an illustrious artistic family. His father was a popular satirist and author of limericks. Satyajit Ray studied at Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's art institution before embarking on an early advertising career. By the early 50s, he had become a noted illustrator. At the same time, he was avidly watching American, European and Soviet films. He also met up with Jean Renoir several times during the shooting of 'The River' (1951) in Bengal. These formative years would stand him in good stead when he eventually got into filmmaking. But primarily, Ray has said that watching 'Bicycle Thieves' was what truly compelled him to get into films.
His 'Apu' trilogy was a resounding success and put Indian cinema on the world map. The first of the trilogy, 'Pather Panchali' won two awards at the Cannes Film Festival.
You will find a lot of his films are set in the past - the late nineteenth to early twentieth century, his best known being 'Charulata' (Rabindranath Tagore's novella was taken as it's source material). But my favourite and I think one that tends to be overlooked when compared to the aforementioned titles is 'Jalshagar' (The Music Room). Steeped in realism and high melodrama, the painfully reconstructed sets capture the rhythms of past Bengal with a melancholic gracefulness that takes your breath away. It depicts the destruction of an aristocratic family due to it's music-obsessed patriarch. He holds lavishly decadent concerts, and these are the most hauntingly beautiful scenes, whilst his mansion and life crumbles around him. No expense was spared on authenticity, Ray hired international classical musicians and dancers for his masterpiece. A humanist portrayal of a bygone era, a stark contrast to the heady escapism of mainstream Bollywood.

And today I read my first FELUDA adventure. With Durga Pujo just around the corner, delving into the world of Feluda, Topshe and Jatayu seemed like the apt thing to do.
May the plot thicken and may this new but deliciously old world ensnare me as it has so many others.

Mahalaya marks the first day of Devi-paksha, the day Goddess Durga starts her journey to earth (her paternal home).
For Bangali s all around the world it is a time for immense nostalgia...to go back to their childhood...to the fields filled with kaansh phool much like the iconic scene from #satyajitray 's Oscar winning movie Pather Panchali written by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay.
Let the celebrations begin.

Somehow I feel that an ordinary person, the man in the street if you think, is a more challenging subject for exploration than people in the heroic mold. It is the half shades, the hardly audible notes that I want to capture and explore.

And there is a subtle difference.
The difference between buying things for yourself and gifting yourself ! :) #instapic #instadaily #bookgasm #satyajitray #willdurant
