Let me start by saying that this is a must read for those who consider themselves as students of celluloid. The book is a collection of essays written by Ray for various national and international publications. The accounts Ray presents to us shows the versatile genius he was. How was story chosen?, An actor identified? , a scene envisioned? , a location decided?, How was the editing done? All these with the unique challenges of making unconventional, cost effective films in India which are world class. Ray will let you in for a snapshot of his astute pysche, leave you with a great understanding of the medium and an even greater admiration for his masterpieces. --Ankur Datta Feb 20, 2012
The delivery by Flipkart was prompt. I wanted to review this product after finishing the book. The book gives us a glimpse, not only of Ray's film making style but also of his view of Indian, Hollywood, European and Japanese films of the the classic era. The articles in this book have been written by a person having a highly analytical film making mind with a movie loving heart. Read this for Ray's love of movies alone. --Abhishek Mukherjee Sep 10, 2014
