Product description

Counted among the most revered and timeless classics of Indian Cinema, Pather Panchali is a 1955 Bengali film directed by the celluloid stalwart, Satyajit Ray. Produced by the Government of West Bengal, this feature-film was the first installment of the famous Apu Trilogy which was regarded widely as a masterpiece of Ray. It was the screen adaptation of the eponymous Bengali novel by novelist Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay. Pather Panchali pioneered the Parallel Cinema Movement on Indian screen, espousing social realism and deglamorising authenticity. Starring Kanu Banerjee, Karuna Banerjee, Subir Bannerjee, Uma Dasgupta and Chunibala Devi, the film won overwhelming critical appreciation from far and wide. Pather Panchali lays claim to a legacy that still remains unparalleled in the history of Indian Cinema. Pather Panchali was awarded the 3rd National Award for Best feature Film and it featured on the list of Rolling Stones' 100 Maverick Movies in the Last 100 Years.

The plot portrays the lives of a poor Brahmin family in rural Bengal, struggling to make both ends meet and yet, reveling in the little delights of life. Harihar (Kanu Banerjee) plays the role of the father, who frequently travels to the other village barely earning a square meal for his family. Amidst this abject poverty and destitution, his wife Sarbajaya ( Karuna Banerjee) raises two children, Apu and Durga and the film revolves around their vibrant childhood despite all handicaps. The role of the elderly cousin, Indir Thakurun (Chunibala Devi) enhances the rustic charm of the film. This film captures the simple joys of juvenile life set against the captivating village landscape.

The film is distinguished by certain milestone frames, which perched on the threshold of India's independence marked the arrival of a new era. The two children running behind the candy-seller or the awestruck audience to a railway engine passing by, became significant stills demonstrating the lives of the deprived and the hapless. Tragedy, losses and yet resilience with aspirations for a better tomorrow, was indeed the song of the road for every poor in post-independence Bengal and Pather Panchali captured it unrivalled finesse.

Pather Panchali (2010) was released in DVD format as a single disc in Bengali. The music of this Satyajit Ray film was composed by the sitar maestro, Pandit Ravi Shankar. The film is succeeded by Aparajito and Apur Sansar to complete the trilogy.
