Satyajit Ray is the tallest Indian figure in world cinema. Retrospectives across the globe, perhaps even more than at home, have kept his legacy alive. But how do we understand his cinema in the context of a vastly different world? What keeps great cinema from becoming dated? What are the particularities of Ray's movies that cause them to endure?Bhaskar Chattopadhyay's literary engagement with Ray's cinema spans years. In this book, he revisits each one of Satyajit Ray's thirty-nine feature films, shorts and documentaries to investigate their cinematic and social context.
