Pather Panchali

Satyajit Ray

This debut film of Satyajit Ray was revolutionary. With Pather Panchali ((1956)), Ray not only showcased Indian films to the world but also set the benchmark in the country for art films. The neo- realistic approach, the character-study based on the book, has an astounding effect. The poignant story which revolves around the poverty-struck Bengali family is more than just a story of survival; it is a classic that initiated a new wave in Indian cinema.
