Airing every Sunday at 3 pm on Zee Studio, the festival will showcase some of Ray’s finest works including Devi, Parash Pathar, Samapti, Simabaddha, Postmaster and Joi Baba Felunath with English subtitles to encourage appreciation by a wider audience.
Speaking about Zee Studio’s tribute to Ray, Neil Chakravarti, Business Head, Zee Studio, said “Satyajit Ray’s films are an experience on celluloid that a genuine lover of Cinema cannot afford to miss. We are certain that the Ray Festival will greatly appeal to the mature viewer with a taste for meaningful cinema”
While Apur Sansar starring Sharmila Tagore and Soumitra Chatterjee is the final part of the famous Apu Trilogy, Parash Pathar takes you on a trip of fantasy as an elderly bank clerk finds a mysterious stone that transforms any piece of metal to gold. Samapti traces the life of Amulya who marries a tomboyish teenager much against the wishes of his mother. Simabaddha, the powerful drama follows a young executive’s climb up the corporate ladder and his gradual immersion into corruption seen through the eyes of his sister-in-law. While Devi is a fascinating account of how an aged landowner has a revelation that his daughter-in-law is the Goddess Kali incarnate, Post Master beautifully explores the nuances of a complex relationship between a young man and his maid. Joi Baba Felunath starring Utpal Dutt and Soumitra Chatterjee is the story of a detective who begins to investigate the theft of a priceless deity of Lord Ganesha.
