A well-off family is paid an unexpected, and rather unwanted, visit by a man claiming to be the woman's long-lost uncle. The initial suspicion with which they greet the man slowly dissolves... See full summary »

Being a great fan of Satyajeet, i must admire the fact that he is true craftsmen again while watching this one. The visual sense, musical score, dressing and above all words to make dialogs are almost perfect. One can not think of better things to keep the balance. Specially the image/shadow style as shown in other film (Pather Panchali) is beautiful.
I think above all it is the script/story which catches you from the start. Apu is carefree and suddenly he finds him in the world where he has to care not only for himself but his wife and the form they are in. It is stunning to see the transformation in a manner that one can't notice.
A must see...
