As part of its constant endeavour of bringing rich, stimulating cinema to its discerning audience, Zee Studio proudly announces ‘Saluting Satyajit Ray, a Satyajit Ray Film Festival, commencing on Sunday, 2nd December,3 pm with Apur Sansar, the legendary filmmaker’s timeless classic.

Speaking about Zee Studio’s tribute to Ray, Neil Chakravarti, Business Head, Zee Studio, saidSatyajit 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

A RAY of 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.
Tune into Zee Studio, Every Sunday 3:00pm Starting the Sunday, 2nd December.
