Satyajit Ray is internationally acknowledged as one of the great masters of world cinema. Mahanagar (The Big City): Set in the mid' 50s, Ray's often humorous story of conflicting social values in India's lower-middle class focuses on a housewife whose growing independence alarms her traditionalist family. Charulata (The Lonely Wife): Neglected by her ambitious journalist husband, the lonely Charulata (Madhabi Mukherjee) befriends his cousin, a sensitive aspiring writer, and almost inevitably their feelings for each other begin to deepen. Nayak (The Hero): This beautifully observed character study was one of Ray's earliest original screenplays. En route to an award ceremony, a famous and egocentric Bengali movie star finds that he is compelled to re-evaluate his life after encountering a disapproving young journalist.
