This comprehensive study of Satyajit Ray provides a commentary on the film-maker's work over an extra-ordinarily creative career spanning four decades.

Placing Ray ion his social and cultural context, it discusses each of his films from Pather Panchali to Agantuk in critical detail and with an authority born of the author's long familiarity with Ray's work. The book devotes special attention to the literary sources of the films - as well as Ray's departures from literary originals - and the many influences, Eastern and Western, that shaped Ray's mind and art. Written in a highly readable style and illustrated with almost a hundred stills from the films, this book would be welcomed by all readers interested in the films of Satyajit Ray, and Indian cinema in general.
