Satyajit Ray’s “Charulata” is rated as one of the best films in the legacy of Indian film history. Be it editing, screenplay, music, camera or art work, “Charulata” is pure vintage stuff. “Charulata” is rated as Ray’s best creation by the cinema-wallahs. The film was an adaption of Rabindranath Tagore’s “Nashtanir”. The tale portrays the triangular psychological undercurrent between a couple, Bhupathi (Sailen Mukherjee) & Charulata (Madhabi) & “young Bengal” Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee). The way Ray emphasized the deep & complex characters of the leads, proves his unlimited prowess in the medium. The art work by Bansi Chandragupta is phenomenal. Editing is perpetual & blended with precision. Ray’s screenplay is just brilliant & so is his background score. The Rabindra sangeet “Ami Chini Go Chini Tomare…” (sung by Kishore Kumar) has been displayed beautifully. Technically “Charulata” is close to perfect. Regarding the philosophy & the intricacies, the film is required to be seen to be evaluated. “Charulata” may be easily testified as the ultimate postmortem of human psychology. Soumitra, Sailen Mukherjee & Madhabi Mukherjee produce lifetime performances. “Charulata” is a film which any individual must experience before his demise.
