    “Debi” was released on 19th February, 1960. The fastidious Satyajit Ray created this film by adapting a novella of Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay. “Debi” is all about the feudal, patriarchal, superstitious society which existed in rural Bengal in the past century, & how it predated upon simple human beings. Chhabi Biswas plays the character of the rich patriarch who professes that he has foreseen his daughter-in-law (Sharmila Tagore) to be a goddess (DEBI) in his dreams & forcefully transforms the simple tepid girl into a mechanical, religious deity. The film beautifully forays into the pains & griefs which the girl bears & ultimately the aftermath of all these sufferings. The performances of Chhabi Biswas & Karuna Banerjee are stupendous. Soumitra Chattopadhyay as the helpless spouse of Sharmila is a class act. Anil Chatterjee & Sharmila as the victim squeeze despair & emotions from the psychic of the viewer. Screenplay by Ray, camera work by Subrata Mitra, art direction by Bansi Chandragupta & editing by Dulal Dutta excel within innumerable material constraints. Music by Ali Akbar Khan is an added attraction for filmy buffs. The film was distributed by Janata Pictures & Theatres Ltd. “Debi” continues to remain as a thrashing upon every fraud & capitalist religious guru who torture & fragment humanity upon flummerous anti-human thesis. Worth a watch!
