Birth Centenary of Bimal Roy ; A Tribute to The Legend.
Description: July 12 happens to occasion centennial birth anniversary of the legendary film maker Bimal Roy. Keeping apart his brilliance in making films, we can recall him in view of at least one underlining aspect that he collected his components from Bengali literature and put them into executions in Hindi films in order to translate the regional wealth into national asset."Devdas" and "Parineeta"(Sarat Chandra Chattopadhya),"Sujata"(Subodh Ghosh),"Kabuliwalla" and "Nauka dubi"(Rabindranath Tagore),"Madhumati"(scripted by Ritwik Kumar Ghatak)--are but a few examples suggesting how this great director augmented the status of Indian Cinema by integrating it with human values compiled from the Bengali literature. There may be or must be the remakes of "Kabuliwala""Parineeta""Devdas""Bandini"--but the architect of trend-setting ought to be held uppermost Above all,from his "Do Bigha Zameen" the Nation has reaped the golden harvest like Salil Chowdhury, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Manna Dey.
