12. Charulata (1964)
Satyajit Ray and his women never cease to amaze me. They are intelligent, steadfast, strong, gentle and complicated. In other words, rather than being glamorous showpieces, they are humans. Charulata(Madhabi Mukherjee) is the sharp and beautiful wife of Bhupati (Shailen Mukherjee), an upper-class newspaper publisher ad a political enthusiast, who loves his wife but is too busy to give her time. Things change when Bhupati’s cousin Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee) visits them. Set in the period of Bengali Renaissance, this adaptation of Tagore’s ‘Nastanirh’, this movie taps into the emotions of loneliness, desire, love and guilt. The screenplay is elaborate, with cultural and literary allusion, and makes brilliant use of deep focus in a Victorian-style set.
