Bimal Roy: The Man Who Spoke in Pictures

 
Rinki Roy Bhattacharya (Editor)
Synopsis "Udayer Pathe, Bimal Roy's first film, revolutionized Indian cinema. Hailed as a pioneer by Satyajit Ray, he was perhaps the first to bring shades of grey to the black and white screen. Roy's spare storytelling and nuanced understanding of the human condition are reflected in classics like Devdas, Sujata and Madhumati. His ability to illuminate ordinary characters, like Shambhu in Do Bigha Zamin and Kalyani in Bandini, is attested to by their being a part of popular memory even to this day.

The Man Who Spoke in Pictures, is not just a eulogy to this great director, but also an insight into Roy, the man, the director and his art. The auteur's little-known Bengal phase is chronicled by Mahasweta Devi and Amit Chaudhuri, as well as Tapan Sinha, Amit Bose and other greats of cinema who trace his journey from cinematographer to director. His Bombay years are recorded through a collection of analyses and anecdotes from leading literary and cinematic luminaries, including Nayantara Sahgal, Gulzar, Naseeruddin Shah and Khalid Mohamed. The final section examines Roy from the outsider's perspective, with articles by Meghnad Desai, Rachel Dwyer and Paula H. Mayhew.

A must-have for any serious film buff, this centenary tribute is a fitting homage to the man who changed the way we saw films."
