The music room by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

60 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With The Music Room (Jalsaghar), Satyajit Ray brilliantly evokes the crumbling opulence of the world of a fallen aristocrat (the beloved actor Chhabi Biswas) desperately clinging to a fading way of life. His greatest joy is the music room in which he has hosted lavish concerts over the years-now a shadow of its former vivid self. An incandescent depiction of the clash between tradition and modernity, and a showcase for some of India's most popular musicians of the day, The Music Room is a defining work by the great Bengali filmmaker"--Container

Ghare-bāire by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

37 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a romantic-triangle tale and a philosophical take on violence in times of revolution, The Home and the World, set in early twentieth-century Bengal, concerns an aristocratic but progressive man who, in insisting on broadening his more traditional wife's political horizons, drives her into the arms of his radical school chum. Satyajit Ray had wanted to adapt Rabindranath Tagore's classic novel to the screen for decades. When he finally did in 1984, he fashioned a personal, exquisite film that stands as a testament to his lifelong love for the great writer.

Mahanagar = The big city by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

39 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in mid-1950s Calcutta and directed by Satyajit Ray, this story follows the personal triumphs and frustrations of Arati, who decides, despite the initial protests of her bank-clerk husband, to take a job to help support their family. With remarkable sensitivity and attention to the details of everyday working-class life, Ray gradually builds a powerful human drama that is at once a hopeful morality tale and a commentary on the identity of the contemporary Indian woman
Devi by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

49 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Goddess (originally titled 'Devi'), Doyamoyee is left alone with her husband's ageing father-in-law, a devoted follower of the goddess Kali. One evening, the aging widower she cares for has a dream that she is an avatar of Kali, and must be worshipped. Word spreads, and others come to believe that she is an incarnation of the deity. Hearing this alarming news, her husband, Umprasad, returns only to find Doyamoyee herself beginning to believe that she is an avatar; a belief which soon turns to tragedy
Shakespeare Wallah by James Ivory( Visual )

19 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A troupe of English and Indian Shakespearean actors tour India giving performances whenever they can secure engagements. A young Indian, Sanju, forms a relationship with Lizzie, the daughter of the English founders of the troupe. That the actors in the film are real Shakespearean actors from a real troupe adds a touch of irony to the tragi-comic nostalgia for crumbling Imperial culture. Ivory, in his second film, has clearly been influenced by Satyajit Ray who composed the music. DVD

42 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Satyajit Ray's absorbing contemporary adaptation of a play by Henrik Ibsen, a good-hearted doctor discovers that the serious illness befalling the citizens of his small Bengali town may be due to a contamination of the holy water at the local temple. His findings are met not with public gratitude but with rancor, as well as opposition from local authorities, who are afraid the news will keep visitors away. Stately in style but with a fiery debate at its heart, An Enemy of the People gets at the tension between religion and science in everyday Indian life

Aśani-saṃketa = Distant thunder by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

26 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focal characters of Ray's film, set in a Bengali village in 1943, are Ganga, a young and somewhat pompous Brahmin, and his wife Ananga. Having just settled in the village, Ganga is comically self-conscious of his roles as priest, teacher, doctor, and wise man conferred upon him by caste. When Ananga asks him if he really can ward off a cholera outbreak through spells for which neighboring hamlets will pay handsomely, he replies that in addition to spells, he will also pass on the practical information from his hygiene encylopedia. Village tranquility is ruptured, however, as the reverberations of World War II intrude. As the war-induced rice shortage becomes acute, life-long trusts are betrayed and civil order disintegrates. The scramble to survive humiliates some of Ray's characters but enobles others, including Ganga who undergoes a radical and moving political conversion. The village becomes a microcosm for the wider sufferings of India, giving weight to the statistic given at the end that over 5 million people died at the time. (Does not circulate)
