The lonely wife of a newspaper editor falls in love with her visiting cousin-in-law, who shares her love for literature.

India | 117 minutes | NR | Blu-Ray | Dir. Satyajit Ray

Charu lives a lonely and idle life in 1870s India. Although her husband Bhupati devotes more time to his newspaper than to their marriage, he sees her loneliness and asks his brother-in-law, Umapada to keep her company. At the same time Bhupati's own brother, Amal, a would-be writer comes home finishing his college education. However, after several months, Charu and Amal's feelings for each other move beyond literary friendship. (IMDB) 

“For me, Ray was one of the ideal role models for the kind of director I would like to be.” –Wes Anderson
