If, at some point in the future, Pather Panchali cannot fulfil its dutiesas Satyajit Ray's masterpiece, Mahanagar can step up and fill in theposition. Or perhaps the two films can co-rule, as they compliment eachother so nicely. Pather Panchali is the simple, straightforwardmasterpieceand Mahanagar ...
Mahangar captures the middle class culture of post-independenceCalcutta effectively. The movie shows the emotional crisis of a familycaught between family tradition and increasing expenses. Thehusband-wife relationship starts unraveling under the stress of brandnew corporate identity and financial c...
I found the movie exhilarating. This a movie where a Bengalihousewife's actual stand in the eyes of those near to her comes tolife. The house wife Aarati takes up the load of a job only to care forher family. While other family members gradually accept her new role,mostly because of the dire need of...
I loved this film. Madhabi Mukherjee is gorgeous and so engaging, withthe virtuosic ability to represent the stresses of a changing Calcuttathrough a simple glance. Mahanagar is a fascinating dramatic case studyof the collision of modernism and traditionalism that produced asociocultural duality/dic...
Like all other Satyajeet Ray movies, this one too is wonderful. As thename signifies, Mahanagar or 'The Metropolis' is about Kolkata of the1960s. The position of women, the biased views of the older generation,helpless conditions of banks and offices find a perfect blend in themovie. Bhombal support...
I haven't watched much of Satyajit Ray's films, but now I strongly havean urge to watch more and more.. My first Ray film was Charulata, whichwas once screened in our college film club. It too had MadhabiMukherjee playing the title character, 'The lonely wife'.After having finished watching Mahanaga...
I watched the "Sony Classics" version of this movie (restored byMerchant-Ivory) yesterday, 03/31/02, here in DC as part of the completeSatyajit Ray retrospective organized by the Smithsonian Museum wherethe series is attracting a full house. I had watched this movie oncebefore and liked it a lot, bu...
How does Satyajit Ray manage to evoke such a set of complex emotionswith such simplicity? Madhabi Mukherjee delivers a amazingly nuanced,sensitive performance in this tale of personal empowerment. In an oddway, the story of personal triumph reminds me a bit of American filmsin the 1930s, when the he...
Before I discuss the merits of this film, I must make a comment aboutthe captioning on the English language version DVD. It's pretty bad.Occasionally conversations are entirely omitted from the captions.Other times, the grammar is atrocious. And, some of the Englishlanguage conversation (in India, i...
The struggle between traditional and modern values in Indian life isthe centerpiece of The Big City (Mahanagar), a charming and totallyengaging film by the great Indian director Satyajit Ray. Unlike Ray'searlier works which were centered either on the very poor or the veryaffluent, The Big City deal...
Ray is one of my all-time favorite directors, and this is one of hisbest. MAHANAGAR is instantly notable for the beautiful cinematographyand for remarkable performances from all - from start to finish thefilm has a flowing, hypnotic gracefulness which compliments the storyof a woman overcoming her (...
Mahanagar is a masterpiece of Satyajit Ray. It shows how good a movie canbeand how great he is. I feel proud of being bengali as I can understandthismovie and feel sorry for those who will never be able to taste thisexcellent work of Satyajit Ray.It shows how a woman or only a woman can stand agains...
is full of such seemingly small moments, that somehow add up to anavalanche of emotion, and cinematic thrill. His films appear simpleenough to be seen as descriptions of everyday life, but when one isswept into them they suddenly reveal themselves as grand, painterlyvistas of the whole cosmos. Funny...
If you ask what is the basic difference between Ray movie and any othergood movie, you would get various answers. A movie critic might vouchfor 'subtlety', a photographer might be awed with the frames, amusician would go with the background score, a storyteller might fallin love with the characters ...
Have u heard the Tracy Chapman song "Subcity" ?"Thank You Mr President for Disregarding me!"-Mahanagar (The Big City) carries the same vein of facelessstruggle,only with infinitely more subtle nuances. The revolts ofMadhobi against the trying times both at home and professionally,forcedjob seeking,u...
A woman takes a job to support her family much to the disgrace of herunemployed husband and invalid father-in-law. Only Satyajit Ray could havemade a social comment on the changing face of India interesting withtouching performances by all....
