chidananda dasgupta #10

‘this film won’t work!’ _ Chidananda Dasgupta talks about the making of Pather Panchali, and remembers the day the film was released: ‘ We were all tense with expectation, in the Coffee House Satyajit Ray was standing like a piece of wood…The first week, there were hardly a quarter of the seats filled, the second week was a little better, the third week the place was full, and the fourth week people were begging for tickets…It was a tremendous success on its own in Calcutta, without any help, without any certificate from abroad’ ( recorded in Santiniketan in 1999 )

this short film is branch#10 of a big tree entitled ‘memories of ray’
