Restored trilogy has Ray’s fans humming the ‘Song of the Little Road’ again

Satyajit Ray’s debut film “Pather Panchali” (Song of the Little Road) put Indian cinema into the eyes of the world, albeit belatedly, despite its relatively long history in filmmaking. 

The country produced its first motion picture in 1913 – barely a few years after Hollywood rolled out its maiden production in 1908. It then churned out its first talkie in 1931 and scooped its first international honor in 1934 at the Venice Film Festival, which should have been a crowning moment but was lost in the din of the freedom movement.

It was not until the release of “Pather Panchali” in 1955 in free India, followed by “Aparajito” (The Unvanquished) in 1956 and “Apur Sansar” (The World of Apu) in 1959, which together make up The Apu Trilogy, that cinema buffs and art-house critics sat up and took notice.
