Apu takes his exquisite bride, Aparna, back to Calcutta. But Aparna dies while giving birth, Apu leaves Calcutta, crazy with grief, and his son Kajal is left abandoned with his wife's parents. Only after a long period of total indifference to worldly responsibilities, does Apu become capable of returning to the world.". --IMDB

The music room by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

23 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 562 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
Shatranj ke khilari Chess players by Satyajit Ray( Visual )

The kingdom of Oudh has a gently decadent Nawab (king), who is busy being a poet, composer, singer, dancer, and choreographer, but not a ruler. Mirza and Mir are old friends, living in the capital city off ancestral wealth and taxes on their lands. As the king is obsessed with his artistic endeavors, the friends are obsessed with shatranj (chess). In 1856, the East India Company sends General Outram, the British Resident of Lucknow, to take over the kingdom, under the charge of misrule. The king dithers, the friends play chess. British troops march into the city; the king surrenders without a fight, and the friends remove to a distant village so they can play in peace

Shakespeare Wallah by James Ivory( Visual )

19 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 349 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. Note that the soundtrack is only fair but the English dialogue is audible
