Abstract:

Based on the novel by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhay, Satyajit Ray's classic film, Song of the Road, walks the same path as Bandopadhay's novel, except that Ray made three films (the Apu Trilogy), from only two books by Bandopadhay, whose second novel ends much further in time than the final third film by Ray. A boy named Apu is born to a poor Brahmin family in a Bengal village. The father is a poet and priest who cannot afford to feed his family. Their six-year-old daughter, Durga, is always stealing mangoes from the neighbours. Soon she is accused of stealing a neighbour's necklace. The bad news doesn't stop as the father has to leave home to get a job but by the time he returns, Durga catches a fever and dies. The family then decides to move to Benares for a new life with Apu. As Ray said: "About 1946 or '47, I felt I had to make a film (on Apu). Before that I had illustrated an edition of Pather Panchali, and the book had attracted me as a possible film source. Then about '47, I started the Calcutta Film Society, and in '48, I developed a new hobby, of writing scenarios of films, based on books already acquired for filming ..." ... in 1950, I was sent to England and I was able to see 100 or so films. The first was Bicycle Thieves ... I was terribly excited ... because I wasn't sure whether one could work with an entirely amateur cast. And now I had the proof ..." Winner President's Gold & Silver Medals, New Delhi, 1955. Best Human Document, Cannes 1956. Golden Carabao, Manila 1956.
