Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Mrinal Sen: The Survivor (Charitavali Series)
Description
From the Jacket:

His films are sensitive and realistic portrayals of ordinary people. For director Mrinal Sen, films are a medium through which he has commented, criticized and empathized with people and their daily dilenumas.

A pioneer of the parallel cinema in India, Mrinal Sen offered a refreshing change from the escapist fairy tales of mainstream films. His films are always a very personal and passionate response to the world around him. Created with a clear eyed honesty, these sensitive portraits of people remain with the viewer long after the films are over.

In this book discover the mind and imagination behind classics such as Bhuvan Shome, Ek Din Pvatidin and Akaaler Sandhane. Often narrated in the thoughtful words of the director himself.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
