The first of Ray’s Calcutta Trilogy, adapted from Sunil Gangopadhyay’s novel, is set in the turbulent years of the communist Naxalite movement of the late 1960s. Siddhartha is a middle-class college graduate in search of a job amid the social turmoil. Alienated from his communist brother and his socially ambitious sister, his appearance at a farcical job interview plays out as dark comedy.
