An aged feudal lord’s obsession with his past glory and his music room is powerfully conveyed by the doyen of early Bengali cinema, Chhabi Biswas. In a rapidly disintegrating estate, the zamindar hosts a music soirée to salvage his reputation from the crass but rich traders around him. Ray’s compelling psychological and class drama is interspersed with riveting music and dance performances.
