Neglected by her ambitious journalist husband, the lonely Charulata befriends his cousin, a sensitive aspiring writer, and almost inevitably their feelings for each other begin to deepen. Adapted from a story by Rabindranath Tagore, Ray considered this sensitively realised drama one of his finest achievements.

Charu is adored by her husband who is one of the most respectable aristocrats in the higher social echelons in colonial Calcutta,their political intellectual discussions are just as enthusiastic as their exploration of the intricacies of mozart,ibsen ,literature ,piano and music ,this is a private sacred intimate milieu where a virtuous woman finds herself heeding thoughts which are ambivalent to her breeding ,she spurns herself and almost becomes a stranger to herself ,as if in self-loathing .
The internal psychological strife is beautifully depicted through the reactions of other characters surrounding her ,the daily domestic chores and her observaviotions of the street life from her balcony,which is almost a voyeuristic pleasure .Read more ›
I own the Artificial Eye DVD version and have also seen this film on at the BFI screens; I must say that the Blu-Ray version presented here is superb. The picture quality, subtitling and sound are a significant improvement on previous versions. Perhaps this version is from the key works of Satayjit Ray being restored over in the US.
Well done to Artificial Eye and great value for money too!
Having said that, it is possible to follow the story very easily as it is straightfoward.
