The legend of Bimal Roy

The man who spoke through pictures…
The man who turned everything he created to a classic…
The man who mentored the likes of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Gulzar in their initial days…
The man who was the pioneer of telling simple, subtle, meaningful and pathbreaking stories through his cinema…

That is the brilliance of Bimal Roy, and his world of magical films… Gone too soon, his films are still relevant with their bold social commentary… Too many brilliant films but Sujata, Bandini, Do Bigha Zamin and Kabuliwala are special favorites…

He would have turned 109 today….
