Agantuk is Satyajit Ray’s last film and adapted from his short story Atithi, meaning guest. A family is paid an unexpected, and rather unwanted, visit by a man claiming to be Anita’s long lost uncle. The initial suspicion with the man slowly dissolves as he regales them with stories of his travels. The family is suspicious of the stranger, believing him to be an imposter with a financial scam to sell, only to find him leave unexpectedly, leaving behind some insightful observations.

MUSIC OF SATYAJIT RAY

Like his films, Music of Satyajit Ray is a multilayered blending of Western sense and Indian sensibility. Ray has brought to his filmmaking a musical sense and skill, that was as much a gift of his family as product of personal cultivation. But the most important thing is that his musical background did not make his films a pretext for his musical obsession on the contrary he used music as an element in the organic structure of a film.
