Ghare Baire is symbolic of a philosophical revolution in pre – independent Bengal. Ray brings out the pros cons of the Swadeshi movement through the charismatic Swadeshi leader Sandip who fights for the cause by basing his parasite like existence on Nikhil, a liberal, who urges his wife, Bimala to explore and expand her understanding of the world beyond him. Nikhil quietly pushes Bimala towards discovering her world at the cost of witnessing her falling in love with another man. Ghare Baire is a story of the trials tribulations of the human mind coming to terms with its own learning.
