WIN TICKETS TO SEE SATYAJIT RAY FILM CLASSIC ‘CHARULATA’

WIN TICKETS TO SEE SATYAJIT RAY FILM CLASSIC ‘CHARULATA’

August 18 2014

We have some tickets to give away to a great classic but don’t hesistate, you only have a bit more than 48 hours to enter!

IT WAS his own favourite and a film that best encapsulates a style many have attempted to emulate but have rarely ever matched.

A new restoration of Satyajit Ray’s 1964 classic “Charaluta” (‘The Lonely Wife‘) comes out on August 22 and is being released by the British Film Institute (BFI).

To mark this, we have teamed up with the good folks at the BFI to offer THREE PAIRS OF TICKETS for the screenings at the BFI South Bank between August 22 and September 18. It will also screen in other venues across the country.

To apply to enter a grand draw, all you need to do is send an email to editor@asianculturevulture.com and mark it ‘Charulata’ in the subject line by 12pm on Thursday, August 21.

Or like this entry on our FB or like the ACV page between now and 10am August 21 and we will add your name to the draw automatically.

Charaluta” is a charming and, at time humorous, exploration of friendship, desire and the gaps within a marriage.

There are two showings a day at the BFI, so there is plenty of choice…enter the draw. Normal terms and conditions, apply you must be 18 and resident in the UK.

This is what the BFI’s Margaret Deriaz says about “Charulata”.

Satyajit Ray’s own favourite of his films, set in late 19-century Bengal, boasts a marvellously vital Victorian heroine: Charulata, spellbindingly portrayed by Madhabi Mukherjee, is beautiful, intellectual and dangerously bored.

Racing from window to window in her vast, ornate mansion, Charulata spies hungrily on the outside world through opera glasses.

Her wealthy husband, the high-minded editor of a political journal, is too preoccupied with the latest tax legislation and the forthcoming English election (Disraeli v Gladstone) to pay much attention to his wife. Somewhat unwisely, he invites his charming younger cousin Amal, a would-be poet, to keep her company and encourage her literary talent. This is a household of seething, suppressed emotions, subtly revealed by Subrata Mitra’s eloquent camera.

A richly atmospheric soundtrack evokes the wider world, while Ray’s wistful score and the romantic songs beloved of Charulata and Amal heighten the sense of longing. Exquisitely adapted from a novella by Rabindranath Tagore, “Charulata” was described by its director as “the one film I would make the same way if I had to do it again”. This ravishing new restoration does justice to its perfection.

Main picture: Charulata (Madhabi Mukherjee) and Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee)
