Artificial Eye to Release Satyajit Ray's Charulata

Posted March 13, 2013 06:53 PM by Webmaster

Artificial EyeBritish distributors Artificial Eye have confirmed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray legendary Indian director Satyajit Ray's Charulata a.k.a The Lonely Wife (1964). The preliminary release date set by the distributors is June 24th.

Cited by Ray as one of his best films, this tale of a neglected housewife in Victorian-era Calcutta is adapted from a story by Rabindranath Tagore. Sailen Mukherjee stars as a newspaper journalist who is driven more by professional ambition than the needs of his cultured and intelligent wife Charaulata (Madhabi Mukherjee). Sensing her loneliness, he enlists the help of his cousin Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee), a sensitive would-be writer, to keep her company. Charu and Amal hit it off and, almost inevitably, their feelings for each other begin to deepen...

Note: Director Ray's The Music Room is currently available on Blu-ray in the United States, via the Criterion Collection. See our review here.

Here's hoping Sony gives us the Apu films one of these years. The DVDs has been out of print for a while now, and the transfer quality wasn't all that great to begin with.

Excellent. I'm also hoping that someone like Andrew Robinson can do a commentary or video essay for the film. Here's hoping for other Ray gems like The Chess Players and Kanchenjunga to come out in HD, even if they're not from the most pristine sources.

And by "years ago", Cremildo means less than two. The Music Room was a true revelation for me and I look forward to more of Ray's work on blu.

I was so excited that I had forgotten I already owned Music Room from Criterion. :-)

I've already preordered Charulata. I very much enjoyed my copy of The Music Room (as usual, Criterion did a fine job) and look forward to seeing many more films on blu-ray of this important but grossly underrepresented film director.
