Trivia:

Ghatak is regarded as one of the best Indian directors of the 20th Century, together with Satyajit Ray and Mrinal Sen. Despite that, he is still largely unknown in and outside of India. Fortunately, this is slowly changing as his films become accessible again and can now be studied in detail. See more »
