A well-off family is paid an unexpected, and rather unwanted, visit by a man claiming to be the woman's long-lost uncle. The initial suspicion with which they greet the man slowly dissolves... See full summary »

Change your perception towards Movie by watching it.
After watching 'Pather Panchali' & 'Aparajito'; the 1st and 2nd two epics of Apu Trilogy, I unable to control myself to wait for sometime to watch the third epic 'The World of Apu' directed by Academy Honorary Award winning(in 19992), the great director Satyajit Ray. Satyajit Ray paints how much covered a bitter pain that breaks someone's heart in his life. Someone means the main character Apu; which half of life is already reflected in his 1st & 2nd epic.
It is seen that Apu had lost his elder sister and father before he knows the value of life. His mother struggles for his life and making him into a educated person though he should turn into a priest as his their family profession. But director have no mercy upon him. His mother had passed away when he was studying at Kolkata after 10th passing. The story ends up here and so we don't know what happened in his life after everything lost.
At the 1st light of "The World of Apu" we have seen that Apu is grown up and become turn into a healthy young man, struggling to live without any distress of his past life. He learns to live into a new life. He lives as a tenant in a small room of Kolkata unable to give rent for several months. The story is running on and then suddenly changes the track. We are happy to see his delightful face after getting his life partner or wife suddenly after many years. Now he lives in a romantic world. But again the track changes. He losses everything. After 5 years he is ready to meet a boy named Kajal(5 years old) who always wait to see his father's face. Is Kajal Apu's son? If yes, does Kajal accept him as a father?...to know everything you should watch the movie which is easily available on torrent.
There have no error in direction. You can feel a different taste. Acting is everywhere perfect. Great work is done by Soumitra Chatterjee(as Apu), Sharmila Tagore(as Aparna, wife of Apu) and other actors. Alok Chakravarty who acts in a very sort periods as the 5 years old boy touches the heart. Director is successful to reflect the story in his three trilogy. So before watching Apur Sansar(3rd part,called it in Bengali) you should watch 1st Pather Panchali and then Aparajito. Though it is released in 1955-1959, still it is the best i ever seen.
