maybe a film for mature viewers(cinematically,i.e!)
a truly underrated masterpiece.as a child growing up in a Ray-worshipping family i'd always been told about this gem,but as a child and an adolescent it never made a deep enough impression upon me.after a few hundred truly excellent movies and twenty years later one late night viewing opened my eyes .figuratively ,i mean!i think i needed to find out WHAT a good movie is before truly appreciating kanchenjungha. almost the best performances of their careers from all the artistes in the movie.veteran actor Chhabi Biswas gives the performance of a lifetime as Raibahadur Indranath .Ray has commented elsewhere that some characters such as Raibahdur Indranath Chowdhury here,and the Zamindar Bishwambhar Roy in Jalsaghar could not have been fleshed out by any other than the late Chhobi Biswas.and with his death the Indian film industry suffered an irreplaceable loss. somebody else has commented that the print quality was bad and dark so he didn't like it.i have heard many to have come up come with similar allegations. fact remains that Ray shot this film with masterfully chosen available light conditions(read:no reflectors,you morons!)to depict the subtle interplay of light and shade to blend in with progress of the storyline!(as an aside ray recounts the sad story of a Bollywood film crew who arrived in Darjeeling at the same time as ray's team,and were still waiting for the elusive sun to arrive so they could begin shooting by the time ray had his whole film in the can and packed up to go home!) the climactic scene of the kanchenjungha suddenly making a brilliant appearance at the penultimate hour never fails to bring out goosebumps!definitely recommended.
