Raja Ram Nohan Roy (also known as Rammohan Roy) (1772 - 1833) was the founder of the Brahmo Sabha movement in 1828. This led to the Brahmo Samaj, an influential Bengali socio-religious reform movement. For his many and varied activities and his contributions to Indian (Bengali) society, Raja Ram Mohan Roy is regarded as one of the most significant figures in the Bengali renaissance of the early 19th century.

Much as I love this film, I wish that any new viewer might first encounter it on a big screen, with its lovely, rhapsodic recreation of its late 19th Century setting is most apparent. The Chekhov parallels are overwhelming-- same period, same bittersweet attention to over-privileged lives, more than anything else the same rare affinity for female characters.
