A Flourishing Finale

Apur Sansar (The World of Apu) is the concluding part of master Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray's '"Apu Trilogy".

The Indian word "sansar" may mean both world and family. Both meanings are relevant in the context of the film, as it traces Apu's blooming into a human being, his explorations on the way as well as the phase of his life where he gains a family, again, having already lost everyone in the family he was born into. Loss is a theme which refuses to desert Apu's life but our unvanquished hero lives and grows through, and despite, his recurring losses.

Soumitra Chatterjee, later to become one of Ray's favourites, plays the adult Apu in one of his most memorable performances. Satyajit Ray is considered one of India's best ever filmmaker, if not the very best – and this film is a testimony why. Apur Sansar features several immortal scenes, each of which etches itself in the viewer's mind and any of which could serve as the North Star for a budding director as something to match and inspire. Apu's monologue with his friend Pulu as the sole audience, Aparna's (Apu's wife) discovery of her husband's abode and the final sequence deserve special mention.

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? 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.

Sometime a person wants freedom in the form of limited attachments to people or places because they have endured so much pain and loss in life. That's one of the themes here, and a reminder to me to be more empathetic towards people I randomly meet, each of whom may be carrying around hidden scars and damage, or doing things in their lives which may seem puzzling.

The third Apu film tells a pretty simple story, but I have to say, I really didn't see its big events coming, and it's full of emotional power. The quality of filmmaking is superb, with stunning cinematography from Subrata Mitra and a soundtrack from Ravi Shankar which harmonizes with its mood perfectly. Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore are heartwarming in their roles, and Satyajit Ray ties it all together beautifully. Fantastic film, with an ending that hits all the right emotional notes. See this.
