Satyajit Ray referred to Bimal Da as the ‘Pioneer of Indian Cinema’. He was known to be everyone’s first choice as a director and he received a lot of international accolades. Bimal Da began his career as a cinematographer under director, P.C. Barua. His first project as a cameraman was Devdas, based on the novel of Sarat Chandra. He turned director with a Bengali film, Udayer Pathe. After shifting his base to Mumbai, he made few films but the world took notice of this gentle legend with the classic film, Do Bigha Zamin. For the connoisseur of Hindi cinema, Bimal Roy’s Devdas remains one of the most accomplished and factual renditions of Sarat Chandra’s classic. It is still remembered for its stunning performances by artists Dilip Kumar, Suchitra Sen and Vyjayanthimala..

Don’t forget to tune in to The Bimal Roy Festival presented by Boman Irani co-powered by State Bank of India, every Saturday at 8 PM starting from February 06, starting with Do Bigha Zamin.
