Satyajit Ray - Legendary Indian Film Producer

 

Satyajit Ray Satyajit Ray was known for his humanistic approach to filmmaking; a careful blend of relationships, emotions, struggle, conflicts, joys and sorrows. Although his films were made in Bengali, they are of universal interest to all walks of life.

"He is controlled, precise, meticulous, and yet, evokes deep emotional response from the audience. His films depict a fine sensitivity without using melodrama or dramatic excesses. He evolved a cinematic style that is almost invisible. He strongly believed that: 'The best technique is the one that's not noticeable'."

Ray was directly involved in and controlled most aspects of his films, writing all the screenplays of his films, designing sets and costumes, composing the musical scores, designing the publicity posters as well as producing and directing his films.

Famed producer Akira Kurosawa wrote:
"The quiet but deep observation, understanding and love of the human race, which are characteristic of all his films, have impressed me greatly. ...I feel that he is a "giant" of the movie industry."

Among many honors received, he received the honorary Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1992 - "In recognition of his rare mastery of the art of motion pictures and for his profound humanitarian outlook, which has had an indelible influence on filmmakers and audiences throughout the world."
