The Bimal Roy Centenary Committee, in collaboration with Moving Images and the Hyderabad Film Club, is organising a film festival of the legendary director the late Bimal Roy, from 29th to 31st January, at Prasads IMAX and Cinemax.

A total of 9 films - Devdas, Do Bigha Zameen, Parakh, Yahudi, Madhumati, Bandini, Sujata, Udayer Pathey and Parineeta, and a documentary titled Remembering Bimal Roy, will be screened during the 3-day festival. Sujata will be screened on the last day of the festival, at Cinemax.

Sujata is a 1959 Hindi film directed by Bimal Roy. The film starred Sunil Dutt and Nutan supported by Lalita Pawar and Shashikala, and explores the situation of caste in India. The music is by S D Burman, and the lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. It was selected for the 1960 Cannes Film Festival.

Sujata is a romance between a Brahmin young man, Adheer (Sunil Dutt) and an untouchable woman, Sujata (Nutan). The movie has Gandhi's fight against untouchability and the myth of Chandalika in Buddhism as its subtexts, on the basis of which it tries to criticize the practice of untouchability in India.

Bimal Roy (12 July 1909 - 7 January 1966) was one of the most acclaimed Hindi film directors of all time. He is particularly noted for his realistic and socialistic films like Do Bigha Zameen, Parineeta, Biraj Bahu, Madhumati, Sujata, and Bandini, making him a significant part of Hindi cinema.

Roy was born to a Bengali family in Dhaka, and after India's independence, moved to India. He entered cinema as a camera assistant with New Theatres Pvt. Ltd, during which time he assisted director P C Barua on the 1935 hit Devdas starring K.L. Saigal. He then went on to win a number of awards throughout his career - including 11 Filmfare Awards, a National Film Award, and the International Prize of the Cannes Film Festival.

Entry is free for everyone, and passes are available one hour before each screening. Please contact 98496-16063 / 93910-202 for further details.
