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. Bengali film Udayer Pather will be screened on the last, at the Prasads IMAX.

Udayer Pathey is the story of Gopa, the daughter of a rich mill-owner, and Anup, a poor but idealistic novelist. Gopa meets Anup through his sister, and the first meeting leads to friction between the two of them. Anup is offered a job, unknown to her, by Gopa's brother, and agrees to ghost-write a novel for him. He meets Gopa again and throws away the job, but is persuaded by the brother to continue. As they meet, the friction between Gopa and Anup vanishes. She becomes his constant companion and gets involved in the social and development activities Anup is associated with. Just as the two minds meet, Gopa's family learns of their attachment and is firmly opposed to it. In the final stage, Gopa walks out of her home, leaves all her riches and heritage behind to follow the path of love.

Udayer Pathey was the first film of Bimal Roy, and was a critical as well as commercial hit. It was dubbed into Hindi and called Humrahi, a film to which Satyajit Ray acknowledged his debt.

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.
