Beautiful music was a hallmark of director Bimal Roy’s films. His work included significant productions such as Do Bigha Zameen, Parineeta, Biraj Bahu, Madhumati, Sujata, Bandini and Parakh, which are showcases of realistic situations and acting. He was honoured with a number of awards and lauded internationally as a director of great substance. Sadly, he passed away in 1966 but has left behind a cinematic treasure house.
