World of Apu , The ( Apur Sansar ) 
The World of Apu review
3/4 stars

Highly regarded as one of the greatest movies which influenced Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver and several Philip Kaufman films. A film that centers on an unemployed graduate living in a rented room in Calcutta named Apu Roy (Soumitra Chatterjee). Apu meets an old friend Pulu to make a novel and attend his cousins wedding. Aparna (Sharmila Tagore) meets Apu and eventually becomes close. The earnest performance of Soumitra Chatterjee resonates while the direction was seamless. The soundtrack adds to some of the grim sequences. The screenplay obviously one of its strengths with lines: "Many things are not fair." "Things will change." "There's such a thing as father duty." Subliminal messages of selfishness, ambition, responsibility, marriage, death and starting-up were very evident. The World of Apu is a highly influential movie that is worth viewing.
