Plot Outline:

Apu is an aimless young man is invited to a wedding by an old college friend. This is a life-altering event, for after arriving and finding the bridegroom to be quite mad, Apu is offered as a substitute. Although not so keen on the idea, he accepts and takes his beautiful bride with him to Calcutta. But the bliss is not to last, as she dies in childbirth and, in a fit of grief, Apu leaves his child, and much of the world, behind. It takes years before he is able to face worldly responsibilities again. -- Chris Kavan

The best of the Apu's trilogy. Only because I'm in the same age of Apu in this one. Apu finally finds out that life carries some responsabilities and that he can achieve goodness not being selfish and thinking about give. Wichs is pretty much how we can be happy. This movie is a masterpiece of visuals and one of the finest piece of cinema ever. Watch it in order if you can!

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."
