SYNOPSIS: The year is 1955. Aparajito Ray, a young filmmaker is being interviewed on All India Radio, Calcutta. He has just arrived on the global scene with his debut film Pother Podaboli which has created a sensation in World Cinema and has bagged a prestigious international award. Throughout the length of this film, relevant sections of his life, from his formative years as a young cineaste to the huge success of his very first film is interspersed with the interview. He formed the first Film Society in Calcutta with fellow cinephiles while working as a visualizer at a British advertising agency. Along with his stint in advertising, he started to moonlight as an illustrator and a book cover designer. It was during this process that he comes across a novel with immense cinematic possibilities. Soon after he was sent for a six-month-long training at the London office of his company. During the course of his stay, he gets to see nearly 100 films from all over the world. The film that inspired him the most was an Italian film, ‘The Bicycle Rider’ by Vittorio Rossi. This film became the template on which he designed the making of Pother Podaboli. Our film is all about how Aparajito overcomes all odds to finally achieve his seemingly impossible dream. This film is not a biopic on Satyajit Ray but the protagonist is modeled on the great filmmaker and the story is based on the making of the masterpiece, Pather Panchali.
