Summary: United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region B DVD: LANGUAGES: Bengali ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Bengali ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The Big City (1963) Life at home changes when a housewife from a middle-class, conservative family in Calcutta gets a job as a salesperson. The Lonely Wife (1964) The lonely wife of a newspaper editor falls in love with her visiting cousin-in-law, who shares her love for literature. The Coward (1965) A successful screenwriter (Soumitra Chatterjee) is traveling the country researching his next script when his car breaks down in a small town. The owner (Haradhan Bannerjee) of a nearby tea estate offers him a place to stay for the night, and the writer is surprised to discover that his former lover (Madhabi Mukherjee) is now married to the man. Ray makes the most out of this small cast and short time (the film takes place over the course of one day) to create an indelible portrait of missed opportunities. The Holy Man (1965) A devout Hindu family falls victim to a charlatan posing as a holy man. The Hero (1966) En route to Delhi to receive an award, a Bengali film star reevaluates his success through his fellow passengers, dreams and past experiences.
