Directed by Satyajit Ray | 1963

With Madhabi Mukherjee, Anil Chatterjee, Haradhan Bannerjee

One of master director Satyajit Ray’s finest works explores changing social customs in 1950s India as a Kolkata housewife—despite the protestations of her traditionalist husband—takes a job as a saleswoman to help support the family. With wry humor and an unwavering humanist spirit, Mahanagar vividly portrays how the forces of class, capitalism, and tradition shape women’s lives.

Restored by the Satyajit Ray Preservation Project through a collaboration of the Academy Film Archive, the Merchant-Ivory Foundation and the Film Foundation. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
