The Saint

The Saint

Ray’s theme of an India grappling with tradition and modernity is explored further in this classic. Gurupada can’t recover from the death of his wife. On a trip, he and his daughter, Buchki, meet the guru Birinchi and Gurupada becomes his disciple. In order to punish her boyfriend, Satya, Buchki becomes his disciple too. With his relationship in jeopardy, Satya enlists the help of his friend to uncover the truth about the ‘holy’ man.
