The Lonely Wife

The Lonely Wife

The Lonely Wife (Charulata) is considered Ray’s crowning achievement. Set 1880’s Calcutta, the beautiful Charulata lives in an opulent splendour secluded from the outside world. Her husband, Bhupati, adores her but becomes consumed by the publication of his new political newspaper. Charulata’s heart is captured with the arrival of Bhupati’s cousin Amal, leading to complication, disillusionment and heartbreak.

‘One of Ray’s best films with a superb music score of his own composition’ Time Out.

WINNER: Silver Berlin Bear, 1965 Berlinale.
