Critic Reviews of "Pather Panchali"BBC.comApril 03, 2017
Extremely touching in its simplicity, emotional range and visual beauty, it's no wonder it became the first Indian film to achieve widespread international acclaim and establish Ray as a master filmmaker.New YorkerMay 04, 2015
Beautiful, sometimes funny, and full of love, it brought a new vision of India to the screen.TIME MagazineOctober 17, 2011
It is a pastoral poem dappled with the play of brilliant images and strong, dark feelings, a luminous revelation of Indian life in language that all the world can understand.GuardianOctober 24, 2007
Fresh as a daisy after all these years, Satyajit Ray's 1955 spellbinder comes underpinned by a tumultuous Ravi Shankar sitar and paints a ground's-eye portrait of life in an impoverished Bengali village.Chicago ReaderOctober 24, 2007
Satyajit Ray's beautiful first feature.VarietyOctober 24, 2007
Film justly won the 'most human document award' at the 1956 Cannes Film Fest, unveiling a mature film talent in director Satyajit Ray.Total FilmApril 03, 2017
Incredibly, Ray had never directed a scene before Pather Panchali, Mitra had never shot one, and the children who were cast hadn't even been tested. Just how this team of novices fashioned one of cinema's enduring classics is a miraculous mystery.East Bay ExpressJune 19, 2015
The rewards are rich and unforgettable.CinePassionMarch 22, 2015
Satyajit Ray's glowingly hardscrabble debutLarsenOnFilmJanuary 16, 2015
...truly one of the most delicate, humble and deeply felt movies I've ever seen.Cinema WriterAugust 24, 2010
There is a faith in the art form here, a pure, loving, embracing faith that really restores my own faith in movies.
