Critic Reviews of "The World of Apu"TIME MagazineAugust 14, 2012
The World of Apu completes, in alternations of suffering and joy, one of the most vital and abundant movies ever made.Time OutAugust 07, 2012
Great acting, remarkable use of locations, a humanistic ethos that's both wise and wary.VarietyOctober 24, 2007
Director Satyajit Ray, with greater technical means, makes the truth of his relationships and the revelation of India the main trumps of the film. Wit, tenderness and intrinsic human revelations illuminate this unusual film.Chicago ReaderOctober 24, 2007

An impressive capstone is put not only upon a touching human drama but also upon the development of a genuine artist's skill.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 21, 2001
