  • Critic Reviews of "The World of Apu"

    TIME Magazine
    August 14, 2012

    The World of Apu completes, in alternations of suffering and joy, one of the most vital and abundant movies ever made.

    Time Out

    Great acting, remarkable use of locations, a humanistic ethos that's both wise and wary.

    October 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 Reader
    October 24, 2007

    Though the rhythm of the storytelling is choppy and Apu himself seems incompletely realized, the first appearance of the remarkable Sharmila Tagore as his well-to-do bride upgrades the film's middle section.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    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-Times
    March 21, 2001

    What we sense all through The Apu Trilogy is a different kind of life than we are used to.

    October 16, 2015 Aparajito and Apur Sansar the scope of the cinematography opens up to reflect Apu's broadening experience of life.

    Before our eyes Apu has grown up.

    February 09, 2015

    ...exquisitely joyful and romantic.

    Combustible Celluloid
    August 14, 2012

    Director Satyajit Ray forever changed the face of India's immense film industry with this uniquely personal, practically homemade, trilogy.

    Empire Magazine
    August 07, 2012

    Humanist film-making at its best.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    October 03, 2008

    It's a classic filmed in an old-fashioned timeless way that never goes out of fashion.
