*'The Big City' (Mahanagar) is a Bengali language film with English subtitles*

Set in the mid ‘50s, Ray’s often humorous story of conflicting social values in India’s lower-middle class stars Madhabi Mukherjee as housewife Arati Mazumdar. Finding it difficult to make ends meet on her husband’s salary alone, Arati takes up a job as a sales woman and finds that she revels in her new-found freedom. But Arati’s independence and burgeoning confidence alarms her traditionalist family and threatens to throw her life into chaos.

‘One of the most rewarding screen experiences of our time. I warmly encourage you to see it.’ Roger Ebert
