*The Hero (Nayak) is a Bengali language film with English subtitles*
Uttam Kumar plats a famous Bengali movie star who boards a train to travel to an award ceremony. En route he meets a young journalist (Sharmila Tagore) who is unimpressed by his egotism and celebrity, but decides to interview him. As a rapport develops between them, the film star reveals rather more of his inner self than he intends and is ultimately compelled to re-evaluate his life. One of Ray’s earliest original screenplays, ‘Nayak’ is a beautifully observed and sensitively performed character study.
En route to an award ceremony a movie star meets a young journalist who is unimpressed by his fame. Deciding to be interviewed anyway, a rapport develops between the two and the film star reveals rather more of his true self than planned, ultimately compelling him to re-evaluate his life.
