Teaspoon – Award Winning Hindi Short Film 2015 by Aban Bharucha Deohans

Rajiv, wife Kavita, and Rajiv’s father, live in an apartment. Rajiv works as an Insurance agent, and travels a lot. Kavita represents a Cosmetic company and works from home, as she cannot leave her paralytic father-in-law alone. Also, a habit that Kavita hates is the manner in which the old man summons her. He mulishly hangs on to a Teaspoon, which he uses to bang on the bedpost to call her. And what’s frustrating is that he never does this when Rajiv is at home. Hence Rajiv cannot understand Kavita’s frustration. A fight over dinner escalates and the resentment is carried forward to the next morning. Series of incidents become ingredients of a Molotov cocktail that lead to a disturbing end.

Pather Panchali: A Living Resonance

‘Pather Panchali’ (Song of the Road), directed by Satyajit Ray was made in 1955, but more than 50 years after its completion, the film continues to resonate today among audiences, filmmakers and critics alike. What is it about the film that allows for its continuing relevance both in India and abroad? ‘Pather Panchali – A Living Resonance’ travels back to locales where the characters within Apu’s world came alive. With interviews from Richard Attenbourough, Sandip Ray, Girish Kasaravalli and many other admirers of Satyajit Ray who try to interpret the film, what emerges is the struggles that went into the making of the film, the nuances behind Ray’s humanist interpretation of the world and his relentless dedication to his art.
