Soumitra Chatterjee Dies: From Charulata to Ganashatru, the Best Satyajit Ray Movies Featuring the Actor That You Can Watch Online

Veteran actor Soumitra Chatterjee has died. He was 85. He breathed his last in a hospital in Kolkata. He contracted COVID-19 in October. Although, he recovered from the virus, his comorbidities deteriorated gravely. Saumitra was globally recognised as an artist. He is famous for his frequent collaborations with the late director Satyajit Ray. Chatterjee has worked in as many as 14 films directed by Ray. Saumitra made his debut with the critically acclaimed film, Apu Sansaar.  He doesn’t know why Ray cast him in so many of his films. Soumitra Chatterjee Dies at 85 After Battling COVID-19.

“He never told me anything. But I think it may be because there was an understanding, our wavelengths matched. He probably knew that I had this hunger to portray different roles and was versatile as an actor. Also, I was easy to mould and could break off from one particular image,” he said in an interview.

The actor has starred in Satyajit Ray movies like Charulata, Teen Kanya, Ganashatru, Abhijan. Soumitra also became the face of the Feluda series.

Today, to remember Chatterjee, we recommend the viewers to watch some titles by Ray. We are compiling a list of titles available to watch online.

Ganashatru

Soumitra plays Dr Ashok Gupta, who discovers a harmful bacteria in the holy water in the temple of a small town, Bhubanpur. The consumption of the holy water gives rise to jaundice spread in the town among residents and the tourists. The municipality and the temple beneficiaries avoid Gupta from making the information public.

Ashani Sanket (1973)

Based on the novel of the same name, the movie explores the impact of the Great Famine of 1943 on the villages in Bengal. The movie is included in The New York Times Guide to the Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made.

Abhijan (1962)

Talking about the film, Soumitra has said, “Manikda had already given me so many kinds of role such as Amulya in Samapti (Teen Kanya, 1961), Narsingh in Abhijaan (1962), Gangacharan in Ashani Sanket (1973), which I could strongly relate to as I come from a small town (Krishnanagar in Nadia district) and had experienced the aftermath of the 1943 Bengal famine.”

Teen Kanya (1962)

Teen Kanya is an anthology film directed by Ray. Soumitra starred in the segment called Samapti. The Academy Film Archive preserved the international version of Teen Kanya in 1996.

Charulata (1964)

The movie is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s novel The Lonely Nest. Soumitra plays Amal, who develops a friendship with his sister-in-law. She develops romantic feelings for him, but he is unable to reciprocate.

While Soumitra had lauded Ray all his life, the director has rarely returned the praises. The actor felt that it is how the director was coded. “The letter he gave to Cine Central when they held the retrospective ‘Teen doshoker Soumitra’ (Three decades of Soumitra) in 1990 is the ultimate tribute that I can expect: ‘I will have faith in Soumitra till the last day of my creative life.’ I cannot expect anything higher than this in my life,” he revealed in an interview.

Nikki Tamboli cries and says that she can’t reveal her secret.

Aly tells Jasmin that he has figured out what she wants to talk about.

Eijaz’s Secret

Eijaz enters the activity area next. “I have a problem with touch, because I was molested in childhood,” Eijaz said. He says that he had forgotten about this but five years ago he started taking therapy for his anger issues and this past resurfaced.

Nikki is up next. She says that when she was 19, she started her career with modelling. She says that she was kidnapped. She said that a casting director had her meet a man along with a few other models. The man picked her and called her later and gave her Rs 4 lakh. But later, a few men caught her and blackmailed her and looted her money and phone.

Kavita picks Nikki, as she says that she had applied oil on his head, hugged him and he was fine. But everyone else, including Nikki, still go ahead with Eijaz.

Kavita talks to Nikki and says that when Eijaz had come to her party, he hugged everyone and he is fine.

Kavita’s Secret!

Kavita says that when she was 11 years old, her math was weak. She was assigned a tutor who was above 60. Once she was alone at home with the old man, he talked dirty to her and tried to molest her. Kavita reveals that she started screaming and shouting. She was told by the man that no one would believe her.

Kavita told her mom everything. But her mom did not believe her and thought she is trying to get away from math. She says that she was never able to study math or see old men in the same light again. She asks parents to trust their kids and notice the change in their behaviour.

Nikki apologises to Eijaz.

Eijaz says that he doesn’t respect Kavita anymore because of what she said. “She hit me below the belt again,” he said.

Jasmin and Nikki pick Kavita. Aly and Abhinav pick Eijaz.
