2021 marks the centenary of the late Indian cinema master Satyajit Ray. Ray’s classic Mahānagar (The Big City) focuses on the noisy, cluttered world of modern urban life, where everyday people attempt to find meaning in a world where modernity and tradition seek co-existence. Ray builds a powerful human drama that is at once a hopeful morality tale and a commentary on the identity of the modern Indian woman.
