Satyajit Ray was no doubt to be one of the most talented and far-sighting directors of all time. On the film veteran’s 26th death anniversary today, Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra remembered Satyajit Ray and entitled him “the master” in the art of filmmaking.
The director took to Twitter to pay tribute to the master, whose cinematic genius was the embodiment of incorporeal “absolute precision”. Sudhir tweeted a photograph of Ray and captioned, “The master. The absolute precision with the frame and what’s outside. The sound suggests the world outside and inside the head. The music begins at exactly the right point. The dialogue suggests the future and the past. And you know what: one doesn’t notice any of this.”
Ray’s filmography includes international masterpieces such as “Apu’s trilogy, “Jalsaghar”, “Charulata”, “Teen Kanya” and “Shatranj Ke Khiladi”. He was one of the few directors who used to make a storyboard for his every film.
In 1992, Ray was awarded an Honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. The National Award-winning director died on April 23, 1992, at the age of 71.
Satyajit Ray was a gem to Indian cinema and will always be a person whom new aspirants can look up to for growth and creativity.
