Ritwik Ghatak’s monumental A River Called Titash is one of the great glories of Indian cinema. Based on the acclaimed novel by Advaita Malla Barman and shot in the director’s childhood home of East Bengal, the film’s essence lies in the deceptively tranquil ebb and flow of the Titash River and the way it reflects and shapes the lives of local villagers who rely on it for survival. Stories of changing seasons, tribal disputes, star-crossed lovers, romance and death combine to create a bittersweet elegy to a way of life swept away by natural catastrophes and political upheaval.
