The cinema is built for the big screen and high sound, so that a person seems to travel to another world and have a real life experience.
The students of Delhi Public School, North Kolkata, celebrated the birth anniversary of the great Indian film director and Oscar Award winner, Satyajit Ray, and that of the first non-European poet to win a Nobel Prize in Literature in the year 1913, Rabindranath Tagore, in school through the presentation of films in the school Cinema hall. This celebration was organised by the students of CINE CLUB over three days (2nd – 4th May). Students of different schools came to our school to watch a movie named Rabindranath Tagore, directed by Satyajit Ray. This movie was released on the 100th birth centenary year of Rabindranath Tagore. Satyajit Ray made this film on the works and life of Rabindranath Tagore and the most interesting part of this movie is that you will not find even a single poem that was written by Rabindranath Tagore in this movie. As Satyajit Ray was not happy with the English translation and believed that ‘it would not make the right impression if recited,’ and the people would not consider Tagore ‘a very great poet’, based on those translations. As well as in this movie Ray wanted to illustrate Rabindranath Tagore not as a poet but as a teacher, a philosopher, an author and a lot more. This film is produced by the Films division of India and the cinematography is done by Soumendu Roy. It was edited by Dulal Dutta and the music is played by Jyotirindra Moitra. So on the first day Delhi Public School, Howrah was our guest, followed by on the second day it was H.M. Educational Centre and on the last day it was Indira Gandhi School, Saltlake. We were really excited to watch this movie as it was, in the first place, a black and white movie and secondly it deals with the works of Rabindranath Tagore. After the movie ended, the students asked a few questions regarding the movie to our Bengali ma’am, Saswati Majumdar and our film studies sir, Debashish Sen Sharma, and clarified their doubts. After this the guests got some refreshments and were thanked by the host school for coming. It was really a great experience for me to watch such a historical film.
