Reading 'The Director's Mind' by Ujjal Chakraborty

Am reading this brilliant book by Ujjal. Have finished 7 chapters. Inspiring and detailed. Based on the work of masters like Ray. Pather Panchali seems to be the textbook for Ujjal. Covers several aspects like characterisation, dialogues, editing, music, location, shot selection, costumes etc.

Ray has been an inspiration for long for me, especially his Gopi Gayen Bhaga Bayen - Remember watching the movie on a Sunday on a national telecast. The movie left an indelible impression on me. There have been modern attempt and even an animated version recently. The original B&W version by the master is still fresh.
