The three films of this trilogy -- the last one is Apur Sansar -- are widely considered the best Indian films ever made. Also see Ray's other great films The Music Room, The Big City and Charulata and Ritwik Ghatak's brilliant films The Cloud-Capped Star and Reason, Debate and a Story.

Apur Sanshar, the last part of the trilogy, is worth seeing also. The complete work is monumental.
