APUR SANSAR (1959) presents a picture of domestic bliss in the midst of economic privation. On the other hand, the natural abundance in the first two films of the Trilogy is transformed here into a sense of desolation. This dual aspect becomes particularly meaningful against the backdrop of the emerging new melodrama of the time.

Moinak Biswas is Professor of Film Studies at Jadavpur University, Kolkata. He also makes films. He also makes films.
