     15Twenty years after Charulata (1964) Ray 
     16returned to Tagore, in colour, adapting a 
     17controversial novel that had increased in 
     18stature over the years. Set during the terrorist 
     19movements following the first communal 
     20partition of Bengal (1905), the book tells a 
     21triple story, interweaving the diaries of the 
     22zamindar Nikhilesh (V. Bannerjee), a critic of 
     23nationalism, with the stories of the man’s wife 
     24Bimala (Sw. Chatterjee) and of their guest, the 
     25fiery activist Sandeep (So. Chatterjee). Sandeep 
     26and Bimala become involved with one another, 
     27which for her leads to a sense of liberation. In 
     28the end Nikhilesh dies, and Bimala is widowed, 
     29punished for her transgression (the novel ends 
     30differently, with Nikhilesh accepting Bimala 
     31back). Ray played down the novel’s political 
     32overtones in favour of a straight love triangle 
     33enacted in a meticulously researched period 
     34setting. The film, which Ray had intended as 
     35his debut work, recalls Charulata in some 
     36ways. Ray’s son, Sandeep, completed the postproduction 
     37after Ray suffered his first heart 
     38attack.
