Uttoran

The Broken Journey

Directed by Sandip Ray
India, 1994
Drama
      Bengali
      English

Synopsis

A successful high society doctor has to treat a peasant in a village and realises that, despite the progress made by medical science, many basic treatments are far beyond the reach of common people in India.

Our take

Uttoran sharply captures the social issues arising from economic disparity through the moral awakening of an affluent doctor when he is confronted by the reality where witchcraft is preferred to medical treatments. Directed by Sandip Ray and written by his father, the Indian auteur Satyajit Ray.
