We are certain that the Ray Festival will greatly appeal to the mature viewer with a taste for meaningful cinema.?

SIMABADDHA, the powerful drama follows a young executive?s climb up the corporate ladder and his gradual immersion into corruption seen through the eyes of his sister-in-law. While DEVI is a fascinating account of how an aged landowner has a revelation that his daughter-in-law is the Goddess Kali incarnate, POST MASTER beautifully explores the nuances of a complex relationship between a young man and his maid. JOI BABA FELUNATH starring Utpal Dutt and Soumitra Chatterjee is the story of a detective who begins to investigate the theft of a priceless deity of Lord Ganesha.
