    One thought on “Our Films, Their Films

    1. Vijeta

      An enjoyable, informative book by Satyajit Ray offering commentaries on our (Indian) films and their (rest of the world) films. Written in the manner of a discourse and observations on films it does not have a method or a definite purpose, but it is a must-read for film buffs.

    2. Kiran

      I love Satyajit Ray movies because his movies are real and that he took Indian cinema to a higher level. His way of cinematic expression of pathos and revelry is moving and touching. But I never thought he was such a powerful writer. His literary style is just amazing and frankly I was glued to the book just to learn how to express one's thought process so eloquently and effectively.

    3. Sid

      I have read many works by this legend in his unique Bengali detectiveand Bengali scientist genres, and I had heard him speak, but I wasunprepared for the depth of insight and economy of prose in hiswriting about the subject of cinema. Again, like George Orwellin Homage to Catalonia, a style that is simply his own.

    4. Souvik

      'Our films their films' is yet another authoritative stamp on the eternal genius of Satyajit Ray. A must read for any movie buff, and before reading it, prepare to be blown by his handling of the English language. His sharp insights on foreign movies show why he is the greatest director ever from India. Respect.

      Opens thoughts and minds to real cinemaCinema as exposed to the general mass is mostly couched and is far away from any expression of art. This book exposed one to the finer cinema that one can truly pursue if one is interested. Satyajit Ray is a master himself in this medium and his critique even if not fully comprehensible to the common folk, has the power to open their eyes to an enriching and fulfilling work of cinematic art

    6. Vishu

      A fantastic collection of essays as Ray runs a discerning eye over the many different genres, directors and movies of his time. You wish he were still alive and able to give you insights into movie making of the current day.

      #Our films,Their FilmsThe intro of the book starts with "A filmmaker rarely writes about films"-This would have been a huge loss if not written.This book divided into two sects Our films and their films.This is an awesome collection of film articles,critical comments about different world movies,books and autobiographies related to books and the cine-future.Though written long back but he was a visionary and pointed out the right reason of the present standard of Indian movies-elementary confusi [...]

      Recently had the good fortune to catch "The Music Room" by Ray saheb on big screen and it just reinforced my admiration for the artist that Ray saheb was (feel uncomfortable to address him without a title). The 'Apu' trilogy were equally spectacular cinematic experience. So I was glad to chance upon these essays by the genius.The book is a confirmation on how well Ray saheb knew this most complex and technical art form, how he was so knowledgeable on the precise requirements including the psycho [...]

      Satyajit Ray's Our Films, Their Films took me a bit off-guard. When I had first picked up the book I was expecting to read about the various behind-the-lens experiences of the great director. While the book did discuss few such unique tales it is much more than a collection of behind-the-lens instances.The book analyses the differences in Indian and western cinema and discusses the various possible reasons for the divergences. A keen follower of western films, Ray talks about the monotony in Ind [...]

      This invaluable selection of articles and essays that Ray penned for newspapers, magazines, etc. offers deep insights into his ideology of film-making, his inspirations, his struggles and growth as a director, and his take on Indian and World cinema of the times. Neo-realism, avant-garde, human behavior and relationships, aesthetics - these words are oft-repeated and signifies his style of movies that repeatedly brought him critical acclaim from across the world. The writing is heavy in parts, e [...]

      The man who made some of my favourite films and wrote the beloved Feluda stories discourses on films at large. What comes across strongly for me is his love for Calcutta, and it is a wondrous thing to see. It is also interesting to read about the stalwarts of World Cinema in such familiar terms.A recommended read for anyone with a medium knowledge of films in general and a love for Ray's works in particular.

      #78I haven't seen any Ray's movies but I always have the idea that they are great. But this book really put me down. More than filmmaker I found him as an critic here. He judged so many talented people. For some movies he thought they were too far from general audience and for some movies he thought they were still conventional. I wonder who was/is going to make a standard. I really hope his movies won't let me down.

    13. Tamal

      A work which unites Ray's most essential analyses and commentaries on the Cinema __ from Kurosawa to John Ford. to Charlie Chaplin to Francois Truffaut. The intelligence of the critique strikes us immediately and ray succeeds in making us share his immense love for this form of ARTWorth Reading

    14. Phillip

      a nice collection of mostly short pieces reflecting ray's concerns for indian cinema and some great diary style entries he wrote while filming various projects. great for getting a bit more insight on his process and how he approaches achieving the high level of humanity that is the hallmark of his work.

    15. Trinankur

      One of the finest books that can be offered to a greenhorn of cinema. Glimpses of Global Scenario with crisp analysis and little trivias here and there about the towering figure of Indian cinema, this book is a must for every cinema lover.

    16. Dev Dath

    17. Sankar Raj

      A great work on the nature of films by a great director.His language is simple. He discusses the kind of films made in India and other parts of the world.A must for a movie buff.
