About the Film

The story of Nagarik (The City Dweller), the first film made by Ritwik Ghatak(1925 1976) is a story of the triumph of a group of technicians dedicated to the medium. It is thought to be well scripted, acted, and filmed with scenes that show unique visual and aural registers.This film had never been released in Ghatak's lifetime and was given up for lost. The film centers round a middle class family and its gradual impoverishment; they move house to a less respectable locality, and in the end, to a slum. This film has been considered overtly Marxist considering Ghatak's involvement with group theatre and the Indian People's Theatre Association.

If you want to be a star then you must follow your own path, shine your own light and never be afraid of the darkness, coz that's the time they shine the brightest!!
