Madhabi Mukherjee in The Big City

1967 NR

Satyajit Ray directs this thought-provoking examination of feminism in 1960s India, a story about a traditional housewife who's exposed to the working world and makes a radical new friend. At first, Arati takes a job to help her husband make ends meet. But when he's fired, she becomes the sole breadwinner -- and their relationship is never the same.
