Kshudhita Pashan / Khudito Pashan / Hungry Stones (1960) DVD9
One of the most uncompromising filmmakers in the nation, Tapan Sinha was an ardent fan of Rabindranath Tagore. That did not stop him from interpreting Tagore's writing with his own unique visual style as evident in Khudito Pashan, a classic by every standard, starring the legendary Soumitra Chatterjee and Arunthati Debi. Originally the story of a tax collector who moves into a haunted mansion in a small town and falls in love with a beautiful ghost, Tapan Sinha interprets the story in his own style to make a film that may look totally different from the original Tagore story, but not only maintains the original essence, but pushes the story to new dimensions. Tapan Sinha's Khudito Pashan becomes a must watch National award winning masterpiece for cineastes globally.
