Charulata is widely considered to be director Ray's most accomplished film. Ray himself acknowledged the film as the one "which has the least defects." Set in Victorian India, the film is centered around Charulata, an intelligent and beautiful wife who is ignored by her husband and whose interests in art, literature and poetry are suppressed by the traditions of society.
