The forgotten legacy of Mrinal Sen

Mrinal Sen is not only one of the most respected directors in Bengal, but also one of the most political filmmakers from our country.

A picture of Mrinal Sen & Shabana Azmi is doing the rounds on social media, where the director is being presented with a Filmfare statue for Lifetime achievement. It opens up a treasure trove of memories as the director-actor duo have teamed up on films like Ek Din Achanak, Khandahar and even Genesis… where Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri fought over Azmi’s character. Mrinal Sen along with Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak was hailed as a part of the holy trinity of Bengali cinema.He is most well-known for his Calcutta trilogy.

Interview, Calcutta 71 and Padatik were all famously anti-establishment. In his 1976 film Mrigayaa, he introduced a struggling actor called Mithun Chakroborty. Sen is not only one of the most respected directors in Bengal. But also one of the most political filmmakers from India. Time to show some gratitude to the great man.
