The Big City is a 1963 Bengali-language Drama motion picture directed by Satyajit Ray and produced by R.d. Banshal under the banner of R.D. Banshal & Co. Calcutta in the early 1960's. Bhambal supports his wife Arati, his parents, and two children. Money is tight, so Arati goes to work. She's successful and enjoys it, but this untraditional step throws the household into chaos: her in-laws initiate a cold war of silence and disapproval. When Bhambal loses his job, her working is essential; he loses self respect, and the gulf between them widens. Arati questions whether to keep her daughter in school. At work, her friendship with Edith, a Euro-Indian who smokes, swears, and uses lipstick, brings Arati close to impertinence with her genial boss. Her job is imperiled, she acts impulsively, and who will understand her actions? Written by. The big city stars Madhabi Mukherjee, Anil Chatterjee, Haradhan Bannerjee, Jaya Bhaduri, Vicky Redwood, Sefalika Devi and Smita Sinha. The screenplay is written by Satyajit Ray which is inspired from Abataranika by Narendranath Mitra. The music was composed by Satyajit Ray. The film has a running time of 131 minutes. It was released on 27th September 1963. Distribution rights for the film were acquired by Edward Harrison.
