Today is birth anniversary of one of the great filmmakers of India..Bimal Roy!
'Do Bigha Zameen' (1953)..Bimalda's neo-realism!

Bimalda's cinema had a strong impact of Italian neo-realism! Particularly his 'Do Bigha Zameen' (1953) inspired from Vittorio De Sica's 'Bicycle Thieves' (1948).
Vyjayanthimala, Dilip Kumar & Suchitra Sen in 'Devdas' (1955).

Then he always handled social subjects in his films like.. 'Parineeta' (1953), 'Biraj Bahu' (1954), 'Sujata' (1959) & 'Bandini' (1963).

He also gave sensitive treatment to romantic subjects in his films like 'Devdas' (1955) & 'Madhumati' (1958).

Bimalda won many which includes 11 time 'Filmfare' & 6 time National awards and one prize in 'Cannes Film Festival'! In 1959 he was a member of Jury in 1st Moscow International Film Festival'!

Tribute to Bimalda!!
