The second part of Ray’s famed trilogy follows Apu to the city where his father finds him a job to support his family. Declaring himself a dramatist fearless in confronting the darker side of adolescence, Ray cinematically explores the impact of death as well as the clash between spiritual duty and secular enticement as he examines the experience of ordinary people struggling to survive.
