The final moments of his life are heart wrenching to say the least. The way he loses everything - self included. Its painful to see him wasting his life and coming to this unfortunate end.
Kudos to satyajit ray to depict it in such a lively way.
Total amazing work.
You even have a live performance by the great Begum Akhtar and a full bloom kathak performance in the end.
Its a must watch for all classic movie lovers.
Totally engrossing and an eye opener of sorts.
