2. Saat Pake Bandha (1963)

Soumitra Chatterjee films

Directed by Ajoy Kar, this film was based on an Ashutosh Mukhopadhyay novel. Many consider Saat Pake Bandha among the finest Soumitra Chatterjee films. He plays an average middle-class man and was paired opposite Suchitra Sen for the first time. Legend has it, the actor was so convincing in bringing out the frailties of the not-so-successful professor Sukhendu that many in the audience cried, when the couple was about to be separated. The film was a major box office hit and helped Soumitra cement his place as a leading actor in mainstream cinema.
