The Big City ( Mahanagar) - Rescheduled to Saturday 31st Aug

Rescheduled to Saturday.. hopefully more convenient for others

For me Personally, watching a Satyajit Ray film makes me feel sad, because it reminds me of how many things are wrong or sad in India.. but probably that's credit to his film making that connects so well emotionally.. I dread seeing this film too, but I find him a very interesting director..especially after seeing 'Days and Nights in the forest' in 2004in London on my first visit to the UK

About 'The Big City'

A woman's place is with her cooking pots: that is the belief of Subrata Mazumdar, a young bank clerk struggling to support his entire extended family on a meagre salary. He's horrified when his wife Arati offers to help by going out to work as a 'salesgirl'.

Satyajit Ray's wonderfully enjoyable portrait of mid-50s Calcutta displays warmth, wit and genuine insight into its large, multi-generational cast of characters, including Arati's conservative old father-in-law, her studious teenage sister-in-law, and her benevolently despotic boss.

    I would have liked to go but didn't look at this page until this afternoon so I'm too late!

    Hope you enjoy the film.

    I think Sat will be difficult so Sun suits me. The talk will be about 2pmish if before film.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
