    'The Big City' is remarkable for its feminist, or at least proto-feminist sentiments, striking for any film and any culture in 1963. 'Charulata' is a highly regarded Ray effort, but I remember finding it a bit overrated, at least compared with many of the other Ray films I had managed by then to see. I would enjoy being able to revisit it. The tidbit on Ms. Mukherjee's enjoyment of betel, and the subsequent blackening of her teeth, was especially interesting and charming to learn here.
