For those who are not completely familiar about Bimal Roy here is a small biography about him:

When Roy came from Calcutta to Bombay in 1951 - with a group of talented professionals from Calcutta - script writer, cameraman, set designer and song writer - he found that scripts were unheard of and dialogues being written on the sets. He established his "school" of film making - Bimal Roy Productions - that delivered masterpiece after masterpiece. He was a master craftsman and also an inspiring teacher, training many excellent technicians, who went on to become famous after him.Do Bigha Zamin(1953 ), his first independent production, is a cinematic reference point. It introduced Indian cinema to the west by winning a special mention at Cannes and Karlovy Vary. Another film, the documentary-Gautama the Buddha,-won a Gold Medal at Cannes in 1954. In India, he won a Filmfare award every year that he made a film,eleven in all, a record still unbroken 43 years after his death.

His lyrical, sensitively crafted, brilliantly photographed black and white films represent the "golden age" of Indian cinema, along with the work of three other directors of the 50's - Mehboob Khan, Raj Kapoor and Guru Dutt. When he died on January 8, 1966, at the age of 55, he left behind a legacy of seventeen wonderful films (including three in his native Bengali) that Indians still cherish.
