Description

    • Imported from USA.
    In this psychologically rich character study, written and directed by Satyajit Ray, Bengali film star Uttam Kumar draws on his real-world celebrity to play Arindam Mukherjee, a matinee idol on the brink of his first flop. When Mukherjee boards an overnight train to Delhi to accept an award, a journalist (Sharmila Tagore) approaches him seeking an exclusive interview, which initiates a conversation that sends the actor reeling down a path of self-examination. Seamlessly integrating rueful flashbacks and surreal dream sequences with the quietly revelatory stories of the train s other passengers, The Hero is a graceful meditation on art, fame, and regret from one of world cinema s most keenly perceptive filmmakers. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New, restored 2K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack - Interview from 2008 with actor Sharmila Tagore - New program featuring film scholar Meheli Sen - New English subtitle translation - PLUS: An essay by author Pico Iyer and a 1980 tribute to Kumar by Ray
