The Song of Apu.

Let me see his face properly.

What a little darling!

I am not in touch with Subir

all that much today.

But I think the last time...

I met him was...

when a foreigner came to

take our photographs.

We had gone to Boral.

That's when I met him.

The entire thing

was organized by...

Mr. Nemai Ghosh,

Ray's still photographer.

Filmmaker Bo Vanders

had come from Brussels

to make a documentary on me.

They had "Pather Panchali's"

Apu and Durga in their script.

They were looking for Apu.

I told them...

of his ancestral home near

'Wireless Park (Kudghat Tollygunge).

That is where he lives now.

They did find him there.

And... This is Subir.

He played good football. I don't

know why he didn't continue!

Dada(brother) is leaving for

Dhanbad tomorrow. He found a job.

Father is not very well either.

How can I possibly leave

town to play a match?


give up too soon.

Once you're off, Sujoy and

Alok will get into the team.

What else can I do?

When you go, I can stay

over at your place.

Moloy, you're making it

look like a World Cup match!

You're in form this season.

Manna says the Mohanbagan Club

will absorb you.

Mohanbagan? Me??-

I swear, he said so!


East Bengal Club.

If I play at all.

German Refugee Team?

You are the typical

Ghoti (orthodox townsman).

We're refugees. So is our team.

We score 3 for 0 in the league.

That's an accident.

An accident, is it?

Heard of anyone getting

allergies for eating Hilsa?

No.- - Happens with prawns!

Let's go.

I've committed a blunder.

Should've asked Pram od to give

my proxy at attendance!

He's not very friendly with...

The opposite lane.

Third house on the right.

Second floor.

But he's a very cranky fellow.

Watch out!

'Cranky', or short-tempered?

You'll know when

you see him. Go on.

Why don't you say so?

Then I won't write my exam!

That's not what I meant.

You always misunderstand.

I misunderstand? Always?

You keep interrupting my study.

And my exams are on Monday!

You run out of turmeric, oil...

Can't you ask me to get them all at once?

I won't go out after this. -

Fine, then I'll go.

A young lad will sit

at home like a king...

and the old mother will

work like a slave!

Now you're getting it wrong.

Did I say I won't go?
