Watch Meghe Dhaka Tara
- 2 hr 14 min
This 60s Indian drama film was directed by filmmaker Ritwik Ghatak and is based upon the popular Hindi novel The Cloud Shaped Star (the English translation of the film's title). The film is peculiar for a Bollywood film in that it is extremely toned down, somber and socially conscious, which is a stark departure from the silliness and grandeur of most Bollywood films. The plot of the film follows the life of a poverty stricken family living in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Calcutta. They face troubles, not just from their poverty, but also from the Partrition of India.
