Satyajit Ray Birth Anniversary

Pikoo (1980), a 26-minute short Satyajit Ray made for French television, remains one of Ray’s least watched films in India. Even the centenary of the filmmaker’s birth last year did not generate much enthusiasm for the film, although decent prints of the movie are now widely available. Does Pikoo really merit this neglect? If not, what explains it? Ray’s birthday on May 2 is as good a time as any to consider this question, because it is safe to assume that while a lot of his movies will get watched again and discussed on this day, Pikoo will hardly be missed.
