Mrinal Sen Complete Bio & Career

Mr Sen So, having finished high school, he left his home to study in Calcutta. He studied physics at a renowned Scottish Church College and graduated from Calcutta University. He was part of the cultural wings of the Communist Party of India as a student. In 1955 he made his first feature film, Raat Bhore. The film was a massive disappointment. 
His next film, Neel Akasher Neechey, was recognized locally by him, his third film, Baishey Shravan (the day Rabindranath Tagore passed away), was the first film to expose him internationally. After making five more films, he made a film with a budget for shoelaces provided by the Government of India. This film, Bouvain Shoum, finally founded him as a major domestic and foreign filmmaker. Bhuvan Shome also started the movie movement " New Cinema " in India. He was awarded numerous international awards during this period. The audience will take part in the process of developing the plot in many of Sen's subsequent films.
