Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray's first film Pather Panchali was shot for three years. He even struggled with the film's funding for a long time as he was determined on not changing any part of the story or perspective to the whims of a producer.

After the famous Apu Trilogy, Satyajit Ray experimented with genres. He went on to make films on the British Raj period, various documentaries including one on Rabindranath Tagore and even comedies like Mahapurush.
