Answer to 129 – Krishnadevaraya and his queens – Chinna Devi and Tirumala Devi at the Tirupati temple.
What connects these two films?
Munshi Premchand (second pic is from Shatranj Kay Khiladi – based on a story by Premchand)
Munshi Premchand’s stories Oka Oori Katha and Shatranj Ke Khilari are made into films by Mrinal Sen and Satyajit Ray respectively.
When i was in Coimbatore…. i hada lot of time on my hands.My friend Thomas Masun told me to stop watching Jenna Jameson and start watching `ort films’ by Mrinal Sen uncle and Satyajit Ray uncle to improve my mind.Thats how i know that the 1st film is Oka Oorie Katha ( directed by Mrinal Sen ) and the 2nd Shatranj Ke Khiladi by Ray both of which are based on stories by Munshi Premchand.The connect is Munshi Premchand
The movies :
Shatranj ke khiladi
The directors composed the music for both these movies (BV Karanth and Satyajit Ray respectively)
The connect is Satyajit Ray
Munshi Premchand – Oka Oori Katha and Shatranj Ke Khilari
Either might be directed by Rai or Based on Munshi Premchand novel
the second picture definitely is Saeed Jaffrey in Shatranj Ki Khilari so i go with the guess that both these two movies were the only non-bengali feature films of Satyajit Ray..
First picture is a still from ‘Pather Panchali’ (his first feature film) and the second one is a still from ‘Shatranj ke Khiladi’ (his first feature film in a language other than Bengali).
Munshi Premchand. Writer of Script for both movies
MV vasudeva rao’s role in Chomana dudi won the national award of which Satyajit ray was a jury member.
