‘Uttarayan’ has great songs and scenes, and above all a wonderful philosophy in its story. The acting and script are great, too; and some of the dialogues are especially awesome. Uttam Kumar and Supriya Devi looked an attrative couple, and Sabitri’s character was the ultimate definition of holiness, sanctity, and sacrifice. She was splendid, though some of the scenes may look a  bit overacted to the modern audience, esp. when we are much used to behavioral acting.

A classic film for all times!
