Screen Icons: Madhabi Mukherjee

An arthouse icon who has starred in films that have inspired acclaimed directors such as Wes Anderson and Akira Kurosawa, Madhabi Mukherjee's inimitable screen presence is as dazzling as it is timeless.

Fully self-taught, Madhabi radiated elegance, depth and subtle complexities across all her characters. Be it the reticent ennui of a lonely housewife, or the scathing, all-appraising eye of a scorned lover, Madhabi embodied a kaleidoscopic range of feminine power across age and class -- often without needing to utter a single word.

Her three-year collaboration with celebrated director Satyajit Ray between 1963 - 65 has been noted as one of the most iconic and critically acclaimed runs in cinema history, earning multiple nods from the Berlinale, Venice Film Festival, and other prestigious festivals and venues.

This July, ArtScience Cinema is proud to present these three historic titles – Charulata, Mahanagar (The Big City) and Kapurush (The Coward) - all in conjunction with the exhibition Goddess: Brave. Bold. Beautiful. For more information on related cinema programmes, click here.
