Brilliant film on poverty. This film talks about Indian culture's religion, marriage, and a man's struggle with family.

(OK) More clean, dramatic, and same time, has an almost comic anecdote of Apu married with an unknown bride... Apu has a grear dramatic trouble, is a good man who fights with his sense of loss and responsability... and urban and rural backgrounds are so well connected/contrasted”

Living alone in a tenement above the railway, a grown Apu passes his days reading poetry, playing his wooden flute and looking for work. Although poor and without family, he remains hopeful about his future. After reuniting with a childhood friend, Apu marries the man's cousin. But marital bliss is short-lived, as a terrible tragedy awaits the newfound lovers. This is the third and final film in the renowned Apu trilogy from director Satyajit Ray.
