Bhuvan Shome is a 1969 Hindi film directed by Mrinal Sen. Based on a story by Balai Chandra Mukhopadhyay, this film is considered a landmark in the Modern Indian Cinema. This film is one of the earliest attempts at what came to be known as art house or new wave cinema in India.

Bhuvan Shome is an upright and disciplinarian Bengali officer in the Railways in the 1940s. A lonely widower and in his 50s, Mr Shome is so strict that he has even dismissed his son from his job when he went on a leave without information. Naturally his subordinates live in a mortal fear of him and curse him behind his back. Shome is proud of his reputation and is fierce in protecting it. However, a time comes when even someone like Shome starts getting bored of his regimental life. Seeking escape in a holiday he sets off on a bird hunting trip to a remote corner of Gujarat. Little does he realize that this rejuvenation adventure would introduce him to a world poles apart and that he would find it the most joyous experience of his life. His new world consists of simple, uninitiated village folks, a bullock-cart drive along long mud tracks, marauding buffalo and Gauri. In Gauri, Shome finds a fresh, throbbing pulse in a dying world.

Sridevi, whose irresistible cocktail of indigenous oomph and gift for connecting with the audience filled up cavernous single-screens and took her to the pinnacle of popularity in the Hindi, Telugu and Tamil film industries, died in Dubai on Saturday night. She was 54, reports said. Pure gold at the box office, Sridevi could also turn out sensitive performances – Moondrum Pirai (Sadma in Hindi), Lamhe and, more lately, English Vinglish to name just three – with equal felicity and feel.
