4. Grihadaha (1967); Dir: Subodh Mitra
I choose this over other Uttam-Suchitra films, including Harano Sur, primarily because of the complexities that underline the relationship here. The characters are not starry-eyed lovers in the way they are in the other films starring the two. Based on a novel by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee, the film was produced by Uttam Kumar – and he gives a glimpse of his ability to set aside star egos, letting Pradip Kumar hog the limelight and walk away with the accolades in what is his finest hour as an actor.
