[54 min; 1961; b/w; English]
A film by Satyajit Ray

The documentary was made to celebrate Tagore's birth centenary in May 1961. Ray was conscious that he was making an official portrait of India's celebrated poet and hence the film does not include any controversial aspects of Tagore's life. However, it is far from being a propaganda film. The film comprises dramatized episodes from the poet's life and archived images and documents.
