Early life and background[edit] Soumitra was born in Mirjapur Street, a locality in Calcutta
Calcutta
of West Bengal, in 1935. The first ten years of his early life past in Krishnanagar in the district of Nadia in West Bengal, the town under the influence of playwright Dwijendralal Ray, also from Krishnanagar, had a flourishing theatre culture, with numerous small theatre groups. His grandfather was the president of one such group, while his father though lawyer by profession, later a government worker and also worked as an amateur actor. He started acting in school plays. Encouraged by the praise he received for his acting, gradually his interest in theatre grew with passing years, thus in late school years, he was taking acting seriously.[5] He was a very close friend of famous theatre personality, Mrityunjay Sil who is often regarded as the person due to which Soumitra is a star.[6] Soumitra and his family moved to Howrah where he studied in the Howrah Zilla School and Calcutta
Calcutta
during his early years. Soumitra graduated from the City College, Kolkata
City College, Kolkata
with honours in Bengali literature, as a graduating student of the University of Calcutta.[6] He has lived for a number of years in Calcutta
Calcutta
in Satyajit Ray's old apartment 3-lake temple road. He studied for his M.A. in Bengali from the University of Calcutta. While still a student, he learnt acting under noted actor-director of Bengali theatre
Bengali theatre
Ahindra Choudhury.[6] However a turning point came when in the final year of college he saw a play by Sisir Bhaduri, theatre director and the doyen of Bengali theatre. The play not only set a standard for acting for him, but also help makeup his mind to become an actor. He managed to meet Bhaduri, through his friend's mother, actress Shefalika Putul. Though, he met Bhaduri, towards the end of his career, when his theatre had closed, nevertheless over the next three years, till Bhaduri's death in 1959, Chatterjee made him a mentor, and learnt the craft of acting through their regular interactions.[5][7][8] He even appeared in a small role in one of Bhaduri's productions. [9][10] Subsequently, he started his career working in All India
India
Radio as an announcer,[9] while he was still there he started pursuing a career in films. He came in touch with Ray during the casting for Aparajito (1956), who was looking for new faces. Ray thought he had the right look, however found him, age 20, and just out of college, too old for the role of adolescent Apu. Ray remembered him and offered him the role of adult Apu two years later. [11][12][9] Meanwhile, he was rejected in his screen test for Bengali film, Nilachale Mahaprabhu (1957) directed by Kartik Chattopadhyay.[8] Work with Satyajit Ray: 1959–1990[edit] Chatterjee had gone on the sets of Ray's fourth film, Jalsaghar
Jalsaghar
(1958) to watch the shoot. He was still unaware that he had been already been selected for the title role of Apu trilogy. That day, while he was leaving the sets, Ray called him over and introduced him to actor Chhabi Biswas as "..This is Soumitra Chattopadhyay; he's playing Apu in my next film Apur Sansar" leaving him much surprised.[13] Despite being selected, as a debutant actor, Chatterjee was nevertheless unsure for his career choice and especially his looks, as he didn't consider himself photogenic. However, on 9 August 1958, when the first shot of the film was given an okay in one take, he realized he had found his vocation.[8] Thus Soumitra's film debut came in 1959 in Satyajit Ray's The World of Apu
The World of Apu
(Apur Sansar). In fact Ray believed with a beard Chatterjee looked like young poet laureate Tagore.[14] Soumitra would eventually collaborate with Ray on fourteen films. His centrality to Ray's work is akin to other key collaborations in the history of cinema — Mifune and Kurosawa, Mastroianni and Fellini, De Niro and Scorsese, DiCaprio and Scorsese, Max von Sydow and Ingmar Bergman, Jerzy Stuhr and Kieślowski.[15] After Apur Sansar, he also worked with Sharmila Tagore
Tagore
in a number of Ray films, apart from working with leading star actor of the period, Uttam Kumar with whom he has often been compared, in eight films.[16][17] Chatterjee was cast in diverse roles by Ray and some of the stories and screenplays that Ray wrote were said to be written with him in mind. Soumitra featured as Feluda/Pradosh Chandra Mitter, the famous private investigator from Calcutta
Calcutta
in Ray's Feluda
Feluda
series of books, in two films in the 1970s Sonar Kella
Sonar Kella
(1974) and Joi Baba Felunath (1979). These two films were the first film series made for Feluda
Feluda
and are considered as the Feluda
Feluda
original film series. He was the first person who portrayed the iconic Bengali sleuth Feluda. Satyajit Ray made some illustrations of Feluda
Feluda
based on Soumitra's body figure and look in the 1970s Feluda
Feluda
books. After him Sabyasachi Chakrabarty
Sabyasachi Chakrabarty
took the role of the iconic Bengali hero Feluda
Feluda
in the mid-1990s. Ghare Baire
Ghare Baire
(1984), an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore's novel of the same name and one of Ray's major ventures of the 1980s, featured Chatterjee in a leading role in the character of a radical revolutionary in a love triangle with his friend's wife. These roles showcased Chatterjee's versatility in playing diverse characters, especially in an urban setting. In Shakha Proshakha
Shakha Proshakha
(1990), Ray's second last film, Chatterjee turns out a moving performance in the role of a mentally handicapped son of an aging patriarch on his deathbed and the only source of his father's solace, as his siblings squabble. Soumitra had approached Satyajit Ray
Satyajit Ray
to suggest a name for a little magazine founded by Soumitra and Nirmalya Acharya in 1961. Satyajit Ray had named the magazine Ekkhon (Now), he designed the inaugural cover page and illustrated the cover pages regularly even after Soumitra had stopped editing the magazine. Nirmalya continued editing the magazine, and several of Ray's scripts were published in the magazine. [18] Other works[edit] Besides working with Ray, Soumitra excelled in collaborations with other well-known Bengali directors such as Mrinal Sen
Mrinal Sen
and Tapan Sinha. He earned critical acclaim for his role of an impostor in Mrinal Sen's Akash Kusum (1965). He was equally confident in playing the swashbuckling horse-riding villain in Tapan Sinha's Jhinder Bandi (1961) giving the legendary Uttam Kumar
Uttam Kumar
a tough challenge. In Teen Bhubaner Pare (1969), he again shared the screen with the Tanuja, and his flamboyant and peppy way of romance. Besides films, Chatterjee has continued acting in Kolkata-based Bengali theatre, and even published over 12 poetry books.[19] Entering the 1980s and 1990s, he started working with contemporary directors, like Goutam Ghose, Aparna Sen, Anjan Das
Anjan Das
and Rituparno Ghosh, and even acted on television. In 1986, he played the role of a swimming coach in film Kony (1986) directed by Saroj Dey, who was part of the film collective Agragami. The film is about a young girl from a slum, who wants to become a swimmer.[17] At the 32nd National Film Awards, the film won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment .[20] Later in a 2012 interview, he called Kony one of the best films of his career. He even recalled using film's catch-phrase "Fight-Koni-fight" in hard times, as a chant to himself to lift his "aging spirits". The phrase had become popular with middle-class Bengalis
Bengalis
at the time.[17] Theatre[edit] He replaced Mrityunjay Sil as the lead artist in 1958. Mrityunjay Sil was at the peak of his theatre career at that time. But due to personal issues he suggested his friend, Soumitra's name. Mrityunjay Sil is often credited to be one of the few people to have helped Soumitra.[6] But he soon left his job. After a two-decade long busy career as a leading man of Bengali cinema, he returned to theatre in 1978, with his production Naam Jiban, staged at Biswarupa Theatre in Kolkata. This led to other plays like Rajkumar (1982), Phera (1987), Nilkantha (1988), Ghatak Biday (1990) and Nyaymurti (1996), beside notable plays like Tiktiki (1995), an adaptation of Sleuth and Homapakhi (2006). Besides acting, he has written and directed several plays, translated a few and also branched out to poetry reading in recent decades.[6] Since November 2010, he has been regularly performing in the title role of the play Raja Lear directed by Suman Mukhopadhyay, a play based on King Lear
King Lear
by William Shakespeare.[17] Soumitra has received widespread critical and popular accolades for his acting in the play. Soumitra Chatterjee
Soumitra Chatterjee
is also well known for his poetry recitation. Recitation is something that was imbibed in him since childhood by his Parents. One such popular recitation of his is "Shesher Kobita" by Rabindranath Tagore. Awards and recognitions[edit] Soumitra has received the 'Officier des Arts et Metiers', the highest award for arts given by the French government, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Italy. He turned down the honorary Padma Shri award from the Indian government in the 1970s[citation needed]; in 2004, he accepted the prestigious Padma Bhushan
Padma Bhushan
award from the President of India.[21] He has been the subject of a full-length documentary named Gaach by French film director Catherine Berge. In 1998, he was awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award
Sangeet Natak Akademi Award
given by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, India's National Academy of Music, Dance & Drama.[22] Incidentally, besides getting 8 times BFJA - Best Actor Awards[23] and international recognition for his acting prowess, Chatterjee never won a National Film Award for acting in the early part of his career, which established his reputation as an actor, working with directors like Satyajit Ray, Tapan Sinha or Mirinal. Thus, over the years, he has been vocal about his feelings of disappointment and alleging bias in the National Film Awards committee's towards awarding popular and mainstream cinema.[5][7] Thus, in a gesture of protest against, he turned down the 2001 Special
Special
Jury Award for Dekha directed by Goutam Ghose. Later in an interview he stated "..the National Film Awards, overlooked my performances in several powerful roles...When I did Kony, Shashi Kapoor
Shashi Kapoor
was adjudged the best actor. Anil Kapoor
Anil Kapoor
was feted (Best Actor) for Pukar while Dekha was awarded a 'consolation' prize".[7][24] However, after receiving the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian honour given by Government of India
India
in 2004, he changed his viewpoint towards awards, and stated "Now (after Padma Bhushan) I feel I don't have the right to hurt my viewers by rejecting an award."[7] A few years later, on 9 June 2008, he was awarded the 2007 National Film Award for Best Actor for Podokkhep
Podokkhep
(Footsteps) (2006),[25] which he accepted though stating "after decades of acting, I do not attach too much value to it".[26] In 2010, he won Best Supporting Actor at 54th Asia-Pacific Film Festival for his role in Angshumaner Chhobi
Angshumaner Chhobi
(2009).[27] In 2012, he was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, India's highest award in cinema given annually by the Government of India
India
for lifetime contribution to Indian cinema.[16][19] In 2014, he received the introductory Filmfare Awards East for Best Male Actor (Critics) for his role in Rupkatha Noy.[28] & also he won Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award – South (1994)[29] Actor Soumitra Chatterjee, 82, will be honoured with France’s highest civilian award, Legion of Honor. The award will be presented to the Kolkata-based actor by the Ambassador of France
France
to India
India
Alexandre Ziegler. Talking about the honour, Chatterjee said, “At this age, awards do not hold a great attraction. But I should say this award is slightly special as it comes from a country that is known for its cultural richness and artistic excellence. Civilian Award[edit]
