Made by Satyajit Ray after a five-year hiatus from filmmaking owing to failing health, Ganashatru (1990) is not considered among his better works. The film entails a strong storyline that explores the idea of religious fanaticism and greed. Nemai Ghosh who was Ray’s official photographer, and worked with him for over two decades, clicks the renowned director in a remarkable stance, on the sets of the film with his camera.
