Sikkim (Movie, DVD) Price: Rs.499

Sikkim is a 1971 Indian documentary about the nation of Sikkim, directed by Satyajit Ray. The documentary was commissioned by the Chogyal (King) of Sikkim at a time when he felt the sovereignty of Sikkim was under threat from both China and India. Ray's documentary is about the sovereignty of Sikkim. The film was banned by the government of India, when Sikkim merged with India in 1975. In 2000, the copyright of the film was transferred to the Art and Culture Trust of Sikkim. The ban was finally lifted by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in September 2010.

Except a screening for the Chugyal family, the film never got formally released. For many years, the film was considered to be lost and it was thought that the only surviving record of the film is a scene-by-scene written reconstruction of the film by the remaining film team members. However, in January 2003 it was reported that a good quality print has been kept by the British Film Institute. When Kolkata-based Satyajit Ray Society traced a print with the Chogyals family it was found to be damaged beyond repair, finally, a print that had made its way to London was traced and restored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2003. A restored version was shown in 2008 during a "Ray Restrospective" at the Nantes Three Continents Film Festival in France.

After the government overturned the ban, the restored copy reached the Gangtok-based Art and Culture Trust of Sikkim in September 2010, which has earlier received the prints and right for the film in 2000.

A shoddy re-production of the works of a maestro

I do not want to comment about the movie/documentary. That is not really needed. I will restrict myself to the way the the works of Satyajit Rau has been presented in this collection.

Although the packaging of this collection was quite okay, the rest was amateurish at the best. The way the contents etc are presented in the DVD containing the songs/music from Ray's movies is in very poor taste.
The quality of the DVD produced by this company(ANGEL) is always doubtful. This time also the DVDs were bad and I had to ask Flipkart for a replacement which they did promptly. Full marks to Flipkar...

Go for this one if you are an avid fan of Satyajit Ray and can tolerate the shoddy presentation.

A big dissapointment

Satyajit Ray started the documentary well enough, displaying Sikkim on the map and a short introduction on the geological formation of the himmalayas mountain range. Then everything falls apart. There is no mention of either historical or cultural developments in the state. There is no clear notion of economy or in the direction the state is heading. If the objective is to present Sikkim from the point of a traveller, Ray failed in this respect too. All you get is some random shots of flowers and a Buddhist procession and ritual dance. Oh! There is a mention of Sikkim's religious tolerance... ()

There is a mention of Sikkim's religious tolerance and almost free child education. But the only thing Ray was really interested in showing the great gap exists between the rich and poor by simple juxtaposition of shots which show the food habits of who have and who have not. The packaging of Angel Video is poor as usual.

Excellent documentary

It's one of the great documentary of Ray. Camera and contrast of Editing is the asset of this docu. There is an unuttered fact in every scene that easily you can get.The last is so poetic and cinematically marvelous.The voice over and script is so supportive with the whole documentary and please notice the ability to framing the expression of Human being. Simply superb.

Portrayal of Sikkim at its best

Satyajit Ray's innate ability to capture frames which are evergreen - to summarize it in a line.

If one has traveled to the places covered in the documentary, then the play backed with the wonderful narration is a reminiscence along with added learning. Hats off to the legend's power of observation.

This is a piece of art, and makes me even more hungry to see the original sometime, if possible.
