|DVD Box - The Apu Trilogy|
Aparajito continues where Pather Panchali left off. Apu is in the city with his parents living in relative poverty. His father is barely scraping together money to let the family live on, his mother is being hit on by the man living upstairs and Apu is just happily enjoying company of children his own age.
It continues in the same slow, plodding pace of the first film, which I found made it easier to get straight back into watching it, having only watched the first one yesterday.
A much easier film to get straight into, but I would recommend watching Pather Panchali first so that you understand the background story first.
Highly emotional, down-to-earth tale of Indian life.
