Shoma Chatterji wins National award for Best Book on Cinema 2002

Citation

The award for the Best Book on Cinema is shared by Shoma A. Chatterji for 'Parama and Other Outsiders: The Cinema of Aparna Sen' in English and Sharad Dutt for 'Ritu Aaye Ritu Jaye' in Hindi.

While Shoma A. Chatterji's work is a painstaking and thought-provoking study of the works of Aparna Sen with a clear focus on their socio-economic relevance and context, Sharad Dutt has written a biography of a trend-setting music director, the late Anil Biswas, whose life story encompasses not just his personal struggles and achievements but also the scenario of Hindi film music when it was at its creative best.
