dc.description.abstract During the 19th century, Bengal has gone through a transition from tradition to modernity. As it was under the colonial power , many aspects of the British Raj and the ideas of Bengali Renaissance act as the major causes behind this change. Satyajit Ray, the notable film maker of the subcontinent has attentively captured the quintessential essence of the Bengali life. As his films are regarded as historical documents, therefore in my research, I tried to look at the transition through his films. This paper is an attempt to link the shift and its impact on the individual and the society . The first chapter narrates the impact of Western education and how it collides with the traditional virtues. The second chapter portrays the socio-economic change which is marked by the emergence of Bourgeoisie class, replacing the feudal system . The last chapter is a love triangle that presents the consequences of Bengali Renaissance , which has brought a noticeable change in Bengali lifestyle. While focusing on these issues I have linked them with the historical context to capture the transition from tradition to modernity. en_US
