Write up  

Satyajith Ray took pains to shoot the scene with a tiger for his film “Goopy Gyne Bhaga Byne”. Prepare a write up describing the difficulties Ray experienced in shooting the scene. 

Satyajiht Ray wanted to shoot his film Goopy Gyne Bhaga Byne” with a trained tiger.  He approached the bharath circus to arrange a tiger to use in his film. The company was visiting Calcutta then. He sought the permission of the manager and he gave permission to use it. Then they made arrangements with the ringmaster Mr. Thorat to bring the tiger.  

Ray and his team found a suitable bamboo grove in Notun Gram, a small village. Mr. Thorat reached the village with two well fed tigers. It was brought in the lorry specially designed to bring them. The Camera was placed on the tripod for shooting the scene. The two characters were freezing seeing the ferocious tiger.  He faced greater challenges to shoot the film with the tiger. He understood that it was difficult to shoot the film with a tiger. It has to play a  dominant role in the film. Safety was another big hurdle in front of him. Ray was doubtful of the success of film.  

He was worried and concerned about the safety of the people. There was a lot of panic and commotion. The tiger had to come out of a thick grove, walk around for some time. Look at the camera and go back. When the door was opened, the tiger sprang out and began to jump with big steps. When the tiger calmed down, they started taking the shots. Ray and team returned to Calcutta and they examined the camera.  But they were shocked to see that shots were not clear. Camera did not work properly time and the shots were dark. So the scenes had to be taken again. It was a difficult task for them. They found another bamboo grove near Calcutta at Boral. Once again the lorry arrived with a tiger. The whole village came to witness the shooting. He had a tough time to manage the crowd. Nobody listened to their warning. He was worried about the success of the shooting.  When the tiger was released from the cage, it emerged with a loud roar and charged at the villagers. It caused a big commotion and trouble. The people disappeared in no time. Because the whole village had come to watch the shooting. Nothing unfortunate happened. It was a big relief as everything ended in great success.

 Dear Syam, 
 How are you? Hope you are fine. I am busy with my new project. It is my new film ‘Goopy Gyne, Bagha Byne’. It is progressing well. I had a tough time with a ‘tiger scene in the film last week. There was an important scene which takes place in a forest where two characters see a tiger. I had to arrange a trained tiger to shoot the film.  We searched everywhere for the tiger. It was a difficult task to get it. We approached the Bharath Circus to obtain the tiger.  We hired a tiger for two hours. When the tiger was released from the cage, the tiger emerged with loud roar and charged at the crowd. We had to shoot the scene again as our camera failed to work. All the arrangements were made again. The attempt was quite successful.  Hope to meet you soon. 

With love
