An update nearly two years later - the uncut Three Daughters was released in India last May as part of a box set called Tagore Stories on Film. In addition to containing the third story, the transfer is also vastly superior - clearly extensively restored, and with optional English subtitles.

The other films in the box are two more Rays, The Home and the World (1984) and his 1961 documentary on Tagore, plus Hungry Stones (Tapan Sinha, 1960), Kabuliwala (Hemen Gupta, 1961) and Four Chapters (Kumar Shahani, 1997) - plus a 20-minute short, Natir Puja, that's the only film to which Rabindranath Tagore directly contributed.

If that sounds impossibly luxurious compared with the single-disc Mr Bongo edition, the punchline is that it's more or less the same price!
