Bhupati’s frequent hyperbole meets its paradoxical other in an unexpected form of ornamentation in Charulata: silence. The silent body works as an especially expressive topography in Ray’s films. Gestures, unaccompanied by words, and silence, as much as words, work as language—and, as a sign of the inadequacy of language—in these texts. The linguistic impasse is expressed in the range of emotional registers on Madhabi Mukherjee’s face—an unspoken, but obviously articulated, series of emotions.
