Those who have not seen this man then they are unfortunate. Uttam Kumar was especially adored for his effortless naturalism in front of the camera.. Often hailed as the one-man industry, he dominated Bengali cinema for three decades until his death. His real name was Arun kumar Chatterjee.I have watched movies of great film personality but Uttam Kumar stands out tall amongst them.He would have been 86 years one month tomorrow.

  1. "His real name was Arun kumar Chatterjee- a Brahmin."

    I wonder how the words "a Brahmin" matter in your description of his talent. Is his caste a qualifying factor? Or do you attribute his entire talent to him being a Brahmin?
