Two (1964 film)

Two A Film Fable is a 1964 blackandwhite short film directed by an Indian director Satyajit Ray. The film was made under the banner of Esso World Theater at the request of a nonprofit American public broadcasting television, PBS. It was made as part of a trilogy of short films from India. The other two films in the trilogy featured Indian Sitar player, Pandit Ravi Shankar and a Ballet troupe from Mumbai, then known as Bombay. Ray, who worked prominently for Bengali cinema, was requested to make a film in English language with a Bengali setting, however Ray being an admirer of silent film decided to make a film without any dialogue as a tribute to the genre.

While playing, he overhears a sound and curiously overlooks the window to see a slum kid playing a flute. In order to show his toys, rich kid takes out his toy trumpet to make loud sound. Street kid then goes back to his hut and starts playing a small drum to which rich kid shows his batterypowered drum.
