Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Two Daughters, a two-part film based on short stories by Rabindranath Tagore, is so filled with the basic stuff of humanity that with minor changes of script it could have been made in rural Louisiana."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"Each exemplifies, in its modest way, the quiet wisdom and the subtle craftsmanship of [Ray's] films."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Two modest but beautifully shot stories."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Ray at his best."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Satyajit Ray's 1961 film displays his customary limpid realism and penetrating sense of character."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"[Ray] delivers two beautifully textured tales of a young woman's discovery of love and affection, capturing the transition between childhood and adulthood."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The script, the direction and the music, all created by Mr. Ray, make a blend of poetic creation that is almost majestic."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Gracefully shot, it's an amusing film that's imbued with Ray's generous humanity."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"These are delicate stories, beguilingly educative about the lives of others."
