Do Bigha Zamin Indian Movies that won at Cannes Film Festival—Part 2.

Do Bigha Zamin is a 1953 Indian Hindi-language drama film directed by Bimal Roy. Based on Rabindranath Tagore’s Bengali poem “Dui Bigha Jomi”, the film stars Balraj Sahni, and Nirupa Roy in lead roles. Known for its socialist theme, it is considered an important film in the early parallel cinema of India, and a trendsetter. 

Inspired by Italian neo-realistic cinema, Bimal Roy made Do Bigha Zameen after watching Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves (1948). Like most of Bimal Roy’s movies, art and commercial cinema merge to create a movie that is still viewed as a benchmark. It has paved the way for future cinema makers in the Indian neo-realist movement and the Indian New Wave, which began in the 1950s.

  1. Neecha Nagar(1946)

Neecha Nagar is a 1946 Indian Hindi-language film, directed by Chetan Anand, written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and Hayatullah Ansari, and produced by Rashid Anwar. It was a pioneering effort in social realism in Indian cinema and paved the way for many such parallel cinema films by other directors, many of them also written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas. It starred Chetan Anand’s wife Uma Anand, with Rafiq Ahmed, Kamini Kaushal, Murad, Rafi Peer, Hamid Butt, and Zohra Sehgal. Neecha Nagar was a Hindi film adaptation in an Indian setting of Maxim Gorky’s 1902 play The Lower Depths.

Neecha Nagar became the first Indian film to gain recognition at the Cannes Film Festival after it shared the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film (Best Film) award at the first Cannes Film Festival in 1946 with eleven of the eighteen entered feature films. It’s the only Indian film to be ever awarded a Palme d’Or. Ironically, this film was never released in India.
