From a short story by Rabindranath Tagore and with music by Ravi Shankar, master director Tapan Sinha's early classic was shown at the Berlin International Film Festival, and is fondly remembered by Indians as a tender, moving work of humanism. Afghan fruit seller Rhemat befriends a six-year-old girl, Minie, in Calcutta, because she reminds him of his own daughter. An accidental stabbing then sees him imprisoned for eight years - but when he's released, he's determined to find the girl. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
