Mother India
Mother India is a 1957 Hindi film written and directed by Meh**** Khan and stars Nargis, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar and Raj Kumar. The epic film is a remake of Meh**** Khan's earlier film Aurat. It is also listed among the only two Hindi films in the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list. The film ranks among the all-time Indian box office hits. The film was India's first submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1958, and was chosen as one of the five nominations for the category. The film came close to winning the award, but eventually lost to Federico Fellini's Nights of Cabiria by a single vote.

Do Bigha Zamin
'Do Bigha Zamin' is a 1953 film, directed by Bengali film director Bimal Roy and stars Balraj Sahni and Nirupa Roy in lead roles. Known for its socialist theme, the film is a landmark in early parallel cinema and is considered a trend setter. Like most of movies by Bimal Roy, art and commercial cinema are merged to create a movie that is still looked upon as a benchmark and paved way for future cinema makers in the Indian neo-realist movement and the Indian New Wave, which began in the 1950s.

Pyaasa
Pyaasa is a 1957 Indian film produced and directed by Guru Dutt. The film tells the story of struggling poet trying to make his works known in post-independence India. Waheeda Rehman in her first major leading role in Hindi cinema, a ********** with a heart of gold, eventually helps him get his poems published. With the commercial success of thrillers like Baazi, Jaal, Aar Paar and C.I.D. as well as comedies like Mr. & Mrs. '55, Guru Dutt and his studio were financially secure and established.
