Chetan Anand directs this Indian Peoples' Theatre Association-funded, expressionist look at social injustice in rural India. The film centers on a fantastically wealthy and capacious landlord who lives in a palatial estate high up on a mountain while the poor toil and starve in the valley below. The villagers' hatred for the landlord is inflamed further by the fact that his sewage is dumped directly into the village -- spreading a variety of diseases. Fortunately, the landlord dies a terrifically painful death thanks to a drawn out series of heart attacks. This film was Ravi Shankar's debut as a film composer.
