  • Do Aankhen Barah Haath is a 1957 Hindi film directed by V. Shantaram, who also starred in the film. It is considered one of the classics of Hindi cinema and is based on humanistic psychology. It won a Silver Bear at the 8th Berlin International Film Festival and was the first Indian film to win Golden Globe Award in the category Samuel Goldwyn Award. The film is also remembered for its song, Aye maalik tere bande hum, sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Bharat Vyas. The film was inspired by the story of an 'open prison' experiment Swatantrapur in the princely state of Aundh near Satara. Now Swatantrapur is part of Atpadi tehsil in Sangli district of Maharashtra. It was recounted by screenwriter G. D. Madgulkar to V. Shantaram. In 2005, Indiatimes Movies ranked the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films. During filming V. Shantaram fought with a bull and injured an eye, though his eyesight survived. The film was later remade in 1975 in Tamil as Pallandu Vazhga starring M.G. Ramachandran and Latha, and in 1976 as the Telugu color film Maa Daivam starring N.T. Rama Rao and Jayachitra. Wikipedia
