  • Neecha Nagar is a 1946 Hindi film directed by Chetan Anand. Written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas, 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 written by Abbas. It starred Chetan Anand's wife Uma Anand, Rafiq Ahmed, Kamini Kaushal, Rafi Peer and Zohra Sehgal. Neecha Nagar became the first Indian film to gain international recognition, after it shared the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film award at the first Cannes Film Festival in 1946.
