Shambhu, a Bengali farmer, is overjoyed when the rains spell happiness for his community. But his joy is short-lived as the landowner demands his land back to build a factory. Given three months to repay his debts, Shambhu leaves for Kolkata in the hope of making enough money to keep his land.

MUBI's take

A heart-wrenching survival story of a farming family, Bimal Roy’s Do Bigha Zamin poetically upholds the virtue of living by ethics despite morally challenging circumstances. Evocative performances by the legends Balraj Sahni and Nirupa Roy make the struggles of the protagonists extremely palpable.
