Story


Achhut is a 1940 Indian Bollywood social film released on 1940. The film is directed by Chandulal J. Shah, produced by Chandulal J. Shah under banner named Ranjit Studios.
Promoted as a nationalist film addressing Gandhis anti-untouchability campaign, it was endorsed by Gandhi and Vallabhbhai Patel even beofor it was made. Denied access to a well reserved for the upper castes, Lakshmis (Gohar) Harijan father turns Christian while his wife prefers to remain a Hindu. Lakshmi is adopted by a rich businessman, becomes friends with his daughter Savita, completes her education and finds social acceptance in the urban upper class. When both Lakshmi and Savita fall in love with the same man, Savitas father resolves the matter by sending Lakshmi back to her impoverished Harijan family where she meets her childhood friend Ramu (Motilal) and together they lead the Harijans revolt. Lakshmi is jailed, her best friend falls ill and her boyfriend dies, but eventually the village temple is opened to all castes.
