Chetan Anands 2nd film (after Neecha Nagar, 1946), launching Navketan, continues his engagement with classic Soviet literature, although a Filimindia review suggested the film was based on the Henry Koster-Danny Kaye version (1949) of Gogols play. The journalist Kapur (Dev Anand) comes to a village run by corrupt politicians led by the village tehsildar (Kanhaiyalal). They mistake him for a government inspector and treat him like a VIP. The expose of rural politics is intercut with a love story between Kapur and the tehsildars sister Bimala (Suraiya). The film sbstantially determined the style, and the key unit, characteristic of Navketan,s 50s productions. [Source: Encyclopaedia of Indian Cinema] Check out this page for more updates on Afsar.
