Awaara

Directed by Raj Kapoor • 1951 • India
Starring Raj Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor, Nargis

This landmark of Bollywood cinema employs an intoxicating blend of social realism, romance, and melodrama to tell the story of a young thief (director-producer Raj Kapoor) who attempts to reform himself for the love of a woman (Nargis) whose guardian (Prithviraj Kapoor) is, unbeknownst to him, his estranged father.
