Neecha Nagar - The only Bollywood movie to win Palme d`Or Cannes Film Festival

First Bollywood film to won the best film award at Cannes film festival 

Directed by Chetan Anand and produced by India Pictures, ‘Neecha Nagar’ is the first and only Indian film to win the Palme d`Or Cannes Film Festival. 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, 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 (Best Film) award at the first Cannes Film Festival in 1946.
