Synopsis

The comic, tragic and heartrending saga of Ratan Kumar Chaudhary, who leaves his village, aging mom and seriously ill sister, to obtain employment in Calcutta, only to end up in a tiny tenement apartment full of other unemployed youths.

Our take

A Bimal Roy gem from the 1950s with an enduring socially relevant theme, Naukri shines for its optimism in humanity that survives despite the grim circumstances. This film features a moving and understated performance by Kishore Kumar as a young man oscillating between hope and despair.
