Do Aankhen Barah Haath (Hindi: दो आँखें बारह हाथ, English: Two Eyes, Twelve Hands) is a 1957 Hindi film directed by the Indian film director V. Shantaram, who also starred in the film. It is considered one of the classics of Hindi cinema and is based on humanistic psychology. It won a Silver Bear at the 8th Berlin International Film Festival and it was the first Indian film to win a Golden Globe Award. The film is also remembered for its theme song, Aye maalik tere bande hum, sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Bharat Vyas. The film was inspired by the story of an 'open prison' experiment Swatantrapur in the princely state of Aundh near Satara. Now Swatantrapur is part of Atpadi tehsil in Sangli district of Maharashtra. It was recounted by screenwriter G. D. Madgulkar to V. Shantaram.[1] In 2005, Indiatimes Movies ranked the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[2] During the filming V. Shantaram battled with a bull and he hurt his one eye during the stunt, though his eyesight survived.[3] The film was later remade in 1975 in Tamil as Pallandu Vazhga starring M.G. Ramachandran and Latha, and in 1976 as the Telugu color film Maa Daivam starring N.T. Rama Rao and Jayachitra. Contents

[edit] Plot
The film portrays a young jail warden, Adinath, who rehabilitates six deadly prisoners released on parole into persons of virtue. He takes these notorious, often surly, murderers and makes them work hard with him on a dilapidated country farm, rehabilitating them through hard work and kindly guidance as they eventually produce a great harvest. The film ends with the death of the warden at the hands of the minions of a corrupt enemy who wants no competition, in the profitable market he controls. This film takes the viewers through several scenes that set a strong moral lesson that through hard work, dedication and concentration a person can accomplish anything. Also this film explains that if a person focuses all of their energy, day and night, on a worthy cause, of truth and purity, success is guaranteed. [edit] Awards
