Originally released theatrically in 1961

This is the Hindi version and is not to be confused with the Bengali version filmed in 1956 directed by Tapnn Sinha. Bemen Gupta is the second Indian director to bring Rabindranath Tagore's tale about a man and his struggles in a foreign land, to the silver screen. Based on a short story, The fruitseller from Kabul, a 1916 English translation of KaabulioYaalaa (Kabuliwala) is one of Rabindra Nath Tagore's 300 short stories written in the 1890's, and this film includes the filmi song Aye mere pyaare watan.
