He is credited with leading Hindi literary movement known as Nayi Kahani and reviving literary magazine HANS, founded by Munshi Premchand.

Hangal and Dina Pathak in lead roles. Along with Mani Kaul’s Uski Roti and Mrinal Sen’s Bhuvan Shome, it is regarded as one of the films which started the Indian New Wave.
