Naya Daur ( 1957 ) , Hindi
Synopsis: "Shankar lives in a remote village in rural India with his mother and sister, Manju, and drives a horse carriage for a living. The main employer in the region is Maganlal, a kind-hearted businessman. When Maganlal announces that he would like to undertake a religious pilgrimage, his son, Kundan, takes over and wants to cut back on labour and mechanize the business. He also introduces a bus, taking away business from the horse-carriage drivers. This angers the community and they ask Kundan to reconsider. He refuses but agrees to withdraw the bus provided Shankar races it with his horse carriage. The action unfolds as Shankar unites a divided village and sets about to keep his faith in winning this race between man and machine. "
