Neel Akasher Neechey (Bengali: নীল আকাশের নীচে Nil akasher niche, "Under the Blue Sky") is a 1959 Bengali language film directed by Mrinal Sen, starring Kali Bannerjee, Manju Dey, Bikash Roy and others.

Set in the background of the last days of the British Raj in Calcutta, the film explores the lives of a number of characters, including the Platonic relationship between an immigrant Chinese wage worker, Wang Lu, and the main female character called Basanti. The film had overt political overtones and was banned for two years by the Government of India.
