Parineeta is a 1953 film based upon the 1914 novel by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The film was directed by Bimal Roy. This version of the film is considered by many to be the most faithful adaptation of the novella, particularly due to Meena Kumari's interpretation of the role of Lalita.


Lalita is an orphaned niece of an impoverished clerk named Gurucharan. She falls in love with Shekhar, son of their rich landlord neighbor. Gurucharan has to mortgage his house to Shekhar’s father in order to get one of his daughters married as he is heavily debt ridden. Shekhar’s father, often chides him about his overdue loan and a day comes when, completely pressed on all sides, Gurucharan is forced to take advantage of the altruistic offer of an interest free loan made by a wealthy young man named Girin. This gives rise to an ugly misunderstanding that Lalita has been "sold" to Girin. What happens thereafter forms the gripping rest of this great story of perfect love. Beautiful part of this movie is dialogue and communication between Meena Kumari and Ashok Kumar.
