Description: Originally titled Ab Dilli Dur Nahin, Boot Polish was produced (but not directed) by prolific Indian filmmaker Raj Kapoor. The main adult character, played by Kapoor, is a carefree vagabond who befriends a pair of enterprising orphans (Baby Naaz and Rattan Kumar). Unwanted by society in general and by their family in particular, the kids stay alive by running a shoe-shining business. When Kapoor is arrested, the children dedicate themselves to being reunited with their boon companion. Bearing unavoidable traces of Vittorio De Sica's Shoeshine, Boot Polish was reasonably well-received when distributed in the U.S.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
