Naukri (Job) was a 1954 Bollywood film directed by Bimal Roy for Bimal Roy Productions. The lead actors were Kishore Kumar and Sheila Ramani. This film is about the dreams and aspirations of the educated youth getting shattered as they struggle in the city for employment, in the ensuing years after India attained independence. Naukri and Baap Beti (1954) are cited as "sensitive" and "memorable" films from Roy. In Naukri, Bimal Roy tackles yet another social problem, this time involving unemployment. Naukri is one of the earliest films where Kishore Kumar first gained prominence. Since his comic persona had not yet fully developed, Naukri sees a sincere, sensitive and restrained performance from him.
