Owing to its gripping plot, Shatranj Ke Khiladi was adapted into an award winning feature film by the renowned Indian director Satyajit Ray.
Idgah, another one from the book, is a deeply moving tale of a very poor child called Hamid who is left with only 3 paise to celebrate the festival of Eid. As he watches his friends spend their pocket monies on rides, candies and other festivities, Hamid’s young mind thinks of gifting something to his loving grandmother using the 3 paise. The end leaves the readers teary-eyed and wondering how the small boy could be so thoughtful and kind. Idgah sensitively observes the humane relationship between Hamid and his grandmother.
In Bade Bhai Sahab, the master storyteller splendidly captures the love, loyalty and the differences between two young brothers Kamta Prasad and Samta Prasad. What starts as a small disagreement in the way they look at school and studies, gradually drags these brothers to question each other’s outlook on life. Amidst comical anecdotes, Samta’s vibrant and easy going character clashes with the poised nature of his older brother.

Premchand was born in a village near Varanasi in 1880, with the birth name of Dhanpat Rai Srivastav. He had first chosen Nawab Rai as his pen name, before changing it to Premchand.

Most of his books have been translated into different languages and some have been adapted into plays and movies. Inspired by modern thought, Premchand married a widow despite strong social resistance. He passed away in 1936, after which his wife Shivarani Devi has, in his memory, written Premchand Ghar Mein.
