First Asian Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, is still revered as an icon in India. On 24 March 2004, his Nobel medal was stolen from Shantiniketan in West Bengal, where it was housed in his residence turned museum. Subsequently, a nationwide furore started and a massive search operation was put in place to find the guilty. Ultimately the medal was not found and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) dropped the case in 2010. With this in the backdrop ``Nobel Chor`` (The Nobel Thief) is a fictional account of a poor farmer, Bhanu, who circumstantially gets involved in the theft. He decides to embark on a journey to the City of Joy - Kolkata, to return/ sell the prize with a view to improve his own quality of life as well as that of his impoverished village.
