Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam (साहिब बीबी और ग़ुलाम) is an romantic classic of Indian cinema produced by Guru Dutt and directed by Akbar Alvi in 1962. The movie is based on a Bengali novel Sahib Bibi Golam (“Master Wife Slave”, 1953) by Bimal Mitra, which is set in Calcutta, India at the end of the 19th century.

The film not only potrayed the delcine of feudalism in the Bengal of British India but also offered a world view from the prespective of a woman trying to break free of her constricted social role. The plot of the film is a platonic friendship between a beautiful lonely wife (Bibi) of an aristocrat (Sahib) and a career-driven low-income part-time servant (Ghulam).
