Insan Jaag Utha (lit. Mankind has awoken) is a 1959 Hindi film, produced and directed by Shakti Samanta, and written by Nabendu Ghosh and Vrajendra Gaur, based on a story by Saroj Mitra. The film stars Sunil Dutt, Madhubala, Nasir Hussain, Bipin Gupta and Madan Puri in lead roles. It has music by Sachin Dev Burman, with lyrics by Shailendra.

Samanta started his career in the 1950s, by making entertainment-driven films and thrillers, like Inspector (1956) and Howrah Bridge (1958). Insaan Jaag Utha was his attempt to shift genre to social themes. However, after the film didn't do well at box office, he shifted back to making entertainment-oriented films for another decade, before attempting the genre with films like Aradhana (1969), Kati Patang (1970) and Amar Prem (1971).[1]
