Labour Day is celebrated all over the world on May 01, signifying the undying spirit of the labour against the onslaught of capitalism. Labour as a class has been dealt with in an interesting manner in the Hindi films, and most often than not the father of the hero has been a labour leader while the son gravitates against it and turns towards capitalism. The wastefulness of this turn however is underlined in the end. Trade Union leadership has most of the times been portrayed as an element of idealism in Hindi films, a sign of hope.

Labour Day has been shot through in different manners in the Hindi film and one of the biggest inspirations of Labour Day and films that have used it as a theme have revolved on the textile mills. It may be owing to the fact that textile mills used to dominate the landscape of Mumbai and it was always an inspiration to look up to it. The notable films that used the theme of labour as the predominating motif included:




It was probably the fist film made by legendary B.R. Chopra which emphasized about the dignity of labour, and its song ''Saathi Haath Badhana'' was a clarion call for unity of the labour. One of the lines of the stanzas was ''Mehnat apne lekh ki rekha mehnat se kya darna, kal gairon ki khatir kee aaj apni khatir karna'', still is the motto that is a binding force for labour as a class.
