The first mutual movie work of India and Russia. Story line based on Afanasiy Nikitin Stories. He was russian traveller and merchant. Whole his life he dreamed about India, and once he went there with other merchants, but due to hardness of way and fate of Afanasiy only he reached India. He made many friends there, he saw many wonderful things... It was so sad to leave this Beutiful country but Afanasiy must return to Russia to tell his King about all amazing things and kind friendly Indian people that Russia could use Afanasyi way and make trade and some bussiness with India in future. Very nice and true story - History of our countries.
