Nutan created a stir in 1955 with the film Seema, in which she played a multi-layered role. A character so tough to portray that few gorgeous heroines would be willing to take it on. Gauri, who works as an orphan in several homes, becomes a juvenile delinquent as individuals try to take advantage of her, with one going so far as to molest her. She beats the culprit black and blue, but he retaliates by filing a false theft accusation against her, and she is sent to an ashram full of orphan girls with varied issues.

The film Bandini follows the narrative of a lady who is serving a life sentence for murder. She has to choose between two very different men: the kind prison doctor and a man from her past. Bandini is a female-centric film, one of the few in Indian cinema. It centres around Kalyani or Bandini, which literally means imprisoned. It is also the only film that highlights regular rural women's sacrifices throughout India's struggle for freedom.

Even though the role of Kalyani is a bit understated in the film, Nutan stole the show with her phenomenal screen presence.
