Utsav (Hindi: उत्सव; English: The Festival) is a 1984 Hindi drama film, produced by Shashi Kapoor and directed by Girish Karnad. The film is based 2nd-century BC Sanskrit play, Mrichakatika (The Little Clay Cart) by Shudraka.

The film stars Shankar Nag, Shashi Kapoor, Rekha, Amjad Khan, Anuradha Patel, Shekhar Suman, Anupam Kher, Neena Gupta, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Annu Kapoor, Sanjana Kapoor and Kunal Kapoor.

The role of Samsthanak played by Shashi Kapoor, who is also the producer of this movie, was originally to be played by Amitabh Bachchan. However, in July 1982 Bachchan met with a major accident in Bangalore, therefore the producer himself decided to step in. The film's music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal and is still noted for its songs like, 'Mann Kyun Behka', a rare duet by Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar, and Anuradha Paudwal's 'Mere Man Baje Mridang' for which she won the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award in 1985. Suresh Wadkar also has a song, 'Saanj Dhale Gagan Tale'. The Central Board of Film Certification of India gave this movie "A" certificate which means "Restricted to adults" on 23 August 1984.
