Storyline

Rosie Perreira is an overly anxious widow, living with her guitar-obsessed son, Sabhi, and a lovely daughter, Nancy, who she would like to get married to a wealthy young man. Her helpful neighbor, Tom, introduces a young eligible Tony Braganza to Nancy in the 9:10 AM Western Railway local train from Bandra to Churchgate. Tom also asks Nancy to introduce Tony to Rosie, which she does. Rosie is initially apprehensive about him as he only drawing a mere Rs.300/ compared to Nancy's Rs.700/-, but soon changes her mind when she finds out that after his probationary period he will draw a monthly pay of Rs.1000/-. Nancy and Tom are permitted to meet and both eventually fall in love. While Nancy wants to follow her mother's directions and get married, Tony is hesitant, and this is what costs him Nancy's love, as she starts to feel that he will not come through with the marriage. And soon Rosie starts looking elsewhere for a son-in-law, while Tony is still reluctant to make any commitments. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Another Basu Chatterjee masterpiece
20 November 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The story involves a young man and woman who travel by train to their office and fall in love. The unique thing about this film as with other Basu Chaterjee movies is it captures the life of the middle class very well.

In this movie Basu Chaterjee captures the lifestyle of the middle class urban Christian community in India authentically. Like many of his films the city of Mumbai is an important character in the movie Technically it may not be very advanced but the story and the narrative is one of the finest.

It is unfortunate that most people of my generation (I am born in 1980) have not seen this movie or even heard about it. The lack of knowledge about this movie among the young generation has prevented a good quality DVD of this movie hitting the market.

I have given it 9 out of 10.
