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)

A great,simple,little talk!
29 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Basu Chatterji's movies are known for depicting middle-class lives of Indians effectively.This movie does the same.Based in Christian families of Mumbai of Tony and Nancy,it talks about their love relationship,the involvement of their families into it and marriage!!!

Basu da's direction is flawless.The movie does not falter at any moment. It is highly engrossing and makes for repeated viewing.The music by Rajesh Roshan is beautiful.All the four songs are extra-ordinary and have been sung equally well.The cinematography,art direction, costumes, editing,etc are all good and add to the beauty of the story.

Coming to the performances,Amol Palekar as always is exceptional.His look in the movie compliments his acting.Tina Munim is average.The supporting cast that consists of Pearl Padamsee,Piloo Wadia,Leela Mishra,Shobhini Singh,David,Ranjit Chowdhary,Deb Mukherjee,Uday Chandra,Arvind Deshpande,etc have all performed very well.Asrani in a special appearance and Tun Tun in an imaginary sequence leave a mark.

On the overall,the movie is very good and makes for repeated viewing.
