Storyline

Advocate Nivaran Chatterjee lives a wealthy lifestyle in a small town along with his wife, and three sons. His first son is married, while his second son, Kedarnath, who suffered a head injury, is a little senile, and his third son, Amarnath, is a brilliant student. Amarnath falls in love with Beeni Mukherjee, who is a good student, has an elder dominating sister, Saraswati, who is brilliant. Kedar is attracted to Saraswati but lacks the courage to approach her. Then some of his friends introduce him as a brilliant student and athlete to Saraswati's dad, who approves of him. Kedar meets with Saraswati, who also approves of him, and both are slowly drawn to each other. It will not be long before Saraswati finds out that Kedarnath is a fraud, will give up on him, and get ready to marry a wealthy Bhagalpur-based man of her father's choice.

Beautiful...touchy...and reminds of the old Bengali family tradition...
8 June 2011 | by (Konnagar) – See all my reviews

Beautiful...touchy...and reminds of the old Bengali family tradition... I think this is enough to say about this movie.The director of this movie is Tarun Majumder and the movie is made depending on a story of Saradindu Banerjee. Story--Kedar (Tapas Pal), a dim-witted simpleton, is exiled to his uncle's house in a small town in Bihar by his father, who is extremely angry with him for being unable to pass his BA exams even after three attempts. The simple minded Kedar becomes the butt of all jokes of his cousin Santu's (Ayan Banerjee) gang of friends led by Bhombolda also known as bumble bhattacharj (Anup Kumar). He falls in love with Saraswati (Mohua Roychoudhury) a girl with a strong no-nonsense character who is also the elder sister of Santu's betrothed Bini (Debashree Roy). Saraswati's parents too are also impressed by Kedar's decency and simplicity and she also softens up to Kedar. However, Bhombolda and his gang create misunderstandings between the two. An extremely disappointed Saraswati decides to get married with a rich boy from Bhagalpur. But at the end, bhombolda realizes that Kedar has a heart of gold and admits his wrondoing leading Saraswati getting married to Kedar. I think every one should watch this movie.
