Storyline

Kailashnath is a widower, and father of an only son, Ramesh. He feels that his son has come of age, and must get married. He goes to see a number of young ladies for him, but is disappointed with them, as he feels they are too modern, speak English, and listen to foreign music. He feels that Ramesh will be better off marrying a non-English speaking lady, preferably from a small village. But the predicament of Ramesh is that he is already in love with Ramola, a very well qualified, English speaking Doctor, and he knows fully well that she will not be approved by his dad. So Ramesh, Ramola and Lalaji concoct a plot, making Ramola masquerade as a naive, non-English speaking village belle, with hilarious and unpredictable results.

A very good family movie
17 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A typical movie centred around Utpal Dutt where he is allergic to his daughter-in-law knowing English, as he considers such woman, to be non traditional and outgoing. There is another movie of Utpal Dutt as actor and Hrikesh Mukherjee as director called 'Golmaal' which centres around a similar theme where Uptpal Dutt does not like a man without a moustache. The team of such movies remains the same Hrikesh-Mukherjee-Utpal Dutt. A simple, comic and captivating movie till the end. Acting by all the actors has been excellent, top of the heap being Utpal Dutt. Another pair of actors Faroukh Shaikh & Deepti Naval have also acted in numerous films of this genre like Chashme Buddoor directed by Sai Paranjpe. In essence it is a movie with Hrikesh Mukherjee trademark, which in fact had prompted me to watch it in the first place, although this movie was not as popular as his other movies, but was equally good.
