Storyline

Honest Shankarnath, even though employed in a supervisory capacity, nets only Rs.630/-, and is unable to accede to any of the demands placed by his three school-going children, Ravi, Roopa, and Raja. When the trio declare a hunger-fast until their demands are met, he decides to let them run the household expenses, for a period of six months, by giving Ravi his entire salary. Ravi thinks that he can save a lot of money and get stuff for himself and his siblings - but things go seriously wrong when Raja loses money while gambling; relatives descend on them during Diwali; cash is stolen; and his mother, Padma, becomes seriously ill.

A nice family movie. Teaches a lot. The content is relevant even after 40 years and would always be so.
15 February 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A nice family movie. Teaches a lot. The content is relevant even after 40 years and would always be so. A nice watch to teach your kids the importance of money. Must watch for families that want to teach their kids the value of money.It is about two families with different value systems. What will happen to each of them is quite predictable but it is entertaining all the same. The part where a guest arrives and refuses to budge is quite funny. Great performances by Balraj Sahni and the three child artists. Nirupa Roy also did justice to her role. Junior Mehmood was fun to watch. Some nice songs, especially 'Sama Hai...'.
