Educated, traveled, intelligent, wealthy, and a businesswomen Mala Mathur would like to marry a man who can look after the household duties while she works. Her uncle, Mr. Mathur, ridicules this idea, and tells her that she will never find any husband in this manner. Mala advertises in the newspapers, and gets tons of responses. She decides on marrying a young man by the name of Shekar Sinha, who is poor, unemployed, and willing to commit himself to household duties. Before the marriage, Shekar is asked to sign an agreement, which he does. And thus begins the marriage, which is not really a marriage, but an employment contract, which is terminable after one year. The question is will Shekar be able to survive for one year - especially when he does not know how to cook meals for his wealthy "wife". Written by rAjOo (

An entertaining comedy with Rekha in the main role and enjoyable by the whole family
10 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Agreement is a very entertaining comedy film with Rekha, Utpal Dutta and Shailendra Singh in the primary roles. It is a fast moving film with a lot of events going around the lives of Mala Mathur( Rekha ) and Shekhar ( Shailendra Singh ). Mala is foreign educated, accomplished and holds a modernistic view of womens role in marriage and challenges elderly uncle Mr. Mathur ( Utpal Dutta ) to prove her point. The point was that she will select a husband who will be like a servant and cook to her and she will find plenty of candidates to take this job. Director Anil Ganguly did a commendable job in creating the hilarious circumstances surrounding the clauses of the agreement signed by Mala and Shekhar. Eventually both Mala and Shekhar develops a romantic relationship and things end up as expected. The entire movie is about Rekha who demonstrated her acting skills very well specially as a foreign trained moder woman wearing western dresses and hairstyle. It is hard to imagine that the same Rekha played the immortal role of courtesan Umrao Jaan. She is just a marvellous actor. The movie will keep you glued to the events and it is definitely an entertainer. I gave it an eight out of ten.
