This is one of the classics of Bengali comedies. Hilarious yet having a very relevant social message. Directed by one of the great directors of Bengal Mr. Tapan Sinha and starring one of Bengali film industries comic geniuses Mr. Rabi Ghosh ,this film entertains people some of whom were born after Rabi Ghosh died. Its evergreen. Its also been remade in several Indian languages, the most prominent one was in Hindi called 'Bawarchi' starring Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Bhadhuri. Ghosh plays a manservant cum cook who shows up one day at a very dysfunctional family who is suffering a crisis lack of domestic help and consequently chaos reign in the household. They hire him. He immediately takes over and takes complete control of the running of day to day affairs. He's so good that its comical the way he handles everything so masterfully. He is to housekeepers what Mary Poppins is to nannies/governesses. Gradually he cures the family off its dysfunctional aspects. This movie has a great ensemble cast of actors who are all great in their roles and still ranks as one of the greatest films from 'Tollywood'. And the best part is that it never ceases to be funny/feel-good even on viewing multiple times. Watch it with family and friends and I promise you a very quality time. Happy Viewing folks!
WARNING! Its in Black and White and for folks with new fangled gadgetry its a sacrilege. Keep an open mind and watch it anyway.
