For Atul Dutt and his young bride Vina married life is proving far from straightforward, when it comes to their 'first night'. Atul is so woefully inhibited by the proximity of his parents, let alone his brother's childish pranks, that his beautiful virgin bride remains just that. When their hard saved honeymoon is cancelled the next day, the couple is forced to return to the Dutt household and set up home there. So with meddling parents, nosy neighbours and a community that thrives on gossip, can this marriage last?
The film is based in Bolton, Lancashire, NW England but the cinema scenes are filmed around Barking Road and the market scene in Green Street Market, LONDON E6 as the Boleyn public house is clearly visible in one shot. See more »
What a load of rubbish that desecrates the great original.
What an abysmal remake of a great British film called The Family Way (1966). Heavy-handed, ham-fisted and lacking ANY quality acting it drearily and pathetically trudges its way through almost-mimicking the great film made in 1966. The final insult was the atrocious acting by the 'father' at the end of the film when he cries as he remembers the friend whom his 'son' resembles. The late, great Sir John Mills as well as the late Marjorie Rhodes might have choked had they seen this particular drivel of so-called 'acting', as too might Hayley Mills and Hywell Bennett.
What a mediocre mess this whole effort is, it should never have been made. Leave good originals alone, don't desecrate their memory by creating rubbish like this. Shame to everyone involved in this.
A rating of 5.6 for this?! Perhaps anyone who thinks that this tripe remake is a reasonable film should watch the original and see what a good film is all about - QUALITY. QUALITY gets a deserved 7.5 rating.
