Storyline

A man is immobile and incapacitated. He is home-bound, but lucky to have multiple professional and nonprofessional volunteers serve and help him. He takes full advantage of the situation and uses and abuses the volunteer crew. The volunteers mean well and count a loser boyfriend and quasi-man among their ranks. The man gives up his girlfriend to the man with nary a protest. The girl is game too. She is easy. After all, her boyfriend is hardly a man. Written by dramalist/asianwikirip

One-Line Review: A Banana at This Time of the Night? / Average Comedy / 4 Stars
29 January 2020 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

A Banana at the This Time of the Night? starts of well with a very unique plot but then spirals into familiar territory which reeks of typical motivational tropes and which also takes the fun out of the first 30 minutes that you will enjoy. TN.

(Watched and reviewed at its India premiere at the 3rd Japanese Film Festival of India in Mumbai.)
