Storyline

Although scores of people migrate to Bombay, from all over India, most do not even have a roof to live under. Some who are lucky manage to find accommodations but pay very high rents, and others who find accommodations refuse to vacate under any circumstances. Two such tenants are Mrs. Laxmi Abhyankar and her employed daughter, Jaya, who live in a flat in Pali Hill area. They had rented this flat from Lucknow-based Kundanlal Choudhury 15 years ago and have been paying him the same amount of Rs.500/- since then. Kundanlal's son, Anil, comes to Bombay to seek employment, and does get employed. His dad wants him to go and live with the Abhyankars, which he does. He falls in love with Jaya and both plan to get married soon. While in Lucknow, Kundanlal misses his son and re-locates to Bombay, and would like the Abhyankars to vacate the flat. Jaya and Laxmi refuse to vacate, and ask Anil to leave, which he does. Now both Anil and his father reside in a small room, and file a complaint in ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A comedy drama you won't remember
12 March 2019 | by yrMDbSee all my reviews

To watch old '70s '80s '90s bollywood movies, is one of my hobbies.In this process last night I watched this one. Not a bad movie yet rather some good moments make you laugh and the other positives are '80s nature, people, styles, roads, cities. Otherwise not a movie you will discuss with anyone. Utpal Dutta is a true legend and best in every single movie. Kolahpuri is also did her best. Raj Babbar can't shine with his average acting. Too many songs, too long songs as well. The director is in hurry, I felt somewhere in the movie. Not a typical movies of Basu Chaterjee, one of the best directors.
