Whimsical comedy about Bapu Master (Paranjpe), an old schoolteacher, and his wife Kashibai (Gupte). After the graduation of their two sons and the marriage of their daughter, the much-loved teacher and his wife retire. However, fate intervenes: their house is auctioned and the couple are forced to seek shelter with their children, which forces the aged couple to separate. Eventually a grateful student rather than one of their children helps out and offers them shelter together. With Pedgaonche Shahane (1952) this is Paranjpe’s best-known performance as actor- director and is sometimes seen as a predecessor to Panthulu’s School Master (1958).
