A big hit, this effervescent comedy launches Bengali cinema’s most successful star duo ever, Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen. Rajanibabu (Chakraborty) runs the Annapurna Boarding House. Into this raucous all-male world of mainly unemployed tenants arrives the beautiful Romola (Sen) with her parents. The hero Rampriti (Kumar) in the end triumphs over his main rival (Bannerjee) and gets the girl. Dey’s breakthrough film after Basu Parivar (1952) expertly orchestrates a large number of characters while sustaining a fast pace.
