Where did you watch this movie?

Witty and wise, this pioneering social satire contrasts conservative Bengali culture with that of the colonial elite, through the twists and turns in the life of a young Indian man, who returns to his native land after spending a long time abroad. After deeply imbibing Western values and beliefs, he startles and shocks his family with his quixotic notions of love and matrimony. How will his future pan out?

A long time in the making, the film was promoted as the first Bengali film, with a live 'all-Bengali' band to accompany the screening.

This movie marks the acting debut of Dhirendranath Ganguly. His performance in this movie was well liked as his acting incorporated Hollywood slapstick and a number of 19th century performance traditions from Calcutta.
