Munni O Saat Chowkidaar

Dhritikanta Ghosal is an industrialist who owns a mosquito repellent factory. He was abducted twice before the elections and released only after paying a hefty ransom. The third election is just round the corner and Dhritikanta is apprehending another mishap. He is convinced that his wife Sunanda is behind his abduction. Sunanda is a politician who files her nomination from several constituencies during every poll and ritualistically loses her security deposits. Dhritikanta is certain she spends the ransom on her polls. Sourav is a senior executive in Dhritikanta's company. He and his wife Munni have a perfect marital life. He has to go on an official tour for 20 days. Dhritikanta suddenly realises the safest shelter for him before the ensuing polls would be Sourav-Munni's flat. He is confident that staying close to Munni would make him immune to any danger whatsoever. But Sourav is dumfounded when Dhritikanta moots this proposal. After much deliberation, he finally decides to recruit seven chowkidars (guards) for Munni who would ensure her safety during his absence. This is how the hilarious satire begins. This Sundaram production is written, directed and performed by Manoj Mitra.
