Kalipada Das directs and stars in this fish-out-of-water comedy. Mistaking a "No Nuisance" sign for a street while in transit to the house of his parents-in-law, country bumpkin Gobardhan finds himself lost in the bewildering tumult of Calcutta. His rambling takes him to one Calcutta monument after another, from the Howrah Bridge to the Queen Victoria Memorial. He eventually does manage to get to his in-laws' house, and promptly feigns illness to stay longer. The sole surviving silent film from Bengali, this work was discovered by Indian film master Mrinal Sen's production crew while preparing for a shoot in 1980.
