Gulabo Sitabo Story
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Gulabo Sitabo, from Rising Sun Films:
“Shoojit Sircar’s quirky dramedy is the tale of two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one-upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own. Meet Mirza (Bachchan), a 78-year-old landlord, who would move heaven and earth for his most prized possession: an old dilapidated mansion in the heart of Lucknow. But this garden of roses comes with its own cluster of prickly thorns: tenants. Amongst them, most prominently, Baankey (Khuranna), a shrewd, sly and squatted tenant, who matches Mirza bit for bit in their ceaseless bantering. Gulabo Sitabo is a slice-of-life where Mirza and Baankey are like Tom and Jerry, unique and unmatched, friend and foe, naughty and smart, little and large, all combining to produce chaos.”
