Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani (1970) Online

Honest Shankarnath, even though employed in a supervisory capacity, nets only Rs.630/-, and is unable to accede to any of the demands placed by his three school-going children, Ravi, Roopa, and Raja. When the trio declare a hunger-fast until their demands are met, he decides to let them run the household expenses, for a period of six months, by giving Ravi his entire salary. Ravi thinks that he can save a lot of money and get stuff for himself and his siblings - but things go seriously wrong when Raja loses money while gambling; relatives descend on them during Diwali; cash is stolen; and his mother, Padma, becomes seriously ill.

A nice family movie. Teaches a lot. The content is relevant even after 40 years and would always be so. A nice watch to teach your kids the importance of money. Must watch for families that want to teach their kids the value of money.It is about two families with different value systems. What will happen to each of them is quite predictable but it is entertaining all the same. The part where a guest arrives and refuses to budge is quite funny. Great performances by Balraj Sahni and the three child artists. Nirupa Roy also did justice to her role. Junior Mehmood was fun to watch. Some nice songs, especially 'Sama Hai...'.


This movie is actually about 2 families living in the same area. One is an honest family and is poor and the other is taking bribes and is going up the ladder of wealth quite fast. But since it is a Hindi movie eventually the honest family will be happier in life than the poor family. Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Rakesh Roshan, Sharda and jr Mehmood all give good performances. A few hummable songs with one alltime great by the one and the only maestro KISHORE KUMAR. Rakesh Roshan has a reasanable role in this movie. But i guess this movie made quite a impression on him because once he became a director he remade this movie (atleasat the concept) as KALA BAZAAR with Anil Kapoor, Jackie Schroiff, Farah Naaz, Kimmi and Kadar Khan


This movie amazingly displays how we all should spend according to our income. I found it interesting how a father teaches his children money management skills. That's what's missing in our school education programs, life skills.


A masterpiece movie yet very simple which describes the Indian culture & values. You cant move from your seat your wife/mother most likely to get into tears.......

Best movie if you are watching with your family specially with young children. This movie shows the strength of moral values if seeded at beginning of your children's life. Home expenditure management , Money saving habits , learning of how to simple a great life with minimal spend are the takeaways from this Hindi Film.

Go & see this movie with your children.
