Borolar Ghor (Assamese : বৰলাৰ ঘৰ, Bachelor’s House) is a 2012 bilingual Assamese-Bengali romantic comedy film starring Utpal Das and Debasmita Banerjee in the lead roles. The film was directed and produced by Mani C. Kappan under the banner of Okay Productions. This film was the remake of 1993 superhit Malayalam film Meleparambil Aanveedu , which was also produced by Kappan under the same production house. [2] Noted Assamese filmmaker Manju Borah acted as an advisor in the film. [1]



Madhukrisha (Utpal Das) is the youngest son of Hariprashanna (Nipon Goswami). His brothers Jaykrishna (Julen Bhuyan) and Gopikrisha (Biki), as well as Madhu himself are all unmarried. He passed MBA and went to West Bengal for job. Madhu sees a young Bengali woman named Mukta (Debasmita Benarjee) who is the daughter of a rich man (Mani C. Kappan). The two fall in love and elope.

Madhu is afraid of whether or not his parents would agree to their marriage, so he keeps Mukta undercover as a maid in his home. When Madhu goes away on business, his parents realise that Mukta is pregnant and decide to dismiss her from her job. When Madhu returns home, he is forced to reveal that Mukta is his wife. Madhu's mother, who likes Mukta, scolds him for keeping his wife as a servant – she and her husband express their willingness to accept Mukta as their daughter-in-law.



Borolar Ghor is the first Assamese film produced by a production house based on south India. On 10 August 2012 Mani C Kappen, owner of Okay Productions, along with Manju Borah announced making a new commercial film in a press conference held in Guwahati. According to Kappan, "I have found that the culture of my state (Kerala) and Assam were quite similar. So I thought to make a film here." Sixty per cent of the dialogues in the bilingual film were in Assamese and the remaining in Bengali. [1] Assamese subtitle was given for Bengali dialogues and Bengali subtitles were given for Assamese dialogues. [3]

The film was dedicated to Dr. Bhupen Hazarika. [4]
