Description

Charming, touching and wittily ironic, THE HOUSEHOLDER was the first feature film made by Merchant Ivory Productions. Adapted by Oscar winning screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala from her own novel, THE HOUSEHOLDER is a wryly comic portrait of an arranged marriage. Prem (SHASHI KAPOOR) and his beautiful young bride Indu (LEELA NAIDU) are strangers thrown together into sudden intimacy. Both are deeply unhappy - living in poverty, uneasy in each other's company and missing their own families. Both are also yearning for something more from life and finally have a chance of finding it when Prem embarks on a highly entertaining odyssey that will teach him the true meaning of being a householder.
