    • The entire film is centered around Durgaprasad (Soumitra Chaterjee) who is an aged don (rather the caricature of a don) who considers Daud Ibrahim as his idol and curses himself as no one feels threatened by him. He is an emotional sentimental fool who has grown up by reading novels and books about dons. To keep him company he has two sidekicks Montu Singh and Jhantu Singh (Kanchan Mallick & P. Gayen respectively) who are complete cartoons. Montu has a very shrill voice and loves to play with toys and toy guns where as Jhantu is drunk most of the time and cockeyed. Durgaprasad’s daughter Ranjita (Aparajita Ghosh Das) is in love with Apratim (Subrata Dutta), a struggling actor. Durgaprasad’s outgoing calls are barred and Montu goes to pay the outstanding amount, but misplaces Durgaprasad’s number by a single digit and the entire amount is credited to Apratim’s account. Durgaprasad is furious when his phone doesn’t work after 7days and he finds that the entire amount has been credited to Apratim, but nevertheless decides to finish him. Ranjita has friends who are journalists and wants to do a story on the underworld and the dons who rule it. Though not initially, later on she reveals the truth about her father’s real identity to her friends. Durgraprasad decides to finish Apratim even though he knows who Apratim is, but mean while Ranjita’s friends decide to take the help of Muktadhara, the rival don of Durgaprasad to handle him. Durgaprasad decides to finish Apratim the following day. At 10:10 in the morning, but at night he has an unpleasant dream and wakes up at 10:10 in the morning instead and turns a new leaf.
    This entire has been made as a tribute to Soumitra Chatterjee as a result of which he supposed to carry the entire film on his shoulders (which he does so) and others are there to support him. Honestly speaking he has done a marvellous job in portraying Durgaprasad a caricature of a don who still takes the name of Bankim, Michael and Rabithakur while he always becomes emotional at crucial moments. Kanchan as usual is quite good, but the person about whom we have been reading and seeing i.e Claudia Ciesla in the role of Sarin, the journalist is an absolute disappointment and she can neither act or sing (she has sung the title song) to save her life and one is afraid people will only remember her for other reasons. There is also one particular character who keeps on appearing various ways in nearly every other frame of the film. Now what is he all about?
