(Released: Apr 13, 1979)
Rosie Perreira (Pearl Padamsee) is an overly anxious widow, living with her guitar-obsessed son, Sabhi (Ranjit Chowdhry), and a lovely daughter, Nancy (Tina Munim), who she would like to get married to a wealthy young man. Her helpful neighbor, Tom (David Abraham), introduces a young eligible Tony Braganza (Amol Palekar) to Nancy in the 9:10 AM Western Railway local train from Bandra to Churchgate. Tom also asks Nancy to introduce Tony to Rosie, which she does. Rosie is initially apprehensive about him as he only drawing a mere Rs.300/ compared to Nancy's Rs.700/-, but soon changes her mind when she finds out that after his probationary period he will draw a monthly pay of Rs.1000/-. Nancy and Tom are permitted to meet and both eventually fall in love. While Nancy wants to follow her mother's directions and get married, Tony is hesitant, and this is what costs him Nancy's love, as she starts to feel that he will not come through with the marriage. And soon Rosie starts looking elsewhere for a son-in-law, while Tony is still reluctant to make any commitments.
