The Householder (1963) 6/10

Description:

James Ivory directed this lighthearted comedy set in 1960s India about an arranged marriage between two young people who are too inexperienced and immature to adjust to one another. Young college professor Prem (Shashi Kapoor) and beautiful Indu (Leela Naidu) seem ill-suited as husband and wife in their arranged marriage. While Prem begrudgingly accepts his role as the breadwinner, he tries to turn Indu into what he considers a more traditional wife. After Indu becomes pregnant and Prem turns to his mother for advice, the couple seems destined for trouble. THE HOUSEHOLDER was the first theatrical feature film for Merchant Ivory Productions, the company formed by Ivory and his producing partner, Ismail Merchant. THE HOUSEHOLDER was also the first time the two collaborated with writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, on whose novel the film was based. A recurring theme in Ivory's movies--of characters struggling to adjust to a changing world--can be spotted in this early project.
