Ogo Bodhu Shundori (Bengali: ওগো বধূ সুন্দরী; English:Hey Beautiful Bride) is a 1981 Bengali comedy film, directed by Salil Dutta. It was one of the last films of the iconic Bengali actor Uttam Kumar, who died during production. A lookalike was brought in to stand in for Kumar during the final sections of the film, and younger brother Torun Kumar's voice was dubbed in.
Gagan (Uttam Kumar) did not like to socialise while his wife Chitra (Sumitra Mukherjee) loved attending parties. One day Chitra's friend Lola invited her to a party. In the meanwhile the Kolkata Book Fair took off and Gagan wanted to go. Savitri (Moushumi Chatterjee) lived with her uncle from an early age. One day her uncle sold her for some money from where Savitri escaped and took shelter in Gagan's house. When Gagan's wife saw Savitri in Gagan's reading room, she went to her grandfather's house. Gagan and Abalakanta (Santosh Dutta) helped Savitri learn etiquette and the ways of genteel society.
One day Gagan thought of an alliance between Savitri and Abalakanta. But Savitri did not agree to marry Abalakanta. In the meanwhile Sandip (Ranjit Mullick) came and was confused on seeing Savitri. Gagan then realised about their love. So he arranged for Sandip and Savitri's marriage in his house. But Chitra's servant gave the information to her that Gagan was getting married to Savitri. So Chitra came to the house with her grandfather. Finally Chitra realised that the bridegroom was her brother Sandip. The film thus ends on a happy note.
