This is a question on the eternal Japanese movie, otoko wa tsurai yo.

1. Could someone give me a link of the movie details with the description of each character? (for eg., sakura (chieko baisho) is tora-san's sister.)

2. There are 48 episodes spanning 27 years, right? one on every new year's day (that makes it 27) and others on?

3. Theres a certain phrase Tora-san frequently says about kekkon. something which goes like 'kekkon kedaraka........', an alliteration.

Could you let me know what it is?

Yes, there are 48 episodes spanning 27 years, since 1969 to 1995. But the first "Otoko ha Tsuraiyo" is the TV program in 1968. This TV program has 26 episodes. And the movie start on next year, 1969. Usually "Otoko ha Tsuraiyo" was put on the screen on every new year's day and the summer holidays without early works 1-7 episodes.

3. Theres a certain phrase Tora-san frequently says about kekkon. something which goes like 'kekkon kedaraka........', an alliteration.

It is not Kekkon. He say ...
"Kekko Kedarake Neko Haidarake, Oshiri no Mawari ha Kusodarake".:D
