Retired school-teacher and widower, Dinanath, lives a middle-classed lifestyle along with three sons: Shankar, his wife Parvati and five children; Ram, his wife, Sita, and two children; and Kanhaiya and his wife, Radha. While Shankar teaches music in a college, Ram is a Court Clerk, and Kanhaiya a Salesman. The trio hand over their monthly earnings to their father who runs the household stringently - often comically inflicting 'school-like' punishment even on adults. Their lifestyle changes dramatically after Parvati, Sita and Radha find out that movie star, Sheela Devi, has moved in next to their house. They decide to invite her over, and she accepts and the trio set about to borrow money, jewelry, renovate the house, buy/lease new furniture, even learn English - in their attempt to impress the actress. The trio do not realize that their respective husbands too are big fans, and each one of them has his very own secret agenda of trying to woo her.
