The protagonist, Puttan, is a middle aged man. His family consists of his father Nagpal, his much younger wife Noori and 20 yrs younger brother Gopal. Puttan works in the local animal husbandry, delivering baby cows, while he himself has no kids. He has 2 bulls working overtime to impregnate city cows. There is a Bull & his owner who keep hounding him to take an extra bull, thus giving the Bull government job & steady income. Nagpal is always unhappy with Puttan because he is so busy with cows that he has no time to produce a son to carry family lineage. Nagpal has all his hopes pinned on Gopal to continue the family lineage. Gopal is unemployed, barely getting through with studies, is good for nothing Romeo - stalking his heartthrob, Suman.

Puttan is the sole bread earner with Noorie assisting through her beauty parlor.

One of Puttan's friends comes up with an idea to deal with mehngai but what started out as a great idea turns into a nightmare! What was to bring them relief from mehngai, turns messy, creating hilarious situations.

What happens with Puttan and his family?  Do they come out of mess or go even deeper in this ...
