Tannu, the son dwells in a world of action and glamour, romance and sex.
Dwarkadas, the father, desperately tries to make money so that he can start an independent business and buy a small apartment.
Munni, the daughter, resents the constant restrictions and denials of her desires.
Jiya the mother, constantly struggles with her husband's low income and short temper, her son's boastfulness and her daughter's hostility.
Paresh Kamdar's debut film is about the dream world that exists in the heart and mind of a Bombay tenement dweller. Tunnu lives in a fantasy-world. His father struggles desperately to make a living and to buy a new apartment. Then, there is Tina, the girl of Tunnu's dreams, a symbol of everything that is unattainable in his life.
The film consciously spoofs 'Bollywood-type' cinema and manages to be just as irritating and facile as cinema of that style. Yet there is a subtle realism that runs throughout as the film's counterpoint.
