Chhedhi returns to his village in Bihar and impresses everyone, including his simple and naive cousin, Mangru, with tales of his prosperity in Mumbai. After he returns, Ramdayal, Mangru's dad, enraged with his son for giving money away to the needy, asks him to join Chhedhi and prosper. Mangru accordingly re-locates and is shocked to find him living in Bharat Nagar's slum in Andheri and driving an auto-rickshaw. Suspecting a shortage of clothes, he then attempts to coerce young scantily clad women, including Urvashi, to wear traditional clothing, and is beaten by a mob. Then his life undergoes a major change when he must face off against an extortionist, Babubhai; and a manipulative builder, Subodh.
