Laden with laughs, this family-oriented comedy revolves around two kids Jacky (Markand Soni) and Chakki (Kesar Majethia), narrating the story of their hilariously madcap Parekh family to their fellow classmates on a camp. When Chandrakant Sheth (Arvind Vaidya), father of Himanshu (Jamnadas Majethia) and Hansa (Supriya Pathak) passes away, he manages to tell the Parekh family that his last wish is to have his son Himanshu married. Now, Himanshu has one ambition since childhood, to have a memorable, legendary love story. It is all together another matter that he is not in love with anyone and neither is he capable of getting any sensible girl to like him. However, as Babuji (Anang Desai) often wisely says, "for every idiotic Praful (Rajeev Mehta), there is an even more idiotic Hansa made", his prophecy turns out to be true. Parminder (Kirti Kulhari), Himanshu's neighbor, falls in love with Himanshu for no logical reason and the couple get engaged to get married. That is when the story line takes a turn – Himanshu realizes on the eve of the wedding that the impending ceremony would mean impending doom to his desire to have a legendary love story, as nothing interesting has happened in his love story to make it memorable. It was a simple, boring event with a boring happy ending. No resistance, no conflict, no separation, no sad song, no climax, nothing. So, in order to make the Himanshu–Parminder love story a legendary one, Himanshu, along with Babuji, Praful, Hansa and Jayshree (Nimisha Vakharia), sets out to stall the wedding. And then begins their journey to create all those missing stages in Himanshu's love story in order to make it legendary. However, in this hilariously hare-brained process, they make a mess of everything, with Parminder deciding to separate from him altogether. Will Himanshu succeed in winning back the love of his life, thereby really turning his love story into a legendary one?

Trivia:
The first ever Indian movie based on a sitcom (Khichdi (2002)).

Initially, a total of 3 songs were to be added in the film, but due to time restrictions one of the songs had to cut out. The film features the songs "Bhosle Market" and the title track "Khichdi".

The shoot was scheduled to last 40 days, but the production crew managed to complete it in 39 days.

Vandana Pathak, the original Jayshree from the TV version of Khichdi, was unable to work out dates for the shoot, therefore she was replaced by Nimisha Vakharia.

The film also features a special guest appearance by director Farah Khan, in which she plays herself.
