Comedy set in the Maharashtrian lower middleclasses.
Bank clerk Sadanand accidentally runs
his motorised bicycle into a funeral procession
for an infant child. Two members of the
procession, Shrirang and Govind, believe that
in this accident Sadanand has ‘wounded the
soul’ of the dead baby. For most of the film, the
two try to beat up Sadanand, while Sadanand,
with the help of his pregnant wife Urmila,
fends off this threat. The film introduces a
number of characters into this process, and
ends when it is revealed that the bereaved
parents of the dead infant in the film’s
beginning are expecting another baby.
