Plot[edit]

Season One[edit]

The programme is based on a character named Balu a simple, innocent and super enthusiastic person who stays with his family consisting of his wife, parents and his grandmother. Each member of the family has an interesting role to play, right from being a television addict grandmother to a manipulative and demanding wife.

The episodes feature a series of incidents and confusions that follow in everything that Balu does, as he invariably manages to get into misadventures. He also has a body builder neighbor who troubles and beats him up. However, Balu somehow succeeds to turn even mundane situations into indigenous adventures.

Season Two[edit]

The second season revolves around a Punjabi family Ahuja’s, living in Mumbai, who love each other no doubt, but with a pinch of salt, actually in their case a ladle of garam masala... A story woven around a sweet and innocent family and their humorous interaction with the outside world as well as within the family. he family consists of Jay Ahuja(Family Head), Bhavana Ahuja (Wife of Jay), Gaurav Ahuja (Elder Son of Jay), Bhairavi Ahuja (Wife of Gaurav), Rahul Ahuja (Younger Son of Jay), Anita Ahuja (Wife of Rahul) and K K (Servant of Ahuja Family).
