The film shows Sudha Mishra (Dimple Kapadia) cribbing in the backseat of a cab as she returns to her Vasant Kunj residence after a month-long trip. She’s irritably loud, so much that the cabbie can’t wait to get rid of her. Sudha Mishra is an old divorced lady, with an intractable obsessive compulsive disorder of keeping things spick n’ span and bossing around everyone just to prove her point! Anyways, as Sudha reaches her peaceful abode (as it appears), she first goes on to greet her parrotfish Mishty. As her loving Mishty doesn’t greet her back, she counts the spots on the fish and then starts cribbing again that it’s not her Mishty and something’s fishy. As she proceeds to her room, a lady dressed in white rushes out of her room. And then the story begins! There are several flashbacks and the movie keeps switching between the past and the current situation.

Through the flashback, we get to see that Sudha had handed over the responsibility of her house to her niece’s fiancé, Sumit. On the first night itself at his friend’s bash hosted at monstrous maasi’s house, Sumit ends up handing over the house to a couple, Neerav (Anand Tiwari) and Gopa (Deepti Pujari) who have eloped from their hometown. For some office work, Neerav has to leave the town. As Gopa gets scared alone in the house, Neerav asks his friend Ravi (Manu Rishi) to accompany her. Well, Ravi is a cheap character who uses Gopa, following this, Gopa falls in love with him and addresses him as her husband. Ravi obviously wanted no strings attached and ropes in Meenal (Geetika Tyagi) to help him get rid of Gopa. Gopa leaves, enters Meenal’s brother Rajpal in maasi’s house. Rajpal is a boxer during the day and a cross-dressing Kathak dancer by the night. Meenal’s friend Hooda (Mithun Rodwittiya) wants a favour from Rajpal and eventually he ends up with the house. Then there’s a Manipuri family (Hooda’s friends) who takes over the house-turned-guest-house! The situation gets chaotic, leaving the house in shambles! What more, maasi’s Mishty dies in the first half of the film itself. And then the characters keep replacing it with a new fish each time ‘coz everytime some situation unfolds and the fish dies…

Meanwhile, Sudha Mishra cooks up whimsical stories about the lady in white who jumped out of her room, only to flee away. She repeats the story to anyone who will listen, which gets a bit monotonous and melodramatic after a point of time. She portrays the lady as a chudail. Phew! Enough said now! The film is too predictable and unbearable as it’s really not funny!
