Mukesh is Sreenivasa Iyer in the film, while Urvashi plays Jhansi Rani, Sreenivasa Iyer's wife and a history professor. Rahul, their son, is portrayed by Dhyan Sreenivasan. It also provides an insight into the protagonist's traits, like his traditional way of thinking and old-school parenting style.
The trailer also calls the film a ‘sarcastic family treat’, which is slated to fully explore Mukesh and Urvashi's timely humour and chemistry. The focus of the family entertainer is Sreenivasa Iyer, who voluntarily left a government position.
