The hilarious plot unveiled
The movie's trailer reveals that Praful's (Rajeev Mehta) doppelganger is the ruler of Paanthukistan, a nation. Thus, the whole Parekh family unites and goes to that secluded country where everything is wrapped in the atrocities of the ruler and the common people are the sufferers.
