A dreamy Maharashtrian-Brahmin girl, Meenaxi, with an extra sensitive sense of smell is in search of love, who enjoys the occasional dream song and dance sequence. Hilarity ensues as she has to juggle between her reality, her overly sexed up colleague, her job and being a traditional Marathi girl for her madly naive family's tedious process of looking for a boy. A father who smokes like a chimney, an overly controlling mother, a brother who has a litter of stray dogs at home. A blind grandmother on a motorised wheelchair zipping her way in and out people's spaces and conversations, who has saved 3 tolas of gold, in the form of her dentures, for Meenaxi's wedding. After getting attracted to the fragrance of a mysterious, self-indulged artist, she daydreams about him, while the popular belief is that he is not a nice guy. Despite this she stalks him and spies on him, only to discover that he is from a Tamil background, raised in Pune, and works in an incent factory, the mysterious smell that she has been attracted towards in the first place. In the meanwhile, she has been promised to prince charming by her family. Complications arise, as she has to decide between an ideal husband and possibly true love.

Character Sketches:

Rani as Meenaxi: A simple Marathi small town girl, with a very sensitive nose, in search of love, likes cleanliness and knows her aesthetic values and follows them. She is concerned about her independence and yet is innocent by nature. With a strong personality and a sensitive heart, she is modern and traditional in all aspects of life.

Prithviraj as Suriya: He is a quite, self-indulged, passionate artist. He is quite an introvert, he hides is pain from the world in his unconventional art form which makes him quite mysterious. He doesn't really worry about the world and its happenings, does his own thing. He loves the common people like a man on the streets, prostitutes, labourers etc.

Subodh Bhave as Madhav: He is the ideal prince charming, a typical middle class, Marathi boy, a perfect gentleman, quite handsome with a good heart.

Nirmiti Sawant as Aai: Aai is overly concerned about everything and everyone, especially for Meenaxi. She's naive and innocent but in a sweet way.

Satish Alekar as Baba: Baba smokes like chimney, a man of few words, intelligent, retired and mechanically sound. He is smart but very eccentric.

Jyoti Subhash as Aajji: She is the eldest member of the family. She is blind with an insight on the world, which makes her intrusive with a funny side. She has a great sense of humour and a special bond with Meenaxi. Aajji has dentures made of gold that will be given as trousseau to Meenaxi.

Amey Wagh as Nana: Nana is the most wise and exceptionally street smart person in the family. He is business minded and is shabby. He loves all his dogs, is rebellious, without a love life and hates his sister, Meenaxi.

Anita Date as Maina: She is a spaceship arrived in a village. She is poles apart from Meenaxi and most people around her. She is overly sexed up, she dresses like lady gaga and pulls it off with extreme confidence. She is very practical, does not have a love life yet love is only the physical act for her. She is a John Abraham fan and is obnoxiously loud.
