This roller coaster ride begins with the Wealthy Mr. Beri slipping into his third Coma. His four estranged children have to make it back home to be there while their father ''hopefully'' breathes his last, leaving behind his huge estate in the mountains.

Pawan beri (Swanand Kirkire) the oldest child of Mr. & Mrs Beri is a hustler who is in big trouble with a local mafia don turned Politician. Rude brash and arrogant, he looks at everything from his own crooked view. Archana Beri- (Shilpa Shukla) is the wannabe socialite who wanted to participate in the Miss India contest but she got married against her will at a young age now she is desperate to enter the Mrs. India contest. She is bitter towards the entire world including her family. She bullies her meek husband Digvijay (Ninad Kamat) who in secret has a dual personality. Aman Beri (Kushal Punjabi) is the New York based son who returns with his American wife, Amy (Nora Fatehi) who meets the family for the first time. He pretends to be a top fashion photographer, but in reality he is struggling as an unemployed light boy. Abhay Beri/ Chotu (Siddharth Sharma) is the youngest in the family. Not much is known about his present status. Years ago he was sent to New Zealand to study, but never returned... well until now!

Along with the four siblings are a bunch of other unique and nutty characters like a village item girl, an extra slow family lawyer and 3 goofy investigators. The chaos begins when they discover that to open the will of their father they need to get 'Chotu' married. Set in a lush green, picturesque hill station, this story is about the dysfunctional 'Beri' family. A mad- caper but true to life, hilarious but emotional, fast paced yet heartwarming story of a family estranged for years, brought together by greed but eventually finding each other, finding the meaning in being a family.

Character Sketches:

Pawan Beri (Swanand Kirkire) is the eldest Beri offspring, an ambitious and obnoxious man whose motto in life is to earn quick money. He always envisioned himself as a businessman but this ambition leads him to being at the wrong end of a deal with a part time politician and a full time thug.

Archana Beri (Shilpa Shukla) wanted to participate in the Miss India contest but she was forced to marry instead. She now yearns to participate in the Mrs. India contest; but doesn't even have the money to pay for the entry round. She's feisty, unhappy and cynical - adding to the craziness of this loveable family.

Aman Beri (Kushal Punjabi) portrays himself to be a hot-shot photographer in USA, but in reality he's just a light boy. He returns to India to meet his ailing father, his American wife in tow; he too like the other siblings is in need for his share from their father's property.

Abhay Beri 'Chotu' (Siddharth Sharma) is the youngest sibling. He settled down in New Zealand after being sent there to study and has never returned home since. He is quiet, shy, and always dreamed of living a life isolated from his family. It's the love for money - more than the love for family that brings him back to this crazy household.
