Hasmukh Patel (Paresh Shah) is a shopkeeper who dreams of opening a supermarket. He is a widower who lives with his mother (Bharti Achrekar), the older daughter, Nimisha (Jinal Belani), and younger daughter, Pooja (Payal Ghosh). He is very orthodox in his thinking, is a teetotaller and does not approve of people eating non-vegetarian food or watching bold stuff on international television channels. He lives in an all-Gujarati housing society and runs his provision store in the same society.

A loud Punjabi family comprising Guggi Tandon (Rishi Kapoor), wife (Divya Seth Shah), son Monty (Vir Das) and father Prem (Prem Chopra) comes to live in the same society, having purchased the flat sold by a desperate Gujarati. Guggi’s family eats non-vegetarian food and consumes alcohol, leading to constant bickering between Hasmukh Patel and Guggi Tandon. While Guggi runs a motor garage in the same premises and also deals in second-hand cars, Hasmukh Patel is led into believing that the car business is just a front to cover up his connections with an underworld don in Dubai. Hasmukh begins to fear Guggi. By the by, Hasmukh’s fear of Guggi turns into friendship.

Meanwhile, Monty falls in love with Pooja, and she also reciprocates his love in spite of the fact that her dad hates Punjabis with a vengeance because of an incident in the past.Hasmukh Patel’s elder daughter, Nimisha, is due to get married to the son of a rich and conservative Gujarati (Tiku Talsania). On the day of the engagement ceremony hosted by Hasmukh Patel, Guggi arranges and pays for a dance troupe to generally add colour to the party. But the ultra-conservative father of the to-be groom is so disgusted with the dance that he calls off the marriage, holding Has­mukh Patel responsible for the ‘indecent’ song and dance.Hasmukh Patel holds Guggi responsible for the break-up of his daughter’s impending marriage and swears revenge. But Guggi tells the prospective groom’s father that Patel is innocent, and thereby saves the marriage. This eases the tension between Patel and Guggi to an extent.

However, all hell breaks loose when Monty asks Hasmukh Patel for Pooja’s hand in marriage. Hasmukh reveals why he can’t stand Punjabis and, therefore, would not agree to the liaison.What happens thereafter? Does Monty marry Pooja? Do Patel and Guggi makeup? Does Nimisha marry the same boy, after the break-up on the engagement day?
