As a result of his worries, he decides to quit his job in an attempt to seek another which might pay him more than Sonia's salary. In spite of all his efforts he doesn't find the job he desires for.
As he comes across an advertisement which promises to pay ₹25000 per month for those who can adopt an elderly person from an old age home, he chooses to adopt a woman, played by 'Chemmeen' Sheela, as ₹25000 is higher than his wife's salary. But things do not go according to his plans once he adopts Sheela and at one stage he is forced to give up on his newly adopted mother.
Will Vivek realize the contribution of an elderly person to a family or will he drive Sheela out of his house forms the crux of the story which has been narrated with abundance of comedy.
