A young boy is highly interested in dancing craft and in fact is a prodigy in it. For the father the inclination of his son is nothing but a sacrilege to the family customs. He thinks dancing for a man deems him to be a gay. The clash between the father and son seems initially to be the main theme which is proved wrong as the story progresses. This is nothing but a prelude. The main story is about a woman can understand a man in it's entirety only after becoming a man and the vice-versa. This seemingly impossible sort of storyline is made possible through an accident of electric shock by touching the faulty vacuum cleaner. After this, though the bodies of the father and mother remain same but their natures take a sexual U-turn respectively. It really creates a lot of humour in this bizarre situation. Their son, daughter and son-in-law are in complete astonishment and somehow bear it. The trunk of the comedy play carries the situation on and let the varying events happen in the same circumstances. The ultimate result is that both of the senior couple who used to quarrel with each other on trifles now develop a much deeper bond and appreciation for their life partner.

Ashok Saraf is a well known cine actor and Nirmite Saavaant is also a virtuoso. Both acted remarkably as the senior couple but Nirmite in her sterling masculine gait and demeanors was an utter amusement for the viewers. The son's modern dance was on full-fledged display and it was so fantastic that one may like to go to the theatre just for watching that.

The play was produced by Asthtvinayak and written and directed by Chinmay Mandlekar. The actors other than Ashok Saraf and Nirmite Saavaant were Tanvi Palav, Mousami Todavalkar, Sagar Khedekar and Prathamesh Cheulkar. Light scheme was of Ravi Rasik and Music by Rahul Ranade. And the impressive dance was directed by Phulwa Khamkar.
