Along with his young and unemployed son,Bunty,Mussaddi sets out on a pilgrimage to the four holy sites for the immersion of his wifes ashes. When pension officers arrive at Mussaddis house,his neighbour Mr. Gupta tells them that he has gone away,which the officials misinterpret as his death.
Mussaddi returns only to discover that he is dead according to government files. The situation turns comical when Mussaddi takes the law in his hands as the pension officers decide to swindle his pension money.
