When was the last time you saw something – on a window display, on Amazon.com, in the flight magazine – and told yourself, "Someday, I'll buy that!" Santosh Duggal fights that battle almost every day! His animated family's needs far surpass his paycheck. After all, how much does an average Indian school teacher make? Probably 3 fancy dinners at the Marriott. But they are happily living in their little middle class Delhi paradise.
And then one day, arrives Phupho, Duggal's 'little' sister from Meerut. She is here to invite them to a wedding at her in laws and give them an ultimatum. They have to come by a car. The only problem is that the Duggals don't own a car. Phupho's solution? "Khareed lo!"
There is too much of Phupho's pride at stake to cancel going to the wedding. So the Duggal's gear up for their first big purchase in years. The piggy banks are emptied, the PF is encashed, a loan is in the offering, new hiding places in the house are found, where everyone discreetly kept their savings... and secrets. But the real battle lines are drawn within the house. The four of them can't seem to agree on anything – the car, the make, the colour... Like Payal says, "Hamaare ghar par discussions aise hi hote hai!" A mad journey ensues. After putting together all their resources, there is one big hole that remains to be filled. And then comes a gigantic lurking temptation. An easy way out... Will they take it?
Do Dooni Chaar will revive your memories of your own family's story. It is the story of the middle class man and his tireless endeavor in coping with the fast, new 'India Shining'. It's funny, real and heart warming. We all have our own scooter to car tales. We are all our own Duggal. Do Dooni Chaar makes us see the Duggal in us with the rare chance to laugh at ourselves.
