On the day the Zanzibar chacha comes to Poona, same day Dr.Chaudhary escapes from the asylum and they get mixed up.

Annasaheb’s(S.N.Banerji) house is a madhouse already. His wife Sumati(Durga Khote) is very fond of western culture, fashion and is learning classical music from a Madrasi Teacher(Dhumal) who stays in this house only, the elder son Vasant(Rajan) is fond of Races, Daughter Uma(Shashikala) is learning dance and music from a Dance Master Chandranath(Kamal Mehra), who stays in this house only and finally the youngest son is fond of machines and contineously repairs machines.There is a cook and food is prepared separately for each person.Poor Annasaheb is a sad person.
