Murari Lal Bansal (Anup Upadhyay) is a lehenga shop owner in Chandni Chowk, Delhi who lives with his nagging wife Karuna, (Soma Rathod), and a free-spirited and outspoken daughter, Elaichi (Hiba Nawab). Half of the Chandni Chowk is infatuated by Elaichi but she considers them unsuitable for her. Rebellious Elaichi has several tricks up her sleeve. She continues to go to school by intentionally flunking each year in eleventh standard but passed in her fifth attempt and now is in twelfth standard, even at the age of 23, to avoid living the grown-up life and dodging marriage.
The twist in the tale comes when Murari rents out his rooftop room/ 'barsati' to Pancham (Nikhil Khurana), a 24-year-old boy from Agra who aspires to be a music director. Pancham moved to Delhi with his best friend, Pintu (Harveer Singh), both of whom have limited resources to bank on. To make his ends meet, he ends up working in Murari's shop as an assistant. Since Murari is principally determined to not rent his 'barsati' (room on Rooftop) to bachelors, Pancham fakes about being married and disguises Pintu, as a woman posing as his wife. However, Elaichi figures out what is going on and takes an instant liking of Pancham's mild and innocent behavior.
The story goes on from here as Pancham tries to balance his dream of becoming a music director, his work and concealing his wife's 'secret', whereas Elaichi constantly flirts with Pancham and teases him with jokes and pranks, while Murari tries to control his daughter's behavior in the most unsuccessful of ways.
Elaichi tells Pancham and Pintu that she knows Pintu is a boy and not Pancham's wife. She then marries with Pancham unknowing to her father Murari but with the consent of her grandmother.
Then, Elaichi, Pancham, Pintu and Sunita solve the day to day problems faced by them due to Elaichi's marriage to Pancham but in one of Elaichi's pranks, Pancham and Pintu are thrown out of the house and shop by Murari.
After that, Pancham and Pintu return, disguised as siblings, Sanjana Kohli and Sanjeev Kohli to rent the house and shop again on the advice of Elaichi.
Chatanki and Sanjana aka Pancham get married in a fake marriage but due to increase in problems for Elaichi and Pancham after this, Elaichi plans to run away Sanjana and Sanjeev so that Pancham and Pintu can return in their original getup.
After this, Pancham and Pintu return to the house after being forgiven by Murari but due to an Electric shock Pancham lost his memory and did not recognize Elaichi as his wife.
Now, it is another uphill task for Elaichi to make Pancham fall in love with her again.
