The show was based on the colony's culture and focuses on the Tendulkars' assimilation into it. Set in a Maharashtrian backdrop,. But Gujarati culture is also highlighted. It portrays and at times makes fun of gender roles in Indian culture. The Tendulkars' traditional-gender-role reversals are the subject of derision in the colony: since the colony members resist change in their comfortable lives, the arrival of the Tendulkar family upsets them as many of their set notions are challenged. In this way, the show implicitly embeds social commentary in its humour.
