Shashi Godbole (Sridevi) is a middle-aged Maharashtrian housewife who earns some money by making and selling laddoos. She is a dedicated homemaker who is taken for granted by her family. She is ridiculed for her poor English by her husband, Satish (Adil Hussain) and teenage daughter, Sapna. Shashi is the object of potshots by Satish, who has little respect for her real talent and Sapna, her 7th grade daughter who is ashamed to even introduce her mother to her school folks and teachers because her English is weak. However, her young son Sagar loves her as she is.
