His wife Madhuri (Shweta Tripathi), son Krish, and parents Gangaprasad Pandey (Piyush Mishra) and Saraswati Pandey (Alka Amin) are tired of Jamuna's frugal ways. He never wastes a single rupee, from allocating one bucket per person for bathing to using one agarbatti throughout the month.
The family later learns that he was saving up money to send his parents on a pilgrimage. But as his parents go missing and the government announces compensation for their family, Jamuna Prasad loses his cool after the middlemen siphon off a portion of the compensation. Upset over such injustice, he decides to revolt against the corrupt system.
The plot revolves around Jamuna Prasad Pandey, who is known as a miser throughout the entire town of Deoria, Uttar Pradesh. Even his family is fed up with his penny-pinching habits. However, it is later revealed that he did it so he could send his parents on a Char Dham Yatra.
