Interspersed with humour, this thought-provoking social drama follows the fluctuating fortunes in the life of Ram Avtar, a barber in a small village. He is a widower, who comes from a lower-middle-class family and leads a simple lifestyle.
His sister-in-law, Sushma, looks after him and his kids. Ram Avtar cuts, shaves, and grooms all males in his village, including Minister Digvijay Singh. When Digvijay's political party is in need of someone to stand in the forthcoming election, Digvijay recommends Ram Avtar as his choice.
Ram Avtar accepts this challenge, and then begins the race of getting votes. To his surprise, he wins, and goes on to become a Member of the Legislative Assembly. Sushma watches from the sidelines as to how the changes affect this simple-minded and straight-forward barber. What will the future hold in store for Ram Avtar?
