Its four years Tanu is married with Sharmaji (R. Madhavan) and a hilarious scene at mental asylum sets the tone of the future proceedings. Bickering, fighting and mia biwi quarrels leaves the viewer amused and the firangi doctors aghast as Tanu fumes words like ‘jhand’ (destroy), uddan choo (vanished) and all.. poor Sharmaji finds himself kept under cell for erratic behavior which actually was his complaint  against Tanu.
