Meet Bharat, the Aam Aadmi, part time cashier and part time "Hanuman" at Ramleela, residing in the city of Bhopal where he lives with his father Shivnarayan, an old timer who values freedom and hopes to see a corruption free administration in the country. Bharat is married to Nisha a schoolteacher, loving and caring but doubting wife concerned more about Bharat's promotion from cashier to manager at the bank than his flying tricks at the 'Ramleela'. The small and happy family lives with a forced upon guest Amita, a young, beautiful girl who works at a call center, forgets her ID at home and likes to hitch a ride with Bharat on his scooter when he is not busy dropping his wife at school. Did I forget to mention, Bharat drives a Scooter, the sidekick of this story.
Bharat wants to graduate from his role as 'Hanuman' to 'Lord Ram' someday which is being portrayed by Sattu Thripati, younger brother of MLA Manku Thripati, both having individual problems with him. Sattu, a bad actor is always unhappy that 'Hanuman' steals the show with his performance and Manku the MLA is unhappy over Bharat's refusal to let out his extra room to campaigning for his re-election. Adding Sugar on Spice is the fact that Bharat's father ShivNarayan befriends the opposing candidate Mohanlal and lets out the room to him for his campaign.
One night Hawaldar Parshuram Khushwaah comes knocking on Bharat's door informing him about the theft of a Table-fan from his household. Khushwaa orders Bharat to come at the small court where local panwala Bacchu Gulkand, will appear as witness to confess about skilled thief Chunnu Farishta's, actual confession about stealing the fan from his house much to Bharat's reluctance. At the court, firstly the witness fails to turn up, later the judge takes an unduly holiday and Bharat has to appoint a lawyer suggested to him by Chunnu recommended by Khushwaa. Somehow, Bharat manages to bribe his way from the cops to the criminals, from the witness to the lawyer and finally the judge to get his fan back.
Now the real act begins for Bharat here onwards, the ordinary fan of everyday usage meant at providing a cool breeze on hot days, turns his life into a metaphorical remark aimed at the system by making this part time cahier slash hanuman into the front page national news heard from lane to lane filled with thieves. How? Let's Find Out India.
