The show explored the worlds of its protagonists Parvati and Om Agarwal, living in a Marwadi joint family where Parvati is an ideal daughter-in-law of Agarwal family and Om the ideal son. The show is the story of the sons of Vishwanath Agarwal and their children thereof. The show also had Ali Asgar who played the role of Kamal Agarwal, Anup Soni who played the role of Suyash Mehra, Shweta Kawatra/ Achint Kaur who played the role of Pallavi Agarwal as the major supporting cast.

Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii was dubbed in Sinhala language and broadcast on Sirasa TV.



Om Aggarwal (Kiran Karmarkar) is the son of reputed, rich and powerful businessman Vishwanath Aggarwal (Deepak Qazir Kejriwal). His sensible, polite wife, Parvati Aggarwal (Sakshi Tanwar) hails from a middle-class family and is the ideal daughter-in-law. Initially, Parvati was not strong willed enough to make her own decisions, but as time passes she becomes independent and undergoes major problems to protect her family. Parvati and Om have a daughter named Shruti.

The shows follows the various relationships of the four sons of the Aggarwal family. The youngest son, Kammal (Ali Asgar) helps his sister-in-law overcome her difficulties. He also starts an affair with his assistant, Nivedita, and impregnates her. Nivedita dies in childbirth after delivering a boy. The story follows how his wife Pallavi forgives his betrayal and raises Krishna as her own son.

The oldest, Ajay, is an established lawyer. He too begins an affair while his wife, Avantika, is pregnant. When he dies under mysterious circumstances, the murder is pinned on Om. Parvati is forced to choose between her beloved husband or the truth and eventually supports Avantika in indicting Om. However, it is revealed that Avantika was the true murderer and she is imprisoned while Parvati takes care of her daughter.

The show then has a 20 years leap, where it is revealed that Shruti is not Parvati's real daughter. Her real daughter, Gayatri, was exchanged with Shruti by mistake when riots broke out in the Gurudwara hospital where both were born. Parvati accepts both of them as her own daughters, but a fierce rivalry develops between the two. Shruti falls in love with Samir, but Gayatri marries him under false pretenses. After discovering the truth, Samir divorces her and plans to marry Shruti. But Gayathi declares she is pregnant and Om and Parvati's parenting skills are tested; Om supports Shruti and Samir. Parvati looks after a pregnant Gayatri and after delivering her child, Gayatri hands him to Parvati and leaves to America forever. Shruti and Samir name him Chotu (Ishaan).

As the story progresses, the narrative moves between discontinuous time periods. Eventually, Parvati succeeds in removing all hurdles from her and the Aggarwal family's life, and they live happily ever after.
