The story revolves around an upper middle-class Rajasthani joint family called the Kaushiks living in Jaipur. Bindeshwari Kaushik runs a tight ship at home with her husband, their five sons, and the wives of four of them. Her youngest son, Karthik, is the apple of her eye and falls in love with the carefree Lovely.

Kartik's older brothers - Utkarsh and Bittu - run the family-owned ration shop while Shivendu and his wife Simran are police officers. Aditya works separately after returning from London. Utkarsh's wife Gehna is obedient and submissive who spends most of her time managing the kitchen. Bittu's wife Nimmi is clear-hearted and cheerful while Aditya's wife Ria is still learning Mrs. Kaushik's rules having come from London. Lovely and Karthik are married under special circumstances after Lovely's insistence on being with Karthik at all costs. While giving in, Mrs. Kaushik refuses to accept her as a daughter-in-law. After many obstacles and a period of living in a divided house, Lovely is finally able to impress Mrs. Kaushik and win her trust. During this process, Lovely pretends to be a maid called Dulaari serving her mother-in-law and sisters-in-law and after the charade is over, she single-handedly helps Aditya and Ria save their marriage after Ria suffers a miscarriage.

A newly united Kaushik family suffers a shock when Simran dies in the line of duty. Over time, the family overcomes the loss and Shivendu remarries. His new wife, Karantiya, had lived with the Kaushik family and underwent a change of heart before they were married.

The story revolves around the troubles and the love in the Kaushik family and how they overcome obstacles in their way.
