Khichdi follows the story of the Parekhs, a Gujarati joint family. They encounter many typically Indian situations, but they try to solve it in the most atypical fashion imaginable. This is a funny bunch of people that is firmly united in their movement to get separated. But the head of their family does not agree. He gives them the choice to walk out and survive on their own; but nobody is ready to let go of the money that is due to them. So they stay together and wait for the 'head' to change his mind or stop breathing, whichever happens first. And this is where the middle class joint family faces its trials and tribulations. Khichdi is a look at the lighter side of an Indian joint family surrounding an old man, his good for nothing son, Praful and wife Hansa, widow daughter in law Jayshree and their children, Jackie and Chakki, who are the smartest of them all.
