About Mrs Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein
Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuyien is a light hearted family drama of an elaborate joint middle class family and its strict and disciplinarian mother.
As the formidable matriarch of a joint Rajasthani family, she has rather ably held the reins of her household, made the most significant decisions in the lives of her husband, her five sons and four daughters-in-law.
The story begins with Mrs. Bindeshwari Kaushik's search for the fifth bahu for her youngest son. According to her, an ideal bahu is one who should be an amalgamation of the elements of nature (fire, water, air, space & earth) akin to the virtues represented by her other four loving, honest and obedient daughters-in-law.
Enter Lovely - a free-spirited, fun-loving, beautiful young girl who believes in making her own rules rather than following anybody else's. Lovely thinks it's perfectly acceptable to lie in order to help someone! Quick in her thinking, she can spin a yarn at the snap of a finger but her lies are harmless and never intended to hurt anybody's sentiments.
What ensues is a light-hearted family drama that follows Lovely's journey into Bindeshwari's heart despite their distinctly different approaches towards life.
