About Star One Show : Hey... Yehii Toh Hai Woh!!! aired on Star One
What happens when a middle-class dreamer is suddenly mistaken by one of the richest families in the country to be their own son? And imagine the real successor of the family being forced to live in middle-class surroundings, owing to a loss of memory. This is the basic premise that the story of "Yehi Toh Hai Woh!" is based on.
Sameer Kamath, young man who works as a waiter in a small highway restaurant in Panvel has always dreamed of living life king-size. However, owing to circumstantial constraints and his own flirtatious personality, his dreams have always remained dreams Sameer lives with his mother Bhavna and younger sister Manju, and has a father Babu Kamath who is languishing in jail owing to his criminal deeds.
One day Sameer witnesses a road accident of a stranger who looks exactly like him. The injured look-alike is in fact Raj Thapar, the son of the super-rich Jaydev Thapar. However, owing to the accident, Raj loses his memory. Sameer tracks down Raj's house in the posh South Mumbai just so that he can return Raj's belongings that remained with him at the accident site. But he is instantly mistaken by one and all to be Raj himself.
At first Sameer tries to tell them the fact that he is not Raj, but slowly realising the high life that he is being offered, he decides to keep quiet and enjoy it while it lasts. Another reason for his playing along is that he is terribly, horribly attracted to Raj's pretty fiance Neha.
Meanwhile, Bhavna and friends have got the amnesic Raj to her house, mistaking him to be Sameer. All in the neighbourhood start to help Raj get back his lost memory in their own funny-yet-sincere ways. However, since Raj has actually never been there before, nothing really helps him.
At Thapar Villa, Sameer's middle-class upbringing and street-smart personality makes it difficult for him to blend in to the elite, refined surroundings. And unknown to him, he has enemies within his close circle - like Neha herself, who in fact had been planted in Raj's life by Raj's stepbrother Pran. But Sameer does hold on to his new life, and overcomes the obstacles slowly, with a little help from here and there.
As time goes by, Neha actually starts to fall in love with Sameer, causing great anxiety and insecurity to Pran.
Several other things unfold in the lives of Sameer and Raj, and keep the story more and more intriguing. For instance, Raj realises that he has had a rather wild past with women, and that he had an affair with Leena. As if by Providence, Sandeep - the cabbie boyfriend of Sameer's sister Manju - has a chance meeting with Raj's stepsister Shahana, leading to an affair that creates a string of interesting events that dangerously touch upon exposing the exchange of the look-alikes.
Soon, Sameer's father Babu Kamath comes out of jail and he is angered by Bhavna's close friendship with Shankar. Shankar still continues to be friends with Bhavna In the meantime, Babu Kamath gets murdered throwing everyone's life on a roller coaster ride... eventually we find out that Jaidev had actually killed Babu and unearth the truth that Raj-Sameer are Babu and Bhavna's twin children who were separated at birth as Babu had sold Raj to Jaidev.
More parallel tales entwine the saga of Sameer and Raj and their double lives, making 'Yehi Toh Hai Woh!' a surefire winner with super doses of emotion, comedy and thrill.
