Baa Bahoo Aur Baby is made by Aatish Kapadia and JD Majethia (of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai and Instant Khichdi fame). It presents the hues of life packed with high emotions, temperaments, idiosyncrasies of real people and even more real situations.
This is the story of Godavari Thakker and her family consisting of 6 sons, 2 daughters and their spouses and children. Godavari who hails from a very rich family, lives in her father's huge mansion, given to her by her brothers who are settled in America. She is married to Labhshankar Thakkar, an alcoholic, whose passion for art and theatre makes him a patron of art, but a good for nothing in the eyes of his wife.
The authoritative matriarch, has worked very hard to raise her 8 children and is very proud of her achievement, she never misses to flaunt. She strongly believes that either you can rule the kitchen or rule the office. She of course prefers the kitchen, her own familiar world, and rules it with iron hands.
Godavari's family and its problems are no different from any middle class family residing in this busy city of Mumbai. While the men are at work, (theirs is no family business) the women are busy doing their bit to run the house and also win over the goodwill of their Baa (mother-in-law).
