Every Saturday and Sunday, viewers will see Bhade tackle a new socially relevant problem and the methods he uses to sail through it. The ultimate aim is to encourage the audiences to laugh their way to self-reflection and self -realization and that is what constitutes the key USP of this show.

It's this quality of his that makes him adorable! He adds, "The show highlights in a comical way the selflessness of this kind-hearted man who lives for others in a time and age when everyone is busy living only for them. Bhade, as he is fondly called, is 55 years old and does not only listen to your problem but also takes it upon himself. Whatever be the nature of the problem - self-esteem issues, bad habits, or physical troubles - he takes it on himself out of his sheer noble disposition without pondering much about the consequences or impact it might have on his own life or family! This usually leads to some troublesome, some hilarious situations in his personal life and work space. His good nature, empathy for fellow human beings will relay a positive and healthy message to the audiences without being preachy."

The primary targets are places like sabzi mandis, theaters, colleges, transit media and auto rickshaw branding. The sabzi section of Big Bazaar will have placards with whacky one-liners like we cannot reduce the price hike of Onions, but we will take away your problems'. The adverts in auto rickshaws will have lines like we cannot control the speeding meter but we will take away your stress.' At bus panels there will be lines like we cannot reduce the increasing bus fares, but we will take away your problems' and on Pole Kiosks there will be creative's like we cannot reduce the increasing traffic, but we will take away your problems.'
