A random incident is going to change his life in a dramatic way, though he does not realize it at the moment. Bauji’s daughter has been seeing a boy of ill repute. When that fact is revealed to the family, after much deliberation, they decide to do the obvious, lock up the girl and go beat the willful boy. It is a funny old journey of this man, who decides that he will only believe what he sees with his eyes moving forward.
