There mustn’t be a single middle class family in India who doesn’t dream about having a car. It’s considered to be a matter of prestige and gives a major ego boost in today’s society. Keeping the middle class family dream of owning a car as its central point, DO DOONI CHAAR touches upon several little things that affect our day-to-day life.It’s about our dreams and aspirations, corruption, values, father-son relationship, call centre generation and more. And most importantly, it does that with precision, without getting preachy.
Santosh Duggal (Rishi Kapoor) is a Delhi-based Mathematics school teacher who’s finding it so difficult to make ends meet that he even takes up a second job of teaching in a coaching class. His family comprises of a doting wife, Kusum Duggal (Neetu Kapoor), a college-going daughter, Payal Duggal (Aditi Vasudev) and a notorious son, Sandy Duggal (Archit Vasudev).
One fine day, Phupho, Santosh’s sister arrives from Meerut. She invites them to a wedding at her in-laws. The Duggals just start worrying about the expenses for the wedding when she states a lethal condition – the Duggals have to come by a car. Problem is, they don’t own one and can’t afford to buy one.
Somehow, after a lot of convincing, they manage to take their neighbour’s car for the wedding. On returning, the car is damaged and in a heated argument with his neighbours, Santosh promises to own a car within a couple of days. Thus begins a tumultuous ride as the Duggals are in hot pursuit of buying a car.
