Manas (Kapil Sharma) resides in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha with his wife Pratima (Shahana Goswami), son Kartik (Prajwal Sahoo), daughter Purbi (Yuvika Brahma) and his ailing mother (Shantilata Padhy). He used to work as a manager in a factory. The factory shut and after being jobless for 8 months, he takes up the work of a delivery rider for a food ordering and delivery platform called Zwigato. Every day, Manas leaves his house with the promise that he’ll complete 10 deliveries before coming home at night. However, he’s unable to do so every day. He realizes that the algorithm of the Zwigato app is such that he gets fewer orders after completing 7 deliveries in a day. Pratima, meanwhile, insists on working but Manas stops her from doing so. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
