Patte Khul Gaye is a story of Dr. Manoj Rai (Anant Mahadevan) and his wife Manju Rai (Roopali Ganguli) who have invited their close group of friends for dinner. Manju has planned a sumptuous menu for the past three days and an elaborate dinner has been prepared for this much-awaited evening. With their very old friend ‘Bob’ comes along an affluent lady ‘Shireen’ (Kishwar Merchant) who is extremely rich and does not belong to the middle-class strata, like the rest of them.Within no time lots of masks start falling off and embarrassing secrets of one and all start tumbling out to the fore. The ultra-rich Shireen exposes the middle-class values and hypocrisies of the others and condescendingly exposes their pitiable condition. She also tells them how the middle class is always showing off what it has and hiding under the carpet what it does not! The lady of the house Manju refuses to buy this argument and takes Shireen head-on and strongly defends the great Indian middle class.
Unexpected situations start arising and the poor hostess Manju who has toiled for three days for this dinner is unable to even serve the starters as the dinner and the party goes for a toss. To top it all one of the guests “Akela” (Rakesh Bedi) who is a poet comes out with a funny couplet at the drop of a hat, to ease tense moments. Laced with hilarious situations “Patte Khul Gaye” is an unbelievable comic journey full of unpredictable twists and turns that is sure to leave you in splits! “Patte Khul Gaye” is a must-see laugh riot and is guaranteed to entertain audiences of all ages.
