Directed by Naseeruddin Shah, it is a series of three short stories by the famous Urdu writer Ismat Khanum Chughtai -- Mughal Bacche, Chhui Muee and Gharwali

Gharwali by Naseeruddin Shah
Naseeruddin Shah brings up the finale with his tongue-in-cheek, mischievous narration of 'Gharwali.' With ease he slips in and out of different characters. It is a half-hour of sheer delight watching the actor brings Ismat's pungent, ironic prose alive.

Mughal Bacche by Ratna Pathak Shah
Set in the period following the decline of the Mughals, the story talks about their so-called successors, the landed gentry of Uttar Pradesh. Unable to come to terms with the decline in their fortunes, the story makes a wry comment on the social setup while interweaving a love story. Ratna Pathak brings out the wry irony underlying the love story very effectively.

Chhui Muee by Heeba Shah
'Chhui Muee' told by Heeba Shah talks of an incident of childbirth witnessed by three upperclass women in a train compartment. Fascinated and deeply affected by the incident, the three women react in different ways.
