Summary
Mrs. Sethi (Shabana Azmi) is a widow living in Southall who wants to marry off her only daughter, for she is alone and unhappy. Her daughter, Roopi, (Goldy Notay) is a little plump and opinionated. Mrs. Sethi finds that all her matchmaking efforts to find a suitor for Roopi are rudely rejected. She avenges this behavior toward her daughter by killing off the failed dates using her culinary skills. A police hunt begins for a serial murderer using a killer curry. Mrs. Sethi does not feel guilty until the spirits of her victims come back to haunt her. They are unable to be reincarnated until their murderer dies. Mrs. Sethi must kill herself to free the spirits, but vows to get her daughter married off before this. The spirits realize that helping Roopi find a suitable husband before the police catch Mrs Sethi is in their best interests, and everyone begins to work together. Meanwhile, Roopi catches the eye of the young Sergeant investigating the case
