Whenever Mussaddilal Lal used to go to government office to get his work done, he would come back disappointed, as the government babus gave him various excuses for not doing his work. In the office, Usha ji was sometimes seen doing household chores, while Bhatiaji was only interested in having samosas. Moreover, Mussaddi also had to shed out money for getting his work done, but that too did not help.
The show attained such heights of popularity that it was followed by ‘Naya Office Office’
Later it culminated into a Bollywood film titled “Chala Mussaddi… Office Office.”
