Gutur Gu is based on a character named Balu a simple, innocent and super enthusiastic person who stays with his family consisting of his wife, parents and his grandmother. Each member of the family has an interesting role to play, right from being a television addict grandmother to a manipulative and demanding wife. The characters have been chosen from the best of all and possess an incredible gift for pantomime. The episodes feature a series of incidents and confusions that follow in everything that Balu does, as he invariably manages to get into misadventures. He also has a body builder neighbor who troubles and beats him up. However, Balu somehow succeeds to turn even mundane situations into indigenous adventures.
