BANJARA GUEST HOUSE is a situational comedy serial which revolves around all the characters that come in contact with the Guest House, whether they are employed, house guests or visitors. Situated in the suburbs of Mumbai, this guest house has not been spared the rigors of fast-pace that anything connected with a Metropolis involves. And this invariably leads to a collision – whether intentional or otherwise – between those involved as their lives are intricately entangled from the proximity of living together, thus leading to chaos, confusion and many a hilarious faux pas.
