The movie is about a boy called Vashu. His parents are Dr. Amit and Anita, an airhostess by profession. However, Vashu is an unhapy child. He has a unique habit of covering his ears. His classmates tease him and call him 'Gandhiji's monkey'.
His friend Tanya is the only person who wants to understand the reason behind his peculiar action. Vashu tells her that the moment he removes his hands from his ears, he starts hearing his parents fighting and the noise is unbearable. Besides Tanya, Vashu's only other friend is his new maid, Gangu Tai.
Vashu wants to enter the dance competition in school. Gangu Tai promises to teach him, but Rocky, his classmate, bullies him and breaks his music CD. Gangu Tai consoles a crying Vashu saying that if he prays to Lord Ganesha, he will definitely help him. Gangu Tai tells Vashu the story of Lord Ganesha and how he helped his friend Mushak Raj (the rat) when he was in trouble.
Gangu Tai reassures Vashu that if he befriends Ganesha and promises to bring him home during the Ganapati festival, then Lord Ganesha will also help him win the dance competition. As Vashu befriends Lord Ganesha and brings him home, not only does he win the dance competition but all his other problems also are solved.
However, he also learns that Ganesha helps those who help themselves.
