In a departure from his usual, dark brooding image, he will be seen as the much harried and hassled Bhagwan Das - a middle-aged, middle-class man based out of Kanpur, constantly torn between his personal and professional life. Forever bullied either by his wife and father at home or his boss in the office, Bhagwan Das is always at the receiving end of flak. His kids are ashamed that he works as a salesman at 'Titu Underwear and Baniyan' and his wife constantly compares him to their neighbor who is better off in life. Stuck in a rut, Bhagwan Das vents his anger in a unique and funny manner. He hangs a picture of whoever has misbehaved with him on any given day on a tree outside his house and pelts stones at it. One day, while he is busy letting out his frustration at the tree, a smartly dressed man carrying a Blue umbrella emerges from within the tree... a man only he can see... a man who embodies God!'Neeli Chhatri Wale' is a light-hearted drama highlighting Bhagwan Das and his relationship with Lord Shivaye who emerges in front of him - not as the hallowed, much revered avatar but as a young, smart, contemporary youth wielding a blue umbrella. Catch Bhagwan Das on a journey of listening to his inner voice through conversations with God..
