Afsar a family drama takes a humorous look at love, marriage, and employment.
Jaspal (Tarsem Jassar) is a senior government official in love with Harman (Nimrat Khaira) a school teacher. Jaspal on paper is the ideal son-in-law material, good looking, caring and with the ability to financially support Harman. The only problem is Harman's dad wants a son in law who holds the position of a Patwari (lower government officer) because he believes that post has more status and power.
Jaspal and Harman are confused with the situation and realize the only way their marriage will go ahead is if Jaspal is demoted to the lower position of a Patwari.

But when Jaspal is accused of being unfaithful, Harman angrily agrees to marry a man of her father's choice. Jaspal is now left in a quandary: does he prove his innocence to Harman or fulfill her father's wish of becoming a Potwari? Most importantly will he end up marrying Harman?
