Needi Naadi Oke Katha tells the story of Sagar, a middle-class youngster who is pretty average in every sense of the word, and his struggle to live up to the lofty expectations of his father. Sagar has attended his graduation examinations three times. The third time he confidently thinks that he would clear the examination. He is the sort of the guy who doesn't care for education not because of negligence but because his mind is elsewhere. He knows his limitations.
On the day of the examination, he is to be reminded of the subject name, and he even couldn't remember where he placed his hall ticket. Such was the guy our Sagar is. Luckily he finds himself getting passed in the latest examinations to which he rejoices. But his happiness is shortlived as an unfortunate incident occurs which incurs the wrath of his father who values education as he is a teacher himself.
This leads Sagar to determine to make his father proud and he takes the help of the studious Dharmika. She introduces him to all the methods and techniques she follows and also takes him to the personality development classes conducted by a famous motivational speaker whose books are favorites for Dharmika.
All these don't help Sagar who falls into depression as he couldn't live a fake life. He wants to be a natural like his own self. How Sagar makes his father understand his feelings and if he could get the acceptance of his father form the rest of the story.
