The characters from the first film now have children, who have managed to get into the same situation as their parents many years ago. However, this story is not simply a remake of the original movie. Firstly, all of Lukashin's adventures were accidental, whereas here everything is done according to a plan thought up by Pavlik (a friend of Lukashin's). His idea is to help his friend Evgeniy with his loneliness. To this end, he dispatches Lukashin's son Kostya to Petersburg, where he acts in the same manner as his father 30 years ago. In flat 12 he meets Nadejda (who is actually the daughter of Nadejda from the first movie). She has a fiancé called Irakliy, a businessman. Kostantin's task is to lure Iracliy away from the flat, then wait for Nadejda's mother to come; he then makes her call Evgeniy Lukashin. Pavlik persuades Evgeniy to go to St. Petersburg. The plot becomes a story of two fights over a woman: Konstantin vs. Irakliy and Evgeniy vs. Ippolit. Finally Lukashins win the competition, because Irakliy turns out to be too dull for Nadya and Nadejda understands that she was never in love with Ippolit.

The film is set in 1980s Moscow. Standing right in the city centre on Kalinin Prospekt, a barefoot man dressed in a tattered coat appeals to anyone with a strange request: "Tell me the number of your planet in the tenture? Or least the number of your galaxy in the spiral?". Random passers-by, two Soviet citizens previously unknown to each other ("Uncle Vova", a gruff construction foreman from Moscow, Vladimir Mashkov, and a "Violinist", a student from Georgia, Gedevan Aleksidze), start a conversation with him, during which the stranger shows them an alien teleportation device – "traveller". The foreman Mashkov holds out his hand to the device and, despite the stranger's warnings, presses a random button. Suddenly Uncle Vova and the violinist find themselves alone on the desert planet "Pluke" in the "Kin-dza-dza" galaxy. From that point on, the movie describes their long quest to find a way back home.

The key subplot is the drab uniformity of Brezhnev era public architecture. This is made explicit in a humorous animated prologue, in which architects are overruled by politicians and red tape. This results in the entire planet being polluted with identical, unimaginative multistory apartment buildings of the sort that can, in fact, be found in every city, town, and suburb across the former Soviet Union. These buildings are uniform right down to the door key of each apartment. The rest of the film is live-action.

By accident, he sends Ivan Vasilevich Bunsha (Yuri Yakovlev), superintendent of his apartment building, and George Miloslavsky (Leonid Kuravlev), a small-time burglar, back into the time of Ivan IV "The Terrible".

At the same time, the real Ivan IV (also played by Yuri Yakovlev) is sent by the same machine into Shurik's apartment, he has to deal with modern-day life while Shurik tries to fix the machine so that everyone can be brought back to their proper place in time. Superintendent Bunsha and Tzar Ivan IV the Terrible are lookalikes but have completely different personalities, which results in funny situations of mistaken identity. As the police (tipped off by a neighbor who was burgled by Miloslavsky) close in on Shurik, who is frantically trying to repair the machine, the cover of Bunsha and Miloslavsky is blown and they have to fight off the Streltsy, who have figured out that Bunsha is an impostor.

Le film de Youli Karassik reprend les principales lignes de l'œuvre de Tchekhov. L'action se déroule au bord d'un lac dans la propriété de Sorine : ses convives s'apprêtent à assister à la représentation d'une pièce écrite par son neveu, Treplev. L'interprète principale, c'est Nina Zaretchnaïa, dont est éperdument amoureux Treplev. Parmi les invités, des personnalités célèbres comme la mère de Treplev, l'actrice Irina Arkadina, et l'écrivain Boris Trigorine, tous deux amants… Pour Nina comme pour Treplev le spectacle revêt une importance considérable, car, tous deux, rêvent d'une belle carrière. Mais, les spectateurs sont distraits, et Arkadina parle, à voix basse, de décadence. Blessé dans son orgueil, Treplev interrompt la représentation… Ensuite, Treplev, se sentant humilié et déconsidéré, dépose une mouette qu'il vient d'abattre aux pieds de Nina et lui annonce : « Je me tuerai de la même façon. » (Acte II) Plus tard, l'écrivain Trigorine, serrant son carnet, séduit Nina et confesse à la jeune femme : « Un sujet me vient à l'esprit... celui d'un petit conte : au bord d'un lac vit depuis son enfance une jeune fille... telle que vous. Elle aime ce lac comme une mouette, comme une mouette elle est heureuse et libre. Mais un homme arrive, par hasard, et, par désœuvrement, la fait périr, comme on a fait périr cette mouette. » C'est, peu après, la séparation, les adieux, en oubliant les discordes avec le gérant. Deux ans plus tard, on se retrouve dans la même demeure. Treplev habite encore là. Celui-ci est, à présent, un écrivain reconnu.
