This emotionally charged relationship drama follows a woman, who is summoned to her father's lawyer on her 21st birthday and learns that her ill-will towards him was unfounded. Why was her father forced to abandon his wife and child?
Evocative and eloquent, this thought-provoking relationship drama delves into deep concepts like innocence, greed, responsibility and forgiveness, that are highlighted through the life of Soumya, a city-based doctor.
On her 21st birthday, Soumya's daughter Disha is called for an appointment with her father's friend, advocate Tridib Mukherjee and subsequently learns that the strong resentment she had harboured for her father were unfounded. Realising that her mother had not revealed the whole truth of why her father had been forced to abandon her, she reminisces over her childhood.
As a young girl, Disha had joined her parents on a trip to Bakulpur, her father's ancestral village. Each of them is in a different frame of mind – Disha wishes to enjoy the vacation; Soumya wishes to relive his past and give back to his community; and her mother Tithi has only one desire, to sell her husband's ancestral properties to the highest bidder in order to purchase a grand mansion in the city.
Soumya, upon meeting his friends after seven long years, breaks free from the shackles of his cocooned urban life and relives old memories. The lack of medical facilities in the village upsets him and being a doctor he decides to open a hospital in the village by donating his ancestral house for this purpose.
However, Tithi is dead against the idea. Soon, her treatment of people extremely close to Soumya causes severe physical and emotional trauma, with tragic consequences.
Kakababu, the old, loyal and well-respected caretaker of the family-property feels humiliated when Tithi accuses him of enjoying the property and offers him ‘commission’ for getting the property sold-off. Kakababu leaves the house in despair and dejection. Soumya’s school-friend Hari, now insane, is beaten up by Tithi for coming close to her daughter, which proves fatal for him. Soumya, the sole witness to the incident holds Tithi responsible for it. Mashi, the poor, elderly and caring housemaid with motherly affections for Soumya, already tormented by the village moneylender becomes the natural suspect for Tithi when her expensive gold necklace goes missing. She is subjected to accusations and is almost strip-searched. Eventually Tithi finds the necklace in her makeup box, but by then it is too late - Mashi’s young daughter has sacrificed herself by marrying her mother’s tormentor - the moneylender, in return for money to pay-off the cost of the necklace and save the honour of her innocent mother. How will Disha's changed attitude towards her father influence her life?
