Parambrata has been cast as slum dweller Bishu, while Gaurav Chakrabarty will be seen as a poet named Abesh in the film. One day, they witness a person commit suicide by jumping in front a speeding bus, as a last resort to escape starvation. Bishu and Abesh are shaken by the incident. But Bishu strikes upon an idea. Since he is fired from every job, Bishu hatches a plan to earn quick money by jumping in front of running cars, pretend to be seriously injured, and demand money from the passengers. Abesh quits writing poetry and starts to make a film on Bishu and soon the story takes a different turn.
