The new Soumitra-Aparna film is a family drama that revolves around the lives of Salim Khan (Soumitra) and Madhuri Chattopadhyay (Aparna). The two were once in love but could not exchange wedding vows because of religious differences. The star-crossed lovers meet much later in life when both have lost their spouses. They decide to stay together for the rest of their life. Madhuri’s son Subrata (Bratya) opposes her mother’s decision but his wife Jayita (Arpita) supports her mother-in-law. She tries to convince her husband.
Anumita had earlier directed Soumitra in her debut film Jumeli.
