Non-resident Bengali Radhika (Bipasha Basu) marries the thespian poet Indranil Mitra (Prosenjit Chatterjee) to settle in Kolkata. While Indranil continues his surveillance of the surreal world of words, rhythms, rhymes, and imaginations Radhika single-handedly pulls out the private and public aspects of conjugal life. Radhika gets wholesome support from their housemaid Priyobala Das (also called Nondor ma). While the apparently irresponsible and introverted Indranil does one menace after other (like quitting his job after getting an award), Radhika stands like a rock to make the family financially sound.

All the reluctance and indifference from Indranil makes Radhika's heart oscillate towards Shekhar, her office colleague and Indranil's biggest admirer. Radhika becomes attracted to Shekhar (Jisshu Sengupta) but cannot abandon the unpredictability and histrionics of her spouse.[citation needed]
