In a portion of a house in a by-lane in Kolkata (Kinu Goalar Gali), a recently bankrupt (share market crash) family arrives. Father (Pahadi Sanyal), Mother (Lilabati), Son (Prashanta Kumar?), Daughter in law (Gita Dey) and unmarried college going daughter (Sharmila). The other occupant of the home is a family of two, a writer husband Moni (Kali) and his neglected wife Shanti (Sumitra). There is a regular visitor to their home, Indrajit (Soumitra) a similarly poor, budding poet, a rebel type unlike conformist Moni. To avoid the demands of the wife, as well as family, Moni pushes his wife towards his friends including Indrajit. People observe and gossips start. Moni feels jealous, but isn't bothered enough to put a stop. He meanwhile becomes relatively successful, in writing dramas for a theatre company, and the glitz makes him move further away from his wife. To fuel his jealousy, and to bring him back to her, she pretends an affair with Indrajit. Will she finally really succumb to ... Written by S Basu
