After obtaining his B.A. degree, which was considered quite an achievement in those days, Anoop was returning to his village. He was poetic by temperament and was in high spirits as he arrived after a long boat journey. He slipped on the muddy bank, when peels of feminine laughter greeted him.
This was Minoo (Mrinmoyee), a carefree and irrepressible girl living with her mother in the same village. Her poor old father was working as a petty clerk at Kushiganj. The pranks of the tomboyish Minoo, leader of a small gang of boys, had earned her notoriety. Anoop tried to retrieve his honour from this discomfiture by putting up a bold face, and finally reached home. The story is a journey from here to the complex twist of destiny that takes places for all the characters in the movie.
