Synopsis:
The two middle-aged daughters of Bhagabati (Madhabi Mukherjee) gather with their families in their old home to celebrate Durga Puja. But what seems like a celebration is in fact a seething cauldron of family tensions as each daughter brings along her own baggage of problems. Parul (Mamta Shankar), the eldest daughter sees a possible repeat of her own tragic past as she watches her elder son Joy (Ratul Ghosh) attracted to her niece Shampa. Bhagabati's younger son Asit faces the possibility of losing his job after the Puja, something he doesn't want his wife to know.
Parul's younger sister Keya (Rituparna Sengupta) has a 3-year old marriage that is already floundering because of her husband Arun's (Prosenjit Chatterjee) alcoholism. Add to this the old tensions between the sisters simmering over the years and when the fact that an offer has been made to buy Bhagabati's house comes to light, it brings with it the issue of how the very tidy profit should be divided. The cauldron threatens to boil over... Will Bhagabati's family come apart or will the blessings of the Goddess prevail and heal the rifts, old and new?
