75 years old Biswanath Majumdar was in the publishing business. His wife, Arati, was 66 years old and they had been married for the past 49 years. Over the years, they were blessed with four children- the eldest being their son, followed by three more daughters, all of them now married and well- settled. Like most couples, Biswanath and Arati had adjusted to each other’s whims and foibles, and lived a compatible life. On the night of ‘Dashami’, in front of the gathered family, Biswanath Majumdar drops a bombshell. He declares that he has decided to finally divorce his wife, their mother, Arati. But why after so many years? However hard the children tried, they could not elicit any information, regarding this matter, from their father, while their mother seemed most unconcerned with the development. Biswanath files a divorce case. What happens in the court where both Biswanath & Arati were required to make their appearance with their respective lawyers? What led Biswanath to take such a drastic decision? Did Arati, finally, raise her voice against this injustice? Do the couple, finally, get divorced after 50 years of married life? All these questions and many more forms the crux of this iconic film.
