Shyamal (Barun Chanda) is an ambitious Sales manager in a British fan manufacturing firm in Calcutta, where he is expecting a promotion shortly. He is married to Dolan, and lives in a company flat. He aspires to become the company director.

His sister-in-law, Tutul (Sharmila Tagore) arrives from Patna to stay with them for a few days. She is given a tour of the life they lead - in restaurants, beauty parlours, clubs and race courses. Tutul has been a great admirer of the ideologist Shyamal and was envious of her sister's marriage with him.

Life goes on smoothly for Shyamal until he learns that a consignment of fans meant for exports is defective just before the shipment of a prestigious export order and Shyamalendu is held to blame. He hatches a plan with the labour officer to provoke a strike at the factory. A factory watchman is badly injured and false riot is organised and a lock-out declared.

For his 'efficient' handling of the crisis, Shyamalendu is promoted and there is congratulations all around. However Shyamalendu has fallen in the eyes of both Tutul and himself. Shyamalendu is left at the top, successful - and desolate.
