Cast And Crew
Malini (Rituparna Sengupta is a photo-journalist specializing in stories that focus on the dead while Urmila Sanyal (Rati Agnihotri), a middle-aged, high-profile socialite, is a committed social worker who runs an NGO for oppressed women living in the margins of society. Malini idolises this woman she has not met and is bent on doing a photo-biography for the magazine she works with, the text to be given by Rajat (Ferdaus), her fiancé, the only scion of an extremely affluent family. Malini meets Urmila when she goes to photograph a young woman who has committed suicide because of the constant physical and mental abuse her husband subjected her to. The dead girl had come to Urmila’s NGO for help. Urmila forces the attending police officer to arrest the husband. A fascinated Malini decides to capture Urmila in her multi-faceted persona as a happy wife, a successful social activist and a celebrity in the social circuit, on camera. As the two-way process between the photographer and her subject begins, a sense of bonding is created between the two. But Rajat is so embroiled in his father’s business that he just cannot get down to write the textual complement to Malini’s photographic story on Urmila. Malini goes about her work on her first ‘live’ subject, and discovers that all that she captures on camera are not what they appear to be.

She opens up a hornet’s nest when she announces her decision to keep the child inspite of tremendous pressure on her by her mother (Alokananda Roy), her scheming brother (Dipankar De) and Rajat. With her back to the wall, she now turns to Urmila and is shocked when she too, says that she ought to abort the unborn child...
