This is a biopic of Kadambari Devi, the sister-in-law of Rabindranath Tagore, and daughter-in-law of Debendranath Tagore. Rabindranath's elder brother Jyotirindranath Tagore married Kadambari. In 1868 when Kadambari came to Jorasanko Thakur Bari Rabidranath was 7 years old and Kadambari was 2 years elder than Rabindranath. Very soon Rabindranath became Kadambari's friend and playmate. She inspired young Rabindranath in composing many of his poems and songs. On 9 December 1883, Rabindranath married Mrinalini Devi. Four months after the marriage on 21 April (1884), Kadambari committed suicide. The director captured these details, and specially the relationship between Kadambari and Rabindranath in this film.
