Suddenly her house is filled with movie stars and glamorous people, including the beautiful actress Sudeshna and charming director Deepankar. Though she knows that not only is Deepankar married but that his former lover Sudeshna still holds a torch for him, the lonely widow finds herself drawn to the director. He is exactly the sort of worldly character whom she has always longed to meet. The rakish man flirts back and even persuades Banalata to appear in a bit part in the movie.
