Nikhil's wife Bimla is swept off her feet by Sandip's charisma and lively charm, which is in sharp contrast to her own husband's calm sobriety. Sandip, attracted to Bimala, decides to make Suksayar the centre of his political activity. Nikhil realizes what has happened. He knows that Sandip is driven more by a lust for power than any genuine patriotic motive...
