Navendu borrows money to pay for Viju's education, who returns with an engineering degree from England. Navendru hopes that Viju will now share the financial burden, but Viju's high maintenance wife causes havoc in the peaceful house and insists on living separately. Their troubles mount when the money-lender demands his due. Meanwhile, Satyen who had staunchly opposed his uncompromising sister-in-law, falls in love with her sister. Will this family be able to stay together through this storm brought upon them?
