At the forefront are these two characters. The father-Biren who is a failed lawyer from a traditional family , doesn’t have a single client(the only client is a distant relative with whom he is having an affair), he mentions Manu(the then CM Siddharta Shankar Ray) at the drop of a hat without knowing him, his wife is an alcoholic , he can’t afford his son’s fees and he want to see his son to be a barrister as he wants to realize his own dreams through his son . The son-Ranodeep ,a confused character who is caught between his parents, his sister runs away with a Naxal , but he sure wants to know what he wants to do-become an actor. This causes the rift between the father and the son. Also the age of the son is an age of innocence, of growing up, of the first kiss, of experimenting with several things including marijuana and alcohol. Yet he connects with his long lost grandfather who comes back one day out of the blue because he plays the violin himself and had aspired to be a conductor of an orchestra and so understands Rono’s feelings and wants him to achieve his dreams . However this feeling of happiness is short lived. Biren is completely lost and he breaks down one day when his daughter and son-in-law come to visit him. Biren is completely lost and he breaks down one day when his daughter and son-in-law come to visit him. He later on has a cerebral attack and becomes a vegetable (well in a way). The son is slowly on his way of realizing his dreams by this time.
