Do you want to know the story? If you want to, please try to follow if you can.
Rama (Priyanka) is the daughter of DIG of Police (Arun Banerjee) of West Bengal who always wears white Calcutta traffic Police costume. Shubho (Rahul) is the only son of his widow mother who is the bread earner of the family. Rama has a boyfriend Rocky who believes in pre-marital sex but Shubho who loves her believes in love first.
Rama’s parent and Rocky’s parent arrange their marriage before they come out from college. But before that in the college function Rama was forced to act in a play with Shubho as Rocky fell ill like Uttam and Suchitra did in “Saptapadi” and not like them Shubho only fell in love with Rama. He made many nonsense acts to stop their marriage.
Sorry, I have forgot to mention about Shubho’s friend Selim (Rudranil)who drives taxi in Kolkata. Selim once promised to Shubho’s mother that he would arrange a marriage between Rama and Shubho. When he saw Rama was about to marry Rocky, he and Shubho kidnapped Rama applying chloroform, which they easily bought it from nearly chemist’s shop where Rama and Rocky was marketing for their marriage.
They eloped Rama to North Bengal, may be by train. DIG father alerted all the police station of north Bengal. The police officer found them while he was searching them from a helicopter. He sent police force to catch them, but the force faced a strong opposition from a Chimpanzee. Actually that was Selim in disguise. Now at this point the film the circus of love completes a whole circle. Before that a few all-fat dancers have entertained us with their dance-number. Do you know why they were dancing, because the marriage of Rama and Rocky was announced.
To cut the long idiotic story short, at the end the police was able to capture the two fleeing lovers but before that they had to kill the chimpanzee. Then they found it was not an animal, it was a human being in disguise and he was Selim. Last before death Selim kept his promise by uniting Rama and Shubho.
Priyanka acted like an amateur, Rudranil and Rahul tried to act but they had no dialogue, no seeing support to show off their talent.
