The story of Sob Choritro Kalponik,is about Radhika (Bipasha Basu),is an ordinary Bengali housewife who has lived away from her home state for some time. She comes back to Kolkata after her husband Indranil (Prasenjit) goes missing, in search of her roots as she is basically from Kolkata. Indranil was professionally an engineer but a poet by choice. Radhika is introduced to Shekhar(Jisshu Sengupta), a photographer, when she comes to Kolkata. Her search for her roots is also a search for little slices of her husband she did not know that she tries to discover through his poetry. The film thus, is soaked with the romance and the lyricism of poetry. The film follows Radhika on her journey that transcends the geographical boundaries of going from one city to another, to enter into an introspective journey to re-discover herself within the city she once belonged to, an emotional journey to trace the finer nuances and shades of her relationship with her husband, and an investigative journey into things about her husband she did not know about. Sob Choritro Kalponik is more of a metaphorical journey of all these journeys put together. She begins to understand him through his writings, including his dream muse who does not exist except in Indranil’s imagination and his poetry and discovers him all over again. Sob Charitro Kalpanik shows how Radhika discovers his imaginary muse from his poems who spurred him on to write poetry. Pauli Dam plays this role.
