At the centre of the film is Aniket (Indraneil) who wakes up from a drunken stupor at a resort and reflects on his life in the past year. A year that has seen a slot of tension, betrayal, sadness and downs in life.Aniket reflects on each of the SMSes sent by certain people and certain incidents are shown based on interactions between the protagonist and the people one by one. It seems as if most have caused more misery to him or saddened him more in any which way. The only exceptions may be his teacher Farhad (played By Anjan Dutt), his father (played by Biswajit Chakrabarty and during whose last moments he couldn’t be present) and maybe his wife. But even then his relationship with his wife is at it’s extreme worst with extreme tension where there is no trust thanks to Ani’s own doing (the result of his affair with Lillete) which creates such an atmosphere where Raka, Ani’s wife (played by Srilekha) tries to commit suicide(she is prevented from doing so by Ani) and later leaves him. His love life with Lilette comes crashing down after he discovers she is HIV positive. Then you have the recession which hits everyone including Ani’s friends and Ani and his colleagues and his boss loses her job. On top of that there is office politics and his trusted colleague Manish turns out to be manipulative. He has also has a friend Kevin, an event manager who is a failure and his fashion designer wife Sonia who want to abort their child as the child is not normal. Since Ani always sticks by his friends, this further adds to his misery as he has another friend Suhash whose factory has a lockout and later on his wife Sudha who becomes a beautician is arrested on charges of prostitution.
All these put together makes Ani literally go through hell .The film is about how Ani deals with his inner self and the turmoil and manages to survive despite all odds .Things brighten towards the end as the recession comes to an end.
