Calcutta, circa 1880. The beautiful Charulata idles her life away in an opulent Victorian mansion, secluded from the outside world. Her husband, Bhupati, an idealistic intellectual, is adoring and supportive. However, he is consumed by the publication of his new political newspaper and is unable to spend time with her. When his younger cousin, Amal, arrives, Bhupati enlists his help to cultivate Charulatas latent creativity in writing. An increasingly intimate relationship develops between them which in the beginning is based on complicity and writing, but eventually develops into love. Blind to all but his own ideals, Bhupati is left to weather the fate of his business and marriage.
