Unable to find any available flights, Arindam, a famous actor of popular Bengali movies, is forced to take a train to receive an award in New Delhi. On the train, everyone recognizes him, from a cranky old man that disapproves of his drinking to a fawning mother and daughter who share his cabin. However, it is Aditi, a journalist for a woman’s magazine, who catches his attention. Lucid and critical of the function of the star, she interrogates him and compels him to re-examine his life. Through their new bond, Arindam reviews his actor’s life, his moments of strength and crisis, and is stricken by doubt.
