The story revolves around teenager Kusum, an exquisitely beautiful and highly gifted classical singer, from the city of Benaras. Her mother’s obsessive protectiveness over every aspect of her life since her childhood and her restriction to let Kusum go out in the world on her own, stymied her to an extent that she was not conscious of either her good looks or her superior ability as a singer.
The storyline takes a sharp turn at the point when, per chance, she meets Someeron, a Kolkata youth, on a holiday trip to Benaras. Someeron acts as the spark to ignite her passion for an independent normal life.
The foundation of the plot is based on a thousand of years’ old custom in India with an interesting modern day perspective of that. It offers a glimpse into the condition of women in the country in ancient times, the abject apathy they suffered in the hands of male-dominated society.
With some inspiration and lot of hard work, Kusum, ‘the loser’, becomes an achiever in life. However, fate does not support her…
Does Kusum win in the end?... That is for you to decide.
