Plot

Sunil (Rajit Kapoor) is the son who comes back to Calcutta to meet his father after spending 15 years in US. As we learn in that period of time he married an american and has two children whom he has promised to bring back their grandfather. When Sunil reaches Calcutta he finds the door of his father's house locked and the fact that his father no longer lives there. The father (Anjaan Srivatsav) is an autocratic and angry father who refuses to acknowledge that his son was going to marry a non-indian and refutes all attempts of communication, seen by the many unopened letters Sunil finds in his father's house when he gets there. Then it is just a story of search for his father. In that process Sunil meets his father's friends, his own two siblings, living in Bombay and Varanasi. Sunil's brother in Bombay is estranged from his father because he seemingly is very wealthy moneyminded drunkard and has no respect for anything else. His sister in Varansi is no help either since she has not met her father for a while now. Finally Sunil manages to track his father down to an oldage home to find that his father has passed away just a week before. He then starts hanging out with his father's roommate and listens to his stories, some of the freedom struggle, some of his father and finally asks him to come back to america with him so that he can take care of him.
