The eventful video begins with Ronobir confronting Kusum about her feelings for him and they share an intimate kiss! It immediately shifts to a disturbing shot of a battered Kusum in the army uniform lying in jail. A famous Rabindra Sangeet Bengali song Ami Chini Go Chini plays, as Kusum slaps Ronobir hard. Suddenly, bombs blast and guns are fired. Then opens the Calcutta Medical College which is a colourful and happening place. Ronobir is the Student Council President and the crush of all girls!
A new student Kusum, who is the only female MBBS student of the college, enters and sits in the boy’s section. When called out, she boldly answers, “No, it’s the MBBS section!” Ronobir instantly falls for her. He woos Kusum with old-school charm and they share an intimate moment in the car. Spanning from the period between 1960 to 1970, both of them drift apart and meet again when Ronobir returns from London as a doctor. He had broken Kusum’s heart in the past. An epidemic of cholera breaks out and a team of only 30 doctors have to attend 2000+ patients. India and Pakistan wage war and a loud siren goes off, worrying Kusum and Ronobir that Bengal is going to burn.
