The story begins with a happily married couple, but do they have a happily-ever-after?

The film showcases the bond that a couple share, the responsibilities, the love, and the insecurities. The protagonist marries a girl named Beauty and true to her name, the woman has an ethereal aura. She can be seen draped in saris with the pallu over her head, signifying respect for her culture, and defining that the couple belongs to a well-cultured background.

This has made him bitter and he feels jealous as well as insecure as he tries to control his wife and her communication with his best friend. But this leads to a shocking new fact! Is his wife actually having an affair?
