It is a biopic of Kadambari Devi, sister- in- law of Rabindranath Tagore and wife of his elder brother Jyotirindranath. It is a period drama set in the late 19th early 20th century and maps the life of Kadambari who comes to Jorashanko Thakur bari, as a bride, at the tender age of 9. Suchishmita does a wonderful job, not only of capturing the very nuances of that particular age but also defining individual fashion sense of Tagore family – the affluent and enlightened. Kadambari, a beautiful woman, intelligent but not as self-assured as her sister-in-law, had been dressed in more traditional saris but in keeping with the fashion of that time. Jyotirindranath looks every bit his flamboyant self, Satyandranath elegant but reserved in his attire, Gyanadanandini, the emancipated intelligent wife, who created style for herself and influenced the contemporary women, with her elegant ways. The accessories and the jewellery worn by the women of the household also shows her thorough understanding of the era.
