Bhupati a wealthy man with, a bent towards journalism in 19th century India, neglects Charulata, his wife to pursue politics. Amal, his brother, comes for a visit and after a while Bhupati coaxes him to “bring out” her artistic leanings. Amal does, but through their subtle interplay Charulata comes to feel deeply for Amal. At one point Amal admits to Charulata that “a woman’s mind can only be understood by men,” but when she ironically published a short story on her own and without his knowledge, Amal is dumbfounded.

The subtle tension between these two rivals gives way when Amal finally realizes that Charulata is in love with him. So as not to injure his brother, Amal leaves unexpectedly. Bhupati, however, catches Charulata crying over Amal and is shocked and sorrowful.
