In a middle-class Kolkata neighbourhood, the lives of four recently retired men take an unexpected turn when they stumble upon a crime. Will the unlikely ‘detectives’ be able to catch the criminal? Or will they unravel something even more sinister?

The protagonists grab this exciting opportunity to rise above their mundane existence. They defy the ordinary, stretch their boundaries, and in the process discover something precious.

Meanwhile, a lot is going on in the Paara (neighbourhood) – a rather difficult match-making process for a ‘wheatish complexioned’ daughter, rivalry between two neighbouring clubs over Durga Pujo, squabbles between the ‘out-dated’ seniors and the younger members of the local club, attempts at an impossible romance by a road-side Romeo...
