Pundit Chaturvedi (Pankaj Kapur), a Hindu Priest fastidiously practices his religion.
One day, a child comes into his life. He adopts him and names him Kartikey. The priest's life is filled with joy, till the day Pandit Chaturvedi is forced by religion to turn Kartikey away. The 4 years old child challenges the very core of the priest's belief.
What should he do? Keep the child besides the religious incompatibility or save his social status and religious belief?
