Synopsis

Bhuvan Shome a railway officer, lonely widower, and a proud old man takes a day off from his life in the city and walks into another world—a new world consisting of simple village folk. He rides a bullock cart, encounters a buffalo and finally the village belle Gauri. Off to shoot ducks amid sand dunes, suddenly everything lights up, rejuvenates him, and simultaneously deepens his sense of loneliness.
