The patriarch, Suryashekhar Chattopadhyay is a deeply religious person and a man of firm principles. He treats the predictions of the horoscope like axiomatic truth, realizing little that such predictions can often be misleading. His obduracy distances him from his only son, Alok, who refuses to put up with his father's unbending attitude to the horoscope. Alok marries outside his caste, denounces his horoscope, and leaves home to settle abroad with his wife. Suryashekhar's wife; an accomplished and educated lady, is reduced to being a mute witness to all this and never protests against her husband's whims and harsh decisions. She bears everything with quiet, resigned dignity. Their grandson, Arijit comes to stay with them through a strange turn of events, and they are overjoyed. But, by then, Suryashekhar has decided that he will die in Benaras to rid himself of the eternal cycle of rebirth. He decides to check in at Moksha Bhavan, a house where people come to die. There Arijit meets Kasturi, a Bihari woman, whose mother-in-law awaits death. Her husband, Shyam cannot father a child, but blames her and abuses her which she refuses to accept. Kasturi takes it up as a challenge to prove that she is capable of carrying a child and as a result gets involved with Arijit. But by another turn of events, Arijit decides to marry Kasturi once he comes to know that he has sired the child she has conceived. As Arijit's parents come to Benaras and come to know of their relationship, they refuse to accept their son's decision. While confronting Arijit, Alok has a massive heart attack and dies. Suryashekhar is shattered. As the embers of their son's pyre die out, Suryashekhar's wife confronts him and questions, for the first time, his unbending faith and the truthfulness of the predictions of the horoscope. Suryashekhar realizes how wrong he has been all through his life. more»

The phrase "Shubho Mahurat" is associated with the beginning of shooting for a feature film. The first shot is marked by a grand reception. This Miss Marple-esque film begins with this event. An NRI producer, Padmini Chowdhury (Sharmila Tagore), has come to India to invest in a film. Her second husband Sambit Roy (Sumanta Mukherjee), an out-of-work director, is assigned the job of direction. The out-of-work director has a shady past. A witness to his shady past is an aspiring actor, who was subsequently thrown out of the acting circuit. This actor started a catering service for the film unit. The NRI producer insists on casting a retired actress, Kakoli (Kalyani Mandal) in a prominent role. Kakoli, a drug addict, subsequently dies under mysterious circumstances, on the day of 'Shubho Mahurat'. The journalist Mallika Sen (Nandita Das) is the only person present at the time of the death. The suspicion naturally falls on the husband of the actress, who reportedly has an amorous relationship with another lady. The unnatural death of the actress causes a police investigation. An IPS officer named Arindam (Tota Roy Chowdhury) takes up the investigation. During the course of investigation, Arindam befriends Mallika. Meanwhile, Mallika catches the fancy of a still photographer named Jojo (Anindya Chatterjee) who, incidentally, is closely related to the NRI producer. This NRI producer had a past no less interesting than the other protagonists. The NRI producer was an actress of repute in her heyday. She divorced her husband and left the country to settle abroad. Before that, she had given birth to an abnormal child. The course of the film reveales that she bore a grudge against Kakoli for spreading a contagious disease to her while she was pregnant, resulting in the abnormal child. Another amorous affair runs parallel to the main theme: The camera assistant was repenting for his past affair with the hairdresser. The hairdresser has her problems and she was extracting money very often from the camera assistant. All through the movie, the aunt of the journalist, Ranga Pishima (Raakhee), gives vital leads to the investigation through deductive logic. She is able to read the mind of the niece correctly. Her valuable inputs finally leads to solve the murder mystery. more»
