The whole story revolves around Malti (Richa Sony as Malti) where she returns back to her home from the trip within an expeditious time which was unpredicted by Arjun, where he was occupied with someone in his room, his girlfriend Diya (Flora Saini as Diya).
After seeing Malti, Arjun starts perspiring and gets into an imbroglio situation. Where on the one side his girlfriend Diya is in his room, in the house whereas on the other side his own wife Malti is standing out of the house, ringing the bell. It was all a sudden shock to Arjun. So, he rushes back to Diya and asks her to hide somewhere till his wife Malti settles somewhere, so that it would be uncomplicated to elude or escape from the house. So here Arjun was duping and hoodwinking on his wife, with Diya.
The climax says the story, as the dubiety ends here, after a long suspicious act by Arjun, Malti kills him by feeding a dish made by her. As Arjun rushes to the table to eat it, after gulping a small piece of it, his throat seems to juggle and deconstruct inside. And he dies there on the spot. Malti pulls away the body and leaves the house in a clandestine manner by destroying the image of the restaurant, mixing poison into the ordered food by Arjun.
This then leaves Diya to come out of the place where she was hiding and later rushes towards the same table and eats the same food, as she was feeling so hungry. She then dies on the spot just like Arjun died.
The whole story revolves around the concept of women empowerment. It’s a mystery kind of a story where each frame of incidents happened accordingly. Cheating is a crime on one’s own wife and defrauding them by spending with other woman on bed. This story gives a beautiful message to the public, stating to be true in your relationships and never deceive your partner.
