In a middle-class neighbourhood newly-wed Kanchan spends a lonely life in a one-room apartment. New to Mumbai, she prefers to tinker about within the walls of her life, and wait upon her husband to come home. Meanwhile, a gang of young college boys hang about below her window, trying to get her attention. Vicky specially senses an opportunity for a fling with a lonely girl - he tries a few stunts to get Kanchan's attention with the help of his friends.
But Kanchan keeps the boys, and the world, at a distance. She has a secret passion to read and day-dream about the world outside. Her aloofness and silence irritates her husband, resulting in him getting even more distant from her. Destiny has brought Kanchan together with a man who is not interested in books, or dreams.
Vicky can see the mismatch and wants to take advantage of it, but he is just a city-boy who sees relationships as fickle things - easy to exploit. Kanchan, although, a small-town girl who has accepted the reality of her marriage and resigned herself to the four walls of her house, now sees no harm in opening the windows and letting in a little bit of golden sunlight.
