Based on a raging controversial novel of the 80’s CALCUTTA, UNABASHED - (Bibar) deals with the angst of city youth in Calcutta, who are caught between the lures of a new, liberalized society and fast-fading traditional values. Biresh (Subrat Dutta – product of National School of Drama, India) an investigating officer in a finance company is at heart a bohemian with no rigid values in life. In love, he is caught in a psycho-sexual relationship with a high society call girl Nita (Tannishtha Chatterjee - German film “Shadows of Time” by Florian Gallenberger and French Film “Let the wind blow”).

In his office, his position becomes bleak as he refuses a loan to an influential person. He starts drinking heavily and starts visiting Sonagachhi, the infamous red-light area of Calcutta with his painter friend Hiren (Shiladitya Patranobish). He also gets attracted towards a model, Iti (Payel Sarkar). Biresh, in a bout of self-destruction, vents his anger and frustration by strangling Nita, and stages his alibi through Iti.
