Paresh Rawal portrays Tarini Ranjan Bandhopadhyay, a unique narrator who is known for his propensity to switch careers. Throughout his career, he has had 32 different jobs. At 60 years old, living in Kolkata, and widowed, Tarini’s one regret is that he was unable to grant his late wife Anuradha’s long-held yearning for a holiday.
