Middle-class Ravi works hard to provide for his family and enjoys his work in the television studio, where he is assisted by Reena. However, his wife, Sheela, is shrewish and suspects he is having an affair with Reena. During an ugly argument Ravi hits Sheela, who falls and knocks her head on a wooden carving on the bedpost. This kills her outright and he is left with having to dispose of the body and then be interrogated by the police when the body is subsequently found.
