She takes care of all the needs and business activities of Tanmay Mohanty (Babushan), a successful sculptor. Despite his popularity Tanmay remains a very introverted man. As an orphan, he is emotionally dependent on Monalisa and secretly loves her, but is unable to express his emotions. Tragedy strikes Monalisa and her family, when her father loses his eyesight in an accident. In dire financial crisis, Monalisa's stepmother is forced to accept a marriage proposal from Kalidas Patnaik (Samresh), an exceptionally wealthy man. Under immense pressure, Monalisa feels she has no other choice but to marry Kalidas. However, Kalidas is a psychologically ill man with psychopathic tendencies and he tortures Monalisa. Unable to bear the torment, Monalisa jumps into the water while travelling with her husband on a boat. Will she make it out of the water alive?
