Afflicted by such a deadly malady, however, Professor Sapre decides to set aside self-pity and desperation and lead his last days happily. One of his past students, Vidyadhar Pai, now an ad agency chief happens to catch the professor's interview on television by chance. He longs to meet his old professor after 16 long years and he tracks him down to Sripur, a town 250 kilometres away from Mumbai. Embroiled in personal and professional complications, Pai finds succour in the wise words of his teacher.
