He has long discussions on art and politics with a Marxist friend (Om Puri), is seeing his father's secretary, Alice (Anjali Paigankar) and sometimes he visits a prostitute, Fatima. Much against his wishes, his marriage is arranged to a girl from a high-class family that has just returned from Paris much to Alice's mother dismay who realizes that Alice was time-pass for Arvind and nothing more.
