The story takes place between two couples of two different generations. Amit Ray, the protagonist of Shesher Kabita runs an old age home with his friend Narendra. Post her retirement from service, Amit’s former paramour Labanya, comes to stay at his old age home while on the other hand, Labanya’s nephew Akash falls in love with Amit’s daughter Kuhu.
Years ago, destiny compelled the young lovers Amit and Labanya to drift apart, leaving them no choice but to move on with their lives. Now in their waning years, the two meet again but complications still prevail when one’s daughter falls in love with the other’s nephew. Will Kuhu and Akash have to face the same fate as their elders?
The film starts after several decades of separation between the protagonists Amit and Labanya. As the plot progresses, the emotional bonding between the two begins to rebuild alongside the parallel narrative of a younger couple Akash and Kuhu, between whom love is newly blossoming. Will the young lovers face the same fate as their elderly counterparts? Will Amit and Labanya get to unite at the end of Shesher Golpo? That is what the film delves into.
While Amit’s part is being played by Soumitra Chatterjee and Labanya’s by Mamata Shankar, other popular actors including Pallavi Chatterjee, Kharaj Mukherjee, Kalyan Chattopadhyay, Krishnakishor Mukhopadhyay, Durga Santra and Aarna Mukhopadhyay also play pivotal roles in the film.
