Every evening at 10, everyone in Kolkata turns on the radio to listen to Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz – an episodic series of unrequited love stories. It is hosted by RJ Alfaaz who prefers to remain anonymous and detached – in spite of his huge fan base.
One of them is vivacious Archana, a young woman working at a creative agency. While suffering from leucoderma, she still enjoys life to the fullest.
One day they talk over the phone by chance, when Archana accidentally dials Alfaaz’ number instead of contacting her last blind date. Between the two strangers who are connected only by their mobile phones, a friendship develops which soon turns into romance – until they reveal their true selves to each other.
