But an ominous cloud looms when the school is visited by a businessman with a bad attitude. When the decision is made to dismiss Vidya (Shabana Azmi), one of the school’s most senior teachers, the school face an unsightly battle with new evil headmaster, Kamini Gupta (Divya Dutta) who’s greedy intentions dominate her every action.
