As the action spirals up through the floors of their building, the dramas of the residents' lives unfold: Mr. Jalal's obsessive search for higher meaning; Vinod Taneja's longing for the wife he has lost; the comic elopement of Kavita Asrani, who fancies herself the heroine of a Hindi movie. Vishnu's ascent of the staircase parallels the soul's progress through the various stages of existence, and the story of one apartment building becomes a metaphor for the social and religious divisions of contemporary India.
