The video begins with Mahmood telling Moushumi Chatterjee to come into their bedroom. But, Moushumi Chatterjee declines. He opens the door to the children’s bedroom and pleads with her. She shows the youngest child and says she can’t come in gestures. He goes back to their bedroom and looks at his watch. Then, he begins the song.
She replies in the song itself as she comes into the bedroom. As he pulls her into his arms, they hear the cries of the children. She pushes him away and goes to the children’s bedroom to make them sleep. He again comes back to the door of the children’s bedroom and whistles for her. She hushes him. But, he continues the song in a low tone.
He goes back to their bedroom and she comes there too. The video ends with both of them on the bed and covering themselves with the blanket.
