Nasif Amin has written the story of Munshigiri in the light of the novel 'Mriterao Kotha Bole' by Shibobrata Barman.
The story revolves around the revelation of the mystery of the death of a government official. In order to resolve the case, officer Masud Munshi kept trying to get as much information as possible from Suraiya, the wife of the deceased officer.
In addition to the mystery, the film focuses on the personal life of a devoted DB policeman.
