Dhoosar centers around the life of Suhasini, a poetess & writer and the people in her life. Her daughter, Suniti returns home to Goa from the US after two and a half years to see the signboard for one Arjun Kumbhojkar at her mother's house. She is outraged when she also sees Suhasini walking around in the compound like a zombie. The domestic help, though empathetic, is just not willing to let a ''stranger'' in without Arjun's permission when he is not at home. Initially guarded in her interactions with Arjun, she gradually warms up to him and the two go on to share a close bond, spurred on by their mutual concern for Suhasini.
