Synopsis of Laboratory:
Scientist Nanda Kishore, in his middle age created two important milestones. He built a laboratory with modern and expensive equipment using all his life’s income, and secondly, he married a village belle from Punjab. Though they had a huge age difference he fell in love instantly with Sohini and felt he could really depend on her.
After a few years, while working on an experiment, Nand Kishore passed away. While alive he had made Sohini aware of his laboratory and its importance and had instructed her to choose a proper and responsible person who would continue his research, so that even after his death his work would continue.
Nanda Kishore and Sohini had a daughter, Neela. After the sudden death of her husband Sohini devoted herself to look after their daughter but also kept her search on for the perfect successor of the laboratory.
Sohini at last comes to know of a science professor, Mr. Choudhury, who once had an eligible student Reboti Bhattacharya. Sohini with her charisma entices Professor Choudhury to know more about Reboti. However, after meeting Reboti, Sohini is in a dilemma. She could not decide if she would entrust him with the laboratory’s responsibilities or get him married to her daughter Neela.
Neela attracted many admirers who wanted to marry her and inherit the huge property that was left to her by her father. Neela also hated her mother’s interference in her personal life so she developed an association with rowdies from the upper class of the society. Sohini was hurt by Neela’s attitude; she could have taken a stern hand, but remained aloof. She went to her village to meet her ailing mother instead. Professor Choudhury was also out of town. Taking advantage of the situation, Neela invites Reboti to her friend’s association. Shunning all his responsibilities Reboti gets involved with the rowdy crowd and announces that he would get married to Neela and starts to throw parties with all the research money.
Sohini arrives during one of his parties, and is stunned by Reboti’s behavior. Reboti breaks down and realizes what he has done. Though Sohini feels insulted and maligned she realizes that if this situation had not arisen, she would not have known about Riboti’s spineless character. Sohini also realizes that she would have made a huge mistake if she had entrusted the responsibility of her husband’s Laboratory to Reboti.
