Ardhangini tells the story about overcoming and embracing each other's differences in ideologies and embarking on a journey of love after marriage. The series starred Nabanita Das as Ishwari, Jeetu Kamal as Ayush and Rahul Banerjee as Umapati.
Umpati is a man deeply rooted to Traditional value system and believes that men and women are born for separate duties. He is a famous Ayurveda Practitioner and dreams of an ideal, ritualistic wife who shares his values. Ishwari conversely is a free spirited, independent, empowered lady who is exceptionally talented and well trained in classical dance. She believes a woman is no lesser than a man. These two completely different personalities meet each other on a chilly morning at the holy Ghat across the Ganges in Haridwar. When two entirely different individuals, antipodal as personalities meet, their destinies having had a significant role to play, their respective worlds eventually come crashing down.
But at this point, they've seen a long and happy spell with each other overcoming many challenges thrown on the way to rediscover herself Ishwari is bound to perform the challenging task of a housemaid a consultant a care giver and finally a lover to prove herself as a worthy wife not only to her husband umapati but also to all her in laws. Next she comes across challenges posed by the jealous Ganga Umapati's childhood friend who secretly wants to become Umapati's wife but fails to do so. And then comes challenges from Umapati's Aunt Mamoni who just cannot tolerate Ishwari and makes life very difficult for her. But Ishwari uses her intelligence to single handedly prove her innocence against every accusation and thereafter bring out the real culprits of the misdeeds for which she is falsely implicated. All these family drama finally culminate to a happy point when Ishwari finally proves that Mamoni Umapati's own sister Anjali and Mamoni's son Vishnu are involved in a robbery in their own house.
After Mamoni Vishnu and Anjali are put behind bars by the Law peace returns to the Bhattacharya family and they start planning for Nandi and Dev's marriage to the daughters of the family Arati and Payel After this the family decide to go to Haridawar. On the way disaster strikes as their train derails and the sole survivors of the accident are Ishwari and Kakamoni. Everyone else Thammi Boroboumoni, Payel, Arati, Nandi and Umapati die in the train accident on the other side Ishwari's mother also suffers a massive heart attack in Haridwar and is assumed to be dead. After gaining consciousness Ishwari sees Umapati die due to lack of proper treatment in front of her eyes. This causes her a deep trauma and she suffers from major amnesia and mentally is transported back to be 10 years old girl. This comes as a big challenge for Dr. Ayush who is treating Ishwari and is also her secret childhood admirer.
Later the story explored the life of a mentally unstable Ishwari after the sad demise of Umapati, the troubled yet exhilarating path that her life has taken on. Here comes Ayush, an old friend that adores Ishwari like no other, takes her by the hand and takes on the world with her.
