Masaan is Neeraj's first film. Set in Varanasi, it follows the stories of a young man from a low caste, an orphan who collects coins from the river bed, a receptionist at a coaching centre and her father, who is a pandit. The young man falls in love with a high-caste girl. The receptionist finds herself in the middle of a sex scandal. The pandit fights taboos and the orphan finds a father figure. All these characters are considered to be misfits in the world of small-town moralities.
