Despite hailing from a small village in Patna, Shyamlal (Barun Chanda) is entirely immersed in the comforts of his high paying corporate job. On her first visit to Calcutta, his young sister-in-law Tutul (Sharmila Tagore), who lives in Shyamlal's native place, is dismayed by his boastful displays of accumulated perks and privileges. However his façade cracks when a lucrative export order faces cancellation. Faced with the possibility of losing everything he has built, Shyamlal concocts a plot of feigned industrial sabotage to save face and protect company prestige.

Satyajit Ray's Company Limited is an epochal portrait of the rise of the educated urban middle-class. Shyamlal's ironic ascendancy up the corporate ladder, a rise in statute simultaneously accompanied by a fall in character, is the director's starkest reflection on modern India. The middle-part of the thematically related Calcutta trilogy (between The Adversary and The Middleman), Company Limited is a work of considerable psychological complexity and high technical accomplishment.
