Bandish 20-20000Hz is a story of two singers, one from the nautanki tradition and the other from the classical music tradition. Both relive their glory days with witty anecdotes as their paths cross.
In a green room, 4 artistes come face to face with each other. Two of them are divas of yesteryears and the other two are young heart throbs of the nation. They are all set to participate in an event celebrating 70 years of Independence in small town India. Soon a crisis begins to emerge. The male heartthrob of the nation gets banned because of an anti national badge, followed by a power failure. The third crisis emerges when Beni Bai refuses to sing. As the event team tries to cope with these issues, we get a glimpse into the history of bans on artists and the responsibility of the artist to not stay quiet.
