Synopsis: Dev falls in with Ragini, a spunky classical dancer who is as unconventional as him. They get married and he takes up his new post in Lal Maati, a small town in North India. It is a town where the world of law is not the police, but Beera, a tribal who has over the years shifted the power equation of the place from the ruling to the have-nots of the area.
Dev knows that the key to bringing order to any place is not to vanquish the big fish; in this case — Beera. In one stroke, Dev manage to rip open Beera’s world and set in motion a change of event which will claim lives and change fortunes.
Beera, injured and enraged, hits back, starting a battle that draws Dev, Beera and Ragini into the jungle. The jungle is dense, confusing, scary. And in this journey, they must confront their own truth. It is a journey that will test their beliefs, convictions and emotions — emotions that are as scary and confusing as the forest.
The forest becomes the battleground. The battle between good and evil, between Dev and Beera, between Ram and Raavan. But when the lines dividing good and evil are blurring fast, whose side will you take? When hate turns to love and the good starts looking evil, which side will you battle for? Love is the battle that nobody wins, but everyone must fight. Even this Raavan.
