The plot is based on the character Durga Thakur, an ambitious and confident young woman who encounters a rich and powerful family with connections to the criminal world. Their son Shaurya, becomes besotted by Durga and decides to court for her affections regardless of the cost. Durga, however, has some other plans. She has a hidden past and is out for revenge against the family who destroyed her sister. She uses her influence on Shaurya to reap her retribution.

The Bollywood blockbuster needed a wide variety of film locations and complex drone shots. Varying from the heart of Dartmoor to the historic Tinton Abbey. Filmed with our own Arri Alexa Mini and heavy lift drone. It featured close tracking shots of a classic American Mustang muscle car driven at speed through closed canopy forests and desolate open moors to high aerials of the abbey in the morning mist. The high quality images from the Alexa matched perfectly with the Red Helium cameras used by the other camera teams on the Bollywood film set.
