The King was all in all, in Raigad District. His subject considered him to be ALMIGHTY. The Henchmen of Thakur Rajasaheb harassed and tortured the people to the maximum. The present successor, Thakur Vikramsingh also chose the traditional way of his forefathers. His terror was so much that no one could utter a word, against Rajasab and they had no choice than to live in the oppressed regime.

But... there was one brave and straight forward man, who refused to adjust with the situation and he raised his voice against Thakursab and refused to compromise at any cost. As a result Thakur Vikramsingh took an oath that he would compel the young man to surrender before him and ordered his staff to pick up the wife of this young man along with two kids; Thakur decided to kill the family members in presence of this young man.

The wife of this young person was matured enough and having realised the situation,decided to save her children under any circumstances and promised to fulfill the mission of her husband and ventured into a great battle; she was alone and helpless but had a very strong determination for the noble task ahead. 'God helps those-who help themselves' and this proverb was proved to be true, in her case. The tribal people who had moral values, offered timely help and protected this woman and her children and as the time passed the kids were fully grown up as young men.

After a relentless struggle this brave woman returned to the same village with her two sons. Thus started the actual confrontation with Thakur and ultimately the woman won the game and lifelong struggle, which bore 'fruit' not only to her own life but others who were under the yoke of Thakur. She was an inspiration to the younger generation i.e. tomorrows' citizen the young starts.

On realising the END of his regime, Thakur Vikramsingh, with the help of his henchmen and vamps succeeded in poisoning the mother's mind against the younger son and when it reached the climax the mother herself pushed the loveable younger son to the death trap, but experienced and determined tribal girls saved him and helped to reunite the broken family with the help of police.
