With vermilion adorning her hair-parting dressed in be-jewelled grab, with distant dreams of going to her dearest darling, Durga received the shock of her life-time when Kumar Saheb, the Zamindar, in collaboration with his associates, assaulted her and tasted the fruits of her virginity...

After having lost everything, this bird minus her wings, took shelter at the hide-out of dacoit Karan Singh.

When he heard the tragic tale of gross inhuman barbarism, blood shot from his eyes. He gave her the place of his own sister. He took the oath of Godess Durga that he would take revenge from the tormentors of his sister Durga.

He also advised her to shed her weaker sex. He told her to give up her vermilion and gave her a gun in her hand.

Then there is the ruthless spell of mad dacoit Ranga. The public is under panic of his bloody battles with the innocent villagers.

The police is also puzzled. Many officers have been targets of his blood-thirsty bullets.

To end the laws of this out-law, to put an end to these dare-devil dacoities, the authorities depute Shanker, a special officer of the anti-acoit squad.

He tries his best to pacify the horrified villagers.

Durga had a revenge to take from her rowdy ravishers. Did she?
What was the outcome of dacoit Karan Singh vow of The Godess?
Did Shanker over-power the out-laws?
What was the penalty that dacoit Ranga had to pay..... at what cost?

Apollo International's "Bindiya Aur Bandook" provides an apt answer to all these questions. Await.
