British model Lucy Pinder made her Bollywood debut with the film. A contemporary adaptation of Hindu mythological tale of Satyavan and Savitri (found in Mahabharata), the film revolves around Savitri (Niharica Raizada), a loyal and devoted wife, who can go to any extent to save her husband Satya (Rajat Barmecha) from the clutches of death, even if it requires her to negotiate with Yama (Om Puri plays the God of death). Savitri grows up to be a 'warrior' after a childhood memory scars her for life. She decides to learn martial arts in order to protect herself and her family. She falls in love with Satya and wishes to marry him but a Hindu pandit opposes the decision. "Your husband will die if you marry him," he warns. Without paying heed, she gets married to Satya and moves to the U.S, where he resides. But a chain of unfortunate events posing a threat to her husband and father-in-law's (Gulshan Grover) lives follow, forcing her to unleash the fighter within her. The film was released on 25 August 2016.
