“Anuradha, Devki’s close associate (Dimple Kapadia), party senior leader Gopal Das (Kumud Mishra) are few of many other leaders considering themselves fit to sit the chair. But the chair never comes easy.
“A parallel story plays out with the idealistic campus activist Shiva (Zeeshan Ayub) who becomes an overnight youth icon as he shines at a political event.
“Shiva wants to bring about the change, sway the youth and overthrow the power pillars.
“Shiva gets the first taste of power. Shiva and Samar’s lives intersect as the national politics meets campus activism.
“The dance of politics ensues as a series of events expose the inherent deceit, manipulation, greed, ambition and violence in all the relationships.”
