Dev falls in love with Ragini, a spunky classical dancer who is as conventional as him..They get married and he takes up his new post in Vikramasingapuram, a small town in southern india.. A town where the word of law is not the police, but veera, a tribal who has over the years, shifted the power equation of the place from the ruling to the have nots of the area..
Dev knows that the key to bringing order to any place is to vanquish the big fish-in this case its veera..In one stroke Dev manages to rip open veera's world, and set in a motion a chain of events which will claim lives, change fortunes..
Veera injured, but enraged hits back staring a battle that drwas Dev, Veera and Ragini to a dark deep jungle..In this journey they must confront their own truths.. it is a journey that will test their beliefs, emotions, convictions.. the forest which becomes their battle ground.. Now the battle is between good and evil,between Dev and veera, between Ram and Raavana..
But when the lines dividing good and evil are blurring fast, whose side will you take.. Love is a battle that nobody wins but everyone must fight..Even this raavan..
