Storyline

Basanti is a brave working class teenage girl whose father Shankar is respected in the village for his honesty. Bhavani Shankar wants to force him to support his puppet candidate in the next election, but his brother, Basanti's father, supports another good man, Aftab Ahmad Khan. Bhavani Shankar's henchmen kill Basanti's father and Aftab Khan in front of the girl's eyes. After listening to her father's last words, the girl takes a solemn oath to rebel against all oppressors. A few years later, she becomes a good shooter and fighter, and joins the mountain outlaws. Together, they rebel and fight Bhavani Shankar, and his corrupt administration. Written by Artemis-9
