Speaking about her character, Bhumi Pednekar said, “I always wanted to be a part of a film like Sonchiriya which is not just an action-packed film, but also a courageous revenge drama. This movie is a reflection of the happenings that takes place in the interiors of our country which people are not aware of. My character Indumati is a woman of great strength and courage and represents the many silent voices of our society and those who can’t speak for themselves. I consider it a privilege to be given a chance to essay such a strong character. It’s a must watch for everyone and hope the viewers who missed it in the theatres, tune into &pictures this weekend to watch the World Television Premiere of Sonchiriya.”
Set in the heartlands of India, the film follows the story of a legion of dreaded, warring Baaghis in the year 1975. The movie starts with Dacoit Maan Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) also known as ‘Dadda’ getting killed in a cross fire with the Special Task Force (STF) headed by Inspector Virendra Singh Gujjar (Ashutosh Rana). This leads to a power tussle in the gang between Lakhna (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Vakil Singh (Ranvir Shorey) causing a split in the gang. While on the run, they come across Indumati Tomar (Bhumi Pednekar) and Khushi who pleads to Baaghi to not harm them. Amongst all the running around from the cops to clashes among the Lakhna and Vakil for power. Will there ever be an end to this violence? Will Indumati and Khushi be able to get out of this chaos?
