Film details


Lafcadia is a Rajput warrior hired as a enforcer for a feudal warlord who sends him out to carry out ruthless punishments such as beheadings for non- payment of tithes as well as the massacre of entire villages. During one such attack on a village, a mystical encounter with a young girl brings about a transformation in Lafcadia. He determines to lay down his sword and lead a peaceful life but the warlord retaliates by destroying his house, kidnapping his son Katiba, as well as dispatching Biswas, a second warrior, to hunt him down and bring him his head.
