Ishti is set in the mid-twentieth century Kerala when young Namboothiri Brahmins successfully challenged the orthodox, patriarchal traditions of their community which allowed the patriarch, the eldest male member of the family, sole control o the family property and denied normal education to its members particularly women. The film also has a feminist angle too.
