Where did you watch this movie?

In this original Indian adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet we see the story transposed to Banaras and its neighboring areas that are witness to violence unleashed by sand mafia controlled by urban elite and equally violent retaliation by Naxalite armies. The sand mafia is run by two influential Banarasi families, the Kashyaps and the Mishras, who are involved in a brutal feud with each other. Kashyap has an 18-year old, pretty and innocent daughter, Bachchi, from his first wife. On the other hand, Mishra’s son, Rahul, is a good-looking teenager with predictable interests for a boy of his background – Girls & Guns! Things change when the battle-hardened and pleasure-seeking Rahul and the romantic, yet head strong Bachchi, fall in love. Disregarding the consequences, the young lovers choose go ahead with the dictates of their hearts. What follows is a high octane action-filled drama.
