It is shown in the film how the villagers struggle to save their land and forest. People living close to the forest express their rights over it. The hero of the film, Shiva, goes to the forest to hunt animals, gets involved with the forest officer, but many times he feels the presence of Varaha Dev (incarnation of Lord Vishnu) in the mysterious forest, which makes him very nervous.
