Is evil hereditary? Is righteousness a birth-right? Are the Gods guilty of favouritism and nepotism?
A discriminatory and divisive society often treacherously conspires against its brothers, turning them into loathsome creatures. Marginalized by a judgmental world and misguided by a vile Guru, Mahishasur becomes the tyrant he never wanted to be. On the other hand, Indra – the narcissistic, complacent King of Amaravati, faces the demons of his past and tries to rise above his petty insecurities and bloated vanity.
The central characters vacillate between the ambiguous values of morality and truth. The chasm between wrong and the wronged narrows drastically in this fast-paced, adrenaline-infused, and thought-provoking narrative. Blinded by malignant revenge, and seething with hatred, Mahishasur starts on the labyrinthine path towards elusive justice. He destroys the world and himself, till the tragic hero comes face to face with his invincible nemesis: the Divine Mother.
Will the absolute definitions of good and evil be rewritten by the Devi?
Will the merciful Mother pardon her fallen son?
Will evil truly die, or will it expose its fangs again?
