Superstitions and beliefs have been prevalent in Indian culture since ages. While belief is the pillar and support of well being growth and progress in any culture or civilisation; superstition on the contrary leads to confusion, falsity and even misery in some cases. Devi is an attempt to highlight the thin line between superstition and belief.
It is a fascinating tale of a girl, born in a drought stricken village, who is branded as reincarnation of Goddess Laxmi. While the girl receives special attention, adoration, respect and care from the villagers but she is deprived of the basic rights, privilege and freedom that a normal girl of her age enjoys. The story traces Devi's exploitation at the hands of the village, entrenched in blind faith and superstition.
