‘Khap’ A Story Of Honour Killing

 A contemporary tale of traditional massacre erupting in the heartland of central India where certain villages still follow cruel age-old customs. This is where a story of passion, dishonour and deceit unfolds, where the sweet innocence of youth is throttled by uncompromising beliefs.

The film opens in the capital where two youths Ria and Kush fall in love. Meanwhile, news channels highlight the death of Veer and Sureeli who are found dead in Omkar Chaudhary’s village. Ria has no idea that Omkar is her grandfather. Madhur, Ria’s father, had left his native village due to differences with Omkar over the ruthless pratha of honour killings. Madhur is chosen to lead a commission to investigate the suspicious deaths of young Veer and Sureeli.

Veer’s father Daulatsingh is a supporter of this pratha and is unmoved with his son’s death. However Sukhiram, Sureeli’s father is broken by his daughter’s demise. Will Sukhiram be weakened and reveal all to the human rights commission?

Torn between his love for his son and his strong belief in the pratha, Omkar promises Madhur that he would put an end to the ruthless killings in the village.

Ria and Kush are also pulled into the vortex of these inhuman customs.

How do the patriarchs of the pratha respond to these happenings? Does Omkar Chaudhary change for the sake of his grand daughter? These are the questions that the film attempts to raise.

Are we courageous enough to face the truth?
