Pankaj Tripathi will play the role of Gangaram, the village sarpanch, who does not get compensated by the government after wild animals destroy farmland. Then, Gangaram takes the matter into his hand and find out that the families of people who die of tiger attacks will be given Rs 10 lakh as compensation. He decides to sacrifice himself to get the compensation, much to his wife's disapproval. Sayani Gupta plays the role of Pankaj's wife.
