Pinjar is based on the famous novel by a noted poet writer Amrita Pritam. The story of Pinjar is set in the backdrop of riots during the partition of India and Pakistan. It’s a gripping tale of human spirit to overcome hate with compassion and love. Intolerance, cruelty kidnapping and rape of women rendered thousands of innocent lives as their destinies. In this one character name Puro (Urmila) is kidnapped by Rashid (Manoj Bajpai) in account of Hindu-Muslim revenge. Puro then gets forcefully married to Rashid. Rashid then feels very guilty and started loving Puro more than his life. But Puro ignores him like hell.

She then decides that she will save Lajjo anyhow and will not create any other Puro in her presence. Will Puro be able to fight alone? Will she be able to save Lajjo and will reunite with her brother? Will Puro ever understand the love of Rashid to herself?
