Veer is a period film with an epic feel. The film is set in the era of 1875 and is based on the love story of a warrior “Veer” and his clan of the fearless Pindhari warriors of the 19th century.
From the misty pages of history comes a story of extreme valour, fierce pride and poignant love. As the British enslave India with their devious Divide and Rule policy, kings and nawabs fall to their guile and cunning, and entrust their precious kingdom to the foreigners.
Except for the brave Pindaris, who prefer death to dishonour and will fight to their last breath to save their land....their mother. The bravest, the toughest, the strongest of the Pindaris is Veer. As Veer takes on the might of the British Empire, he also has to fight the conniving King of Madavgarh as well his own jealous tribesmen. But then the stakes are high.... At stake is his love for princess Yashodhara, daughter of his sworn enemy... At stake is his thirst to avenge his father's dishonour....
At stake is his very existence itself.... Cannons roar, swords clash in fierce battle, the dead pile up....And when the dust settles down on the blood soaked land...one valiant warrior stands head and shoulders above them all - Veer!
