"BUD-NASEEB",  tells the gripping story of a group of 7 educated young girls who stepped out of the college to find that the world is not a bed of roses for them. The male-dominated society treats them as a commodity for sale or exchange.

There was Pallavi, happily married but her own husband wanted to trade her for his success.

Kavita's lover made her a call girl to get rich and marry a richer girl. Deepa was married into a super-rich family but her husband would not even look at her.

Sunita's own parents were so selfish that they would not like her to marry so that she keeps on working and feeding them.

Hema was a model where she was made to expose her body-and something more. Meenaxi was working in the hotel, where everyone expected her to entertain them.

Radhika was giving dance shows but still, she was not free.

Every one of them was dominated by a soulless male dominated society. This is the story of these 7 (Seven) girls their laughter, tears, hopes, and aspirations, and happy life.

Did they succeed in their battle for survival as a human being and not as a trading commodity?
Is the Law of the country adequate to protect the helpless woman?

The answer to all these queries is BUD-NASEEB.
