“KUCHHE DHAAGE” is a love story finding its origin in hatred and eternity. Lakhan who was born in the Valleys of Chambal, was infused from childhood with the fire of vengeance by his mother. When he grew up he killed Tulsiram, thereby taking his father’s revenge. Now Tulsiram’s son  Roopa, wanted to settle terms with Lakhan and he left no stone unturned in finding out his enemy. But before they could get each other, they were themselves enticed by the beauty, simplicity and angelic innocence of Sona, ayoung village girl, least realizing that she was in love with Bhola, her childhood friend. Thus now Roopa and Lakhan’s heart throbbed not only with vengeance and hatred but also with a stream of love and affection.


It so happened that due to Lakhan’s fellow –men, Sona had to face a lot of humiliation and disrespect in the eyes of the villagers.


To prove her innocence and chastity, Lakhan made her a tie a “raakhi” on his hands. But alas the self-conceited and wicked world did not realize the meaning and the purity of this eternal bond of love!


Things began getting worse and finally for the happiness of Sona, two life –long enemies turned friends and died a noble death.
