(Released: Apr 14, 2017)
The local brothel owner is living a carefree life with her girls in the huge Kotha, until the tumultuous time of partition hits its nerve. Before leaving India, British officer Cyril Radcliffe, a man who was unfamiliar with India's topography, ordered to separate India and Pakistan in just 4 weeks. In this newly crafted territory, Begum Jaan's brothel falls straight in the way and hence she is sent a notice by the government, asking her to vacate the same.
A stubborn Begum Jaan refuses to leave and seeks help from the local King (Naseeruddin Shah) whose patronage over Begum Jaan is the reason for her daredevil nature.
After she refuses to bend under pressure, INC leader Hariprasad (Ashish Vidyarthi) and Muslim league leader, Illyas (Rajit Kapoor) find violent ways to threaten her to leave.
An adamant Begum and her girls, put up a strong fight for their home irrespective of the disastrous consequences.
