Select Preferred Format

A desolate land.
A debauched patriarch.
An upstart in search of a reputation.
A man running away from one.
Shikargarh, central India. An untamed wilderness ruled by a debauched raja with a passion for sex, drugs and cockfighting. The raja’s Karianath fighter cocks are the undisputed champions of the area-until their reign is challenged by the new Aseel fighters being imported by Teja, his bastard son, who also schemes to usurp his throne.
Into this world arrives Sheru, a brooding stranger hired to work for the raja. As Sheru negotiates this wild land, he finds himself getting pulled into a spiralling vortex of events that threaten to derail his destiny. But Sheru is a dangerous man with a dark past, and when he unleashes his fury, all hell breaks loose.
