Set in 1303 AD medieval India, Padmavati is a story of honour, valour and obsession.
Queen Padmavati renowned for her exceptional beauty is the wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh of the Kingdom of Chittor, a prosperous kingdom in the north west of India. The legend of her beauty reaches the reigning sultan of Hindustan – Alauddin Khilji. Obsessed by Padmavati’s beauty and claiming her for himself the tyrant Sultan decides to lay siege on the impregnable fortress of Chittorgarh. After a gruelling 6 months, he returns to Delhi empty handed, fuelled by the desire to capture Chittor and its Queen at any cost. He returns with a bigger army and attacks Chittor with brutal force. A bloody and fearsome battle ensues with the righteous Maharawal Ratan Singh defending his kingdom and the honour of his queen. Khilji manages to breach the fortress but his attempt to capture the Queen is in vain as she chooses to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect her dignity.
