Veda B F
Veda B F unfolds in the quaint village of Nandeshwar, home to the devout Muslim Pathan family, led by Babulal Pathan, a proud descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Raja. The story takes a tragic turn when Babulal's sister falls in love with Avinash alias Nana, a Hindu boy. Babulal vehemently opposes their union, leading to his sister's heartbreaking suicide. Nana, shattered by the breakup, turns eccentric, running a small CD cassette business and advising village youth against the pitfalls of love. Tragedy strikes again when Babulal's daughter, Reshma, falls in love with Mahadev. Struggling with his devotion to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his opposition to Hindu-Muslim love, Babulal faces a dilemma. Despite his attempts to arrange Reshma's marriage, she resists, attempting to harm her father before succumbing to mental distress. Veda B F explores the complexities of love, family, and the consequences of societal expectations in the backdrop of Nandeshwar.
