‘Pataakha’ ( meaning Firecracker ) seems to revolve around the two sisters, Badki and Chutki who grow up in a village in Rajasthan. The two are seen sharing a difficult relationship where they find themselves to be constantly at war with each other, which takes a twisted turn once they are married into the same family!
