The show, which will air on Star Plus, is a story of two prisoners of war who falsely are trapped by the army of the neighboring nation and are released after 17 years. The show moves back and forth between then and now questioning the credibility of these army jawans who may have been forced to change for the worse in those years.

Purab Kohil who’s always played the quintessential boy-next-door will be seen in a raw tough look as an army officer. The series also stars Satyadeep Mishra, Sandhya Mridul and Amrita Puri.
