Bastar is out on Zee5 and the movie, featuring Adah Sharma in the lead role, also stars Indira Tiwari. The actress is seen in the role of Ratna, who, like Adah’s IPS Neerja Madhavan, has a transformation. She goes from a helpless woman to one that picks up her fights. Here’s everything you need to know about her…

Who is Ratna?

Indira Tiwari’s Ratna is someone who lost both her husband and son to the battle. When Neerja tells her that she understands her pain, prompt comes the response, “Nahi samajh sakti hai.”


Forced to pick a side

She goes on to explain the situation, of how when you listen to Maoists then the cops kill you and if you don’t then the Maoists chop you up. Thus, it is important to free Bastar of the terror. However, that does not seem to happen anytime soon in the film.

The transformation

Soon after, we see Ratna’s journey from a helpless woman to one who is in service of the nation. Her only mission now is to kill Lanka Reddy.
