Madhuri Talkies is a hard-hitting tale of a young man Manish who sets out on a bloody rampage in Banaras to avenge his love, Puneeta, who was brutally violated by a gang of power-hungry men. The power of an individual shines through in this bone-chilling neo-noir thriller and raises an important question - is justice delayed, justice denied? Or sometimes, can taking matters into your own hands instil fear in the minds of perpetrators?
