So what is Begusarai series about
The series gets its name from a fictional town called Begusarai in the district of Bihar, India. The land is a tough one where wealth, power and respect is earned only through violence. If you want to become influential and powerful, then you have to be ready for gunfights and bloodshed.
It is in this backdrop that Phulan Thakur lives with his family and has garnered respect and status over the years. He is the present ruler of the land.
Also, as the head of the Thakur family he has the task of picking a heir to his throne. This is not an easy task however because the family is presently polarized into different factions with sibling rivalry.
But because Phulan knows that troubled times are approaching, he therefore makes it his new life mission to unite his family into a formidable and unified force; he also seeks to promote peace in Begusarai.
His intentions are however thwarted when Bhindya arrives. She is a beautiful and renowned dancer who has evil intentions towards the Thakur family.
Even though she portrays herself as an agent of peace she is the opposite; she seeks to manipulate her way into the trust of the family from where she can make them fragment even further.
