The movie revolves around domestic abuse with a silver lining of ‘love’. Shefali Shah, who played the character of Shamshun in the movie, sees her daughter Badrunissa( Alia Bhatt ) being a victim of domestic abuse and narrates a very interesting story of a Magarmacch (crocodile) and Bichu ( scorpio ) that speaks of how one should not trust the sweet words and believe in their gut instead.

One of the scenes, that left the audience with a jaw drop was the scene where Shamshun aka Shefali Shah kissed Zulfi ( Roshan Mathew). It took the audience by surprise when they were least expecting it!
3. ”Okay, sau“(100)

When asked for the price, Zulfi mentions ₹400, but her A1 game of bargaining ends up in her buying it for a price of ₹50! The quarrel is simply worth it!ALSO READ: Raha Kapoor's birthday bash INSIDE PICS: Ranbir-Alia in a warm embrace; cool grannies steal the show
4. Perfect example of a strong and independent woman!
Throughout the movie, Shefali Shah sets an example of being a strong headed and independent woman, perfectly.

This just goes on to speak on how she’s a liberal and progressive woman that believes in standing up against what’s wrong.
5. Revenge is the best revenge
Towards the end of the movie, Shefali Shah helps take control of the situation, and organises a deadly plan to take revenge from Hamza ( Vijay Varma ) for all that her daughter has suffered because of him. She helps her daughter, take the leap of faith, and take the revenge Badrunissa deserved!
