Jai Santoshi Maa is about how Maa supports her devotees.
Rakesh Bapat
Rakesh Bapat

The film focuses on how the divine intervention of the Goddess can change the path of one's life.

Jai Santoshi Maa is the story of Mahima (Nushrat Bharucha), an ardent devotee of the Goddess and Anuraag (Rakesh Bapat), a musician by heart. It's a saga of all the hardships they face, with no complaints or regrets.

This emotional drama shows how they overcome these hardships with Santoshi Maa's blessings.

Mahima's father is a music teacher and her mother a devotee of Maa. She is married to Anuraag, a young man whose passion is music.

As this marriage was against the will of Anuraag's family, the couple begin to face hardships in their lives.

Fed up with humiliation, Anuraag decides to try his luck elsewhere, where no one knows him. Meanwhile Mahima decides to stay back and serve her in-laws.

But all she gets in return is misery, pain and distress from every member of the family.

With no shoulder to lean on, Mahima starts worshipping Santoshi Maa. She starts her 'solah-shukrawar vrats' (holy fasting on Fridays) and follows them religiously.

She withstands everything that comes her way with a smile on her face and faith in her heart.

Pleased with her devotion, Maa not only makes all her wishes come true but also blesses her husband with all the success he ever wished for.

This is a religious film made in Hindi based on the Goddess Santoshi Maa and her devotees.

How the devotees' faith change the lives of their near and dear ones forms the underlying message of 'Jai Santoshi Maa' which is being released by EROS International in the UK.
