Director Abhinay Deo opened up recently in an interview with PTI about his crime thriller film, Savi, starring Divya Khossla, Anil Kapoor, and Harshvardhan Rane. He said that the film is about a woman’s courage to go against all odds to save her family. The film is a modern retelling of the folk tale of princess Sati Savitri and prince Satyavan.

Speaking about the film and the character of Savi, played by Divya, Abhinay said to PTI, “It's a fight from a woman who is very unassuming, extremely simple, somebody who is just like any other person that you meet on an everyday basis. But when her family is in danger, things change. I think that is a very exciting story, the story about the courage of a simple woman.”

In the film, Divya plays a housewife named Savi, who is put into action when her husband, played by Harshvardhan, is jailed for a murder he didn’t commit. Anil’s character helps her in the conquest to break into prison and rescue her husband from death threats emerging in the prison.

Speaking about the film at the trailer launch, producer Mukesh Bhatt said, “The film will shock you. Not in a disturbing way, but in an elevating manner. At Vishesh Films, we don’t back big films; we back big ideas. Savi is one such idea.”

Savi is produced by Mukesh Bhatt, Bhushan Kumar, and Krishan Kumar. The film’s music has been composed by Vishal Mishra, Javed-Mohsin, Piyush Shankar, and Arkadeep Karmakar. It notably features the last song by the late KK, who passed away last year. The film was released in theatres on May 31.
