Viruddh is the story of standing up against a well-established paradigm of power in defense of his/her convictions. It is about dissent, refusal of fear and of extraordinary courage and tenacity in extreme pressure and adversity.

Viruddh is about an ordinary sixty plus couple, Vidyadhar Patwardhan (Amitabh Bachchan) and Sumitra (Sharmila Tagore), who are forced to search for their faith in human values and society after the death of their only son (John Abraham). He accidentally witnesses a criminal act and loses his life in his attempt to intervene. The couple is extremely saddened by the incident and is bent on getting justice for the turn of events that lead to his unfortunate death. In this process they undergo the most testing struggle of their lives.

The ingredients of Viruddh and its theme are universally identifiable. Set in the networked and global milieu, it tells a tale that has classical elements and structure and can be relocated in almost any context. The film expresses individual and social vulnerability in the face of a corrupt system and how this equation continues to be the same even as the ways of the society change.

On the other hand, Viruddh is a film that suggests that if you don't stand up to your convictions and beliefs you are nothing but a dishonest hypocrite.
