The fearless reporter wields his pen to go toe-to-toe with this spotless figure of the community in a bid to uncover a series of incidents that shake the very foundation of society.

The period drama is an ode to mankind's spirit to do good, to pursue and discover truth at any cost and to fight for humanity. It shows how one person's will to affect positive social change can triumph over all evil and bring those in power to justice, as per the press release from the film's PR team.

It is a film that shows the resilience of human spirit and how a common man could wield the courage to help people around him and thus, help society at large. Get set to be mesmerized by a world of horse-drawn carriages, old-school printing presses, kaccha roads, beautiful traditions and a man's willpower to do good. We are beyond thrilled to present Maharaj that is set to stream exclusively on Netflix, the world's biggest streaming platform. A story like this will resonate to audiences globally and Netflix is the perfect platform to take our story to the world."

The official release date of 'Maharaj' is still awaited.
