Plot summary

Set in 1996 in the village of Azadganj, Udaan is the story of the bonded labourers of a wealthy landlord, Kamal Narayan Rajvanshi (Sai Ballal). The story features the female protagonist Chakor (Spandan Chaturvedi), who is kept as collateral (girvhi). While Chakor's mother Kasturi Bhuvan (Sai Deodhar) is pregnant with her, her father, Hariya, dies in an accident. Bhuvan has neither money nor a cow to donate to Pandit for Hariya's funeral, so Bhuvan and Kasturi go to Rajvanshi's haveli and beg for money from him. Instead, his wife Tejaswini suggests that they keep the unborn child as a collateral. The couple agrees that the child can be Rajvanshi's bonded labourer. Kasturi gives birth to a daughter, Chakor, on the night of a full moon. Tejaswini allows them to take her home for seven years; then she must be brought back to Rajvanshi to serve.

His father, Purshottam, is fearful of Bhaiyaji and tries to return Chakor to Rajvanshi. Ishwar is arrested on a false charge by Bhaiyaji, who argues that Ishwar kept Chakor in his home illegally in order to sell her.
