Story: Writers down the ages have always prided their skills to be superior to any warrior's. The written word is and has been one of the most potent weapons man has ever created. What happens when a writer feels he can wield the power of the word to create or rather conquer reality?
Shabd is the story of Shaukat, a gifted writer who's reeling from the critical failure of his last novel. Antara, his reticent and sensitive wife supports him indisputably. To regain his command on writing, Shaukat decides to incorporate his story into his real life and subsequently slot in the twists and turns of the real life incidents into his story. Antara comes across Yash, a man who's impossible not to fall in love with. However she does not show any romantic inclination towards him until her husband Shaukat asks her to diabolically indulge in a relationship with Yash for the sake of his story. Shaukat strongly believes that the real life escapades between Antara and Yash will add meat and heat to his story. But little does Shaukat realize that in his process Antara is actually fascinated by Yash. And then comes the twist in his story that he hadn't anticipated. But by the time he tries to change the direction in which his novel (and also his real life) are heading into it is a bit too late.
