Story


Drona is a 2008 Indian Bollywood fantasy film released on Oct 02, 2008. The film is directed by Goldie Behl, produced by Goldie Behl under banner named Eros International.

When time itself was a newborn baby, the universe has kept one secret carefully hidden within. A secret, which if unraveled, could cause the destruction of mankind and the entire universe. Only one man can protect the universe's precious secret and thus, save the human race from absolute annihilation. He is Drona.

Far away in a distant land, there was Aditya raised by foster mother. He was unaware of his destiny. Only, sometimes he used to wake up in his dreams with image of a magical blue rose petal, which came wafting in the wind and always made him smile through his tears. Riz Raizada, a descendent of asura is becoming impatient in thirst of a secret, which will allow him to rule the world. However, he has to defeat Drona to get to the secret. One day, Aditya and Riz came face to face and Riz could identify him, but Aditya could not. And before he knew, his life started a new journey. Aditya could not understand, why Riz's men are after him and just before he was going to be captured, a cult group which believed Drona to be their saviour saved him.

Sonia, the leader of the cult told him about his true identity. Aditya could not believe, and Sonia took him went to his real mother, Queen Jayati Devi of Pratapgarh to tell him about his destiny, but before she could embrace him, Riz and his army caught hold of him. With Sonia, the leader of the cult, Drona will discover skills, he never knew he possessed. He will take on the mantle to fight the absolutely lethal Riz. However, will Drona's nightmares come in his way of victory and defeating evil Riz? Will he be able to overcome his fears?

Rooted in the vibrant fabric of Indian mythology, Drona is a compelling modern tale of one man's spectacular voyage through the labyrinths of mystic myths and legacies. It is a journey that will force him to face his fears upfront and make him become the hero he was born to be.

As good and evil clash in this contemporary fantasy fable, a breathtaking journey beckons you into a world of mythic heroes and malicious magicians, enchanted lands, life altering choices, of cunning curses and absolute innocence. A world, where spells can turn live-flesh into cold stone. A world, whose whispers lay closely guarded in a land of mirages. A world thriving with thrills, a world of mystical magic, a world where adrenalin bursts out into a riot of colours. A world of audacious adventures and of fantastic folklores.

Drona is a slick, twenty first century tale that travels across continents but is profoundly and proudly Indian.
