Santosh follows the compelling journey of Santosh, a young widow portrayed by Shahana. Thrust into the role of a police constable after her husband’s death, Santosh’s idealism collides with a harsh reality – rampant corruption and prejudice within the rural Indian police force. Early reviews for the film have reportedly been positive, commending the film’s gripping narrative and the actors’ stellar performances.

Sources stated that critics were particularly impressed by Shahana’s portrayal of Santosh. They highlighted her ability to transform from a naive recruit into a determined investigator, showcasing her strength and resilience amidst adversity.
