Nusharat Bharucha as Mahima
A vivacious small town young girl, life has never been picture perfect for Mahima. Though married to the man of her dreams, Anuraag, the 'happily ever after life' eludes her. But her willpower and faith in Santoshi Maa helps her overcome all obstacles to complete her journey - from a young girl to a strong confident woman.
Rakesh Bapat as Anuraag
For Anuraag music is life and life is music. Happy-go-lucky by nature, he gets married to Mahima. And with her help and Santoshi Maa's blessings, transforms from a carefree boy into a man who dreams big and makes them come true.
Jai Santoshi Maa is about how Maa supports her devotees. It's a story about how undying faith in Santoshi Maa can redeem one's life. And how the divine intervention of the Goddess can change one's life entirely.
Jai Santoshi Maa is the story of Mahima (Nushrat Bharucha), an ardent devotee of Santoshi Maa and Anuraag (Rakesh Bapat), a musician by heart. It's a saga of all the hardships they face, with no complaints or regrets, and how they overcome these hardships with Santoshi Maa'a blessings.
Mahima's father is a music teacher and her mother a devotees of Maa. She is married to Anuraag, a young man whose passion is music. Since this marriage is against the will of Anuraag's family, its only hardships that come their way. Fed up with humiliation, Anuraag decides to try his luck elsewhere, where no one knows him. But Mahima decides to stay back and serve her in-laws. But what does she get in return? Misery, pain and distress from each and every member of the family.
With no shoulder to lean on, Mahima starts worshipping Santoshi Maa. She starts her 'solah-shukrawar vrats' and follows them religiously. She withstands everything that comes her way with a smile on her face and faith in her heart. Finally Maa is pleased. The Goddess not only makes all her wishes come true, but also blesses her husband with all the success he ever wished for.
This strong devotion of Santoshi Maa's devotees and how their conviction can change the lives of their near and dear ones is Jai Santoshi Maa.
