A foreboding element has a looming presence in the trailer of Devi where one sees nine women locked up in a room, forced to stand in solidarity even though they share different and conflicting dispositions. The short film, scheduled to release on Mach 2, will reveal the struggles of these fearless women as their tales of agony and exploitation will be showcased in the narrative. In the trailer, Kajol seems to lead the revolution as she plays the intermediary who takes charge of the brewing tension among the nine women.

Kajol had recently spoken about her character, Jyoti, to a national daily and revealed that the character had many differences and a few uncanny similarities with her. She spoke about the relevance of a film like Devi in today's day and age and said that it is one of the many ways in which issues of gender discrimination, abuse and violence have been spoken about on screen.
