The first-ever registered encounter by the Mumbai Police, which took place on November 1, 1982. After being sentenced to life in prison, an innocent man (John Abraham) escapes and vows to become the most powerful criminal in Mumbai, India.
When Inspector Mahadev Bhosale (Sanjay Dutt) is asked by his seniors to form a hit squad to take on the Mumbai underworld, he recruits Shiv Narayan (Rana Daggubati), an honest and brave police officer who had been suspended for an encounter killing. Together, Mahadev and Shiv along with others in the "Department" take on underworld don Sawatya (Vijay Raaz) and his gang. Sawatya, in spite of many exhortations by his number two, D.K. (Abhimanyu Singh), and D.K.'s feisty girlfriend, Naseer (Madhu Shalini), does not hit back at the police.
