SR Rathod, a newly promoted sub-inspector in Anjanipur, discovers that chaos reigns supreme in every aspect of his life—his bike constantly malfunctions, luck evades him, and even the lights in his office flicker ominously. Meanwhile, Raghlo, a petty criminal driven by desperate circumstances, embarks on a daring scheme: the grandest heist of his criminal career, all in a bid to secure a future for his daughters and himself. In a brazen act, he steals Rathod’s prized medals, firearms, and uniforms.

Caught in the crosshairs of fate, Chhanalal, the influential figure in the community, harbors Raghlo, not out of goodwill but with a calculated intent to seek revenge. The situation escalates when Rathod’s superiors, oblivious to the theft, demand his firearm for the upcoming Republic Day procession, plunging Rathod into a state of utter confusion and jeopardy.

Determined to salvage his reputation and reclaim his stolen possessions, Rathod embarks on a relentless quest to apprehend the thief. With an eclectic team at his disposal and the support of a level-headed senior officer, Rathod navigates through the labyrinth of deceit and treachery in pursuit of justice.
