Mumbai police inspector Sartaj Singh lives alone, having divorced his wife, and is disgusted by the corruption within the rest of the police force. He begins receiving calls from Ganesh Gaitonde, a wanted gangster who warns him that something destructive will happen in Mumbai within 25 days, and that everyone in the city will die except for someone named “Trivedi.” Gaitonde recounts his life story to Sartaj over the calls, and claims to know Sartaj’s late father, himself a policeman. Sartaj traces Gaitonde’s location to a discreet safehouse, but Gaitonde shoots himself in the head when he is confronted.
In flashbacks, Gaitonde speaks of having had “three fathers” along his path to becoming a criminal. The first, his biological father, was a village priest who was arrested for killing Gaitonde’s mother after she was unfaithful. Entering adulthood, Gaitonde befriends Mathu, a local who helps him run a Mandrax distribution ring on the streets until the two of them begin working for Salim Kaka, a ruthless regional crime lord and Gaitonde’s “second father.” Gaitonde murders Kaka in front of his men during a gold smuggling operation and earns early notoriety.
A mysterious phone call from an anonymous man leads police officer Sartaj Singh on a chase around Mumbai in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game.
