The story is set in the backdrop of the country’s commercial capital, Mumbai. A series of murders of ostensibly unrelated people following the traditions of the uncanny murder cult, ‘Thuggee’, causes havoc in the mind of Santosh Wagh, the chief of the Indian Bureau of Private India, the best detective agency in the country.
A couple of trinkets left by the murderer with every victim are an add-on slipup. Santosh (an off-duty drunkard), with his team, Nisha Gandhe, ex member of CID, the tech wizard Hari Padhi, and the forensic expert Mubeen Yusuf is set on the trail of this vicious murderer.
A flashback into the life of the protagonist, Santosh and his accomplices in the race of solving the crime creates a multiple story. ACP Rupesh joins hands with Santosh (once best friends) but an untold stiffness is evident between the two.
The arrival of Jack Morgan, Santosh’s boss pulls a critical turn in the events. The suspects are few and the murders are unstoppable. Moreover, the festive season in the city of dreams is threatened by a terrorist attack on the ninth day of ‘Navratri’, the festival of worshipping Goddess Durga.
The involvement of a fierce mafioso and a godman brews unnoticed trouble. Will Santosh Wagh be able to reach in time to save the city from another terror campaign and the shadowy killer? What made the best of friends to turn into enemies? What makes Santosh suspect his own crew? Who is to be trusted and who isn’t?
