Showing an account of the 1993 Mumbai explosions, the film opens with the deaths of DCP’s parents and ATS boss Veer “Surya” Sooryavanshi, who later discovers that a Lashkar boss and terrorist Omar Hafeez is planning more attacks.
He has formed a sleeper cell network consisting of 40 terrorists posing as Indians to set up more bombings after the 11/26 attacks, one of which is his son Riyaz Hafeez.
In Jaisalmer, Surya and his team catch Riyaz, who had a different identity there. Kabir Shroff, a senior at Surya, reveals that a full ton of RDX was brought to India, of which 400 kilograms were used during those bombings and the remaining 600 kilograms are still buried somewhere in India.
Surya plans to trap the remaining members of the Sleeper Cell, even as he remembers his wife Ria Gupta. 9 years ago Surya was wounded by a gunshot and Ria healed him.
They fell in love, got married, and became the parents of an Aryan son. 8 years later, Surya attempted to catch a man where Ria and Aryan were present, culminating in Aryan being shot.
Although he came out healthy, an angry Ria slapped Surya and told her that he couldn’t sacrifice her family just to fulfill her duty, and she left him, taking Aryan with her to Australia.
