Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap explores the events following the March 2, 1993, bombings that ripped through Mumbai, India while simultaneously offering a cinematic study on just how such a tragedy can change a city in this adaptation of the book by author S. Hussain Zaidi. Mumbai has been decimated by a series of powerful bombs, and now top cop Rakesh Maria (Kay Kay Menon) is determined to apprehend the culprits responsible for plunging the city into chaos. Soon after discovering several more vehicles leaded down with bombs, Maria discovers that Tiger Menon, a powerful businessman from the Muslim area of Mahim, has been shifting funds in the Mumbai underworld in order to finance the bombings. Now, as the bombers shuttle quickly from one location to another with police hot on their trail, it's only a matter of time before the authorities learn the whole story.
