Movie Synopsis:

A social commentary on the issue of naxalites, this film was released on Durga Puja. After a massacre of 84 policemen, Adil Khan (Arjun Rampal), is posted to Nandighat where he discovers that the Maoists effectively control the area. Lead by Rajan (Manoj Bajpayee), the Maoists thwart all of Adil’s effort repeatedly and he soon feels helpless. To his rescue comes his loyal friend Kabir (Abhay Deol) who infiltrate Rajan’s group and becomes Adil’s informer. With Kabir’s intelligence, Adil starts attacking the Maoists and eventually succeeds in capturing Rajan. However, Kabir discovers a different reality of the tribe and realises how they are exploited by their own government that forces them to be their own guards by holding a gun. Kabir is thus left in a Chakravyuh as to whom to support. A series of events hurtle him to make a difficult choice of getting into a war with his own friend Adil.
