OUATIM is about the rise, rise and fall of two gangsters who lived in Mumbai in the 70s and the 80s. Sultan Mirza (Devgn) is a kind-hearted gangster who’s risen from the grassroots to rule over Mumbai. Even as the police is hot on his heels, he takes steps to give himself a legitimacy. However, a new gangster, Shoaib (Emraan) is hungrier and meaner than Shoaib – which makes them at loggerheads.  Of course, the city is not big enough for both, taking them through a journey that’s fast spiraling into death and defeat.
