Synopsis: Ajay lives with his stern, honest, disciplinarian and Gandhian widowed father, Prof. (retd.) Raghuvansh Shastri. Ajay works as a salesman, but soon finds himself out of work. He applies for a position with the Police, but is turned down, even though he always makes it to the merit list. Finally he borrows 5 lakh rupees to bribe his way on the merit list, & soon his name is shown on the shortlist. Just before his selection, major differences crop up between Home Minister Dinkar Pandey and his dad, with the later threatening to expose the corruption within the State Ministry. Dinkar ensures that Ajay's name is dropped from the shortlist, and the money-lender sends his goons after him, giving him 3 days to come up with the money. A desperate Ajay decides to be part of the lucrative kidnapping scheme in Bihar, abducts a Government official and demands a ransom so that he can re-pay his loan. Unfortunately, this Government official was under the protection of underworld Don, Gaya Singh, who

The police had raided

Patel area in Delhi...

...and freed Mohit from the

grasp of the abductors.

It has been 40 days.

The Government has still not

replied to our allegations.

Through the press I've exposed...

...the list of fake co-operative


Shastri-ji, what will

your next step?

I have decided to give Chief

Minister Brijnath Mishra...

...and Co-operatives Minister

Daya Shankar a week's notice.

And if that fails then Satyagraha.

It's futile to send the government

one notice after another.

Here my child's breakfast

is not ready.

Will this daily lecturing

fill anyone's stomach?

Stop racing around. First eat the

puri. - No! I'll get late Buchhi kaka.

Have at least 2, dear.

How will you carry this load

with an empty stomach?

I'm late! Kashi is waiting outside.


Oh God!

With the policies, this coalition

government is adopting...

...there is more likelihood of

destruction than development.

Here's your late fine.

Drop me at Kalyani chowk.

I've to go to City Medical.

What's the point of

wandering on foot?

I'll drop you to City Medical.

This Vishnu Sharma is acting like

we've come to loot his shop.

Forget it. You go. See

you in the evening.

Hello, Mr. Sharma.

- Greetings.

You again?

How many times I've told you.

That indigenous medicine

doesn't sell.

What are you saying, Mr. Sharma?

These Ayurvedic medicines have

become a rage in London and America.

The company has come out

with new tablets...

...for hypertension

and blood pressure.

Oh! In that case give me

a pill for hypertension.

The very sight of you

stresses me out!

Come on, Mr. Sharma.

- Hi. - Hi.

How are you?

- Fine.


Give me these medicines

except the two on top.

El-thro-cin... five hundred.

Two strips.

So Mr. Sharma, what should I book?

I told you. I don't want anything.

- Okay, I'll come tomorrow.

But sir, at least clear

the old payment.

What payment?

Can't you see all your stocks

are still lying on the shelves!

Please! The company

is pressurizing me!

They're giving me reminder

after reminder.

So take away all your

stock from here!

It's just eating up the space

for nothing. Lallan.

Yes, sir.

Remove the Vindhyachal stock.

Sharma-ji, there's no need for

this! Let it be, friend.

I'll come back next week.

Till then please let me

put up this publicity.

Which company do you work for?

- Vindhyachal Ayurvedic.

He's working for part time.

We're trying at the Ranchi

Medical College for Megha.

She will do her post-graduation


Even Ajay has given the State

Police Service competitive exam.

He has done well in the interview

and the physical.

The merit list will

be out any day now.

Done, Mr. Sharma?

Help! Hey! Run!






BRE-7931. That's the number.

- Have you gone mad?

They've gone that way!

- They were firing!

Yes, sir... I'm at the crime scene.

I'm coming. What's

the situation like?

There is tension. But things

are under control now.

Find out where they've gone.

- Sir!

Alert everyone at the police

station. - Right, sir.

Sir, I tried to stop them.

They've gone towards Phulpur Chowki!

Who are you?

My name is Ajay Shastri.

Professor Rahguvansh Shastri

is his father.

Sir, his uncle was

also in the force.

Inspector Balwant Shastri.

He was a very bold officer.

He was martyred at the Lalsingh

gang encounter.

This is the total failure

of law and order, brothers.

In broad daylight, a trader

is kidnapped from the market!

Down with the police department!

Calm down. This is not

the time for a strike.

Down with SP Khan!
