11th January 1982.

Until that day,

there were no major skirmishes...

between the Bombay police

and the underworld...

that the public remembered.

I was all fired up...

to change the course of history.

I am...

Manya Surve!

I am Assistant Commissioner

of Police, Afaaque Baagraan.

I was to change

the course of history.

Until that day, the police force was

shackled by laws and directives.

I unshackled them!

This is the tale of that

very first police encounter.




what's the answer

to the fifth question?

Show me.


Yes 7


What's up, Manohar?

All good.

Through with your tests?

Yes .

How did you do?


How long are you going to sulk?

You look better when you smile.

Here... - Don't talk to me!

Couldn't you help me?

It was one question...

What's wrong is wrong and...

'And I never do anything wrong!'

Tell me something...

we've been seeing each

other for four years.

We love each other but you've

never taken me to your place...

you haven't introduced

me to your mother yet!

Now isn't that wrong?

All in good time.

'All in good time!'

I haven't met your family yet, wonder

when you will meet my family!

I will do both!

But first stop sulking

and stop fighting.

You fight when someone hurts you...

And it hurts when you love someone.


Have this.

Will you marry me even if

your mother doesn't approve of me?

No way!

I'll go with my mother's choice.




This is Vidya.

I told you about her.

Season's greetings.

Today is a very auspicious day!

Come in...

Manya is lucky to have you.

What's a sweet girl

like her doing with you?


she loves him.

And why not?

This family is famous

for two things.

Mom's chicken gravy

and her blue-eyed boy.


Aren't you on the run?

On the run for what?

Just because I beat up Bhatkars

goon and broke his ribs?

When you aren't here,

Bhatkars goons harass us.

They ask about you.

How long do we continue like this?

When will this be over?

It will be over soon, trust me.

Once I get rid of Bhatkar,

everything will be fine.

Don't think about this.

You should think

about Manya's wedding.

It will be a grand event.

We'll put up lights for three

days and play movies for everyone.

Bhargav. - Manohar.

What the.. Leave me.

Leave me.

Leave me.


why don't you do something?

What if he is your step-brother?

Save him...

Or he will die.

Save him...

I've grown up with

what you saw today.

My step-dad could barely

afford to feed us...

but he beat the hell out of us!

My mom...

she was so busy saving

me from his rage"

...that she forgot to save herself.

That is why graduating from

college is very important for me.

I could have told you

the answer during the test...

but I don't want to do anything

that will bring down my ambition.

Once I graduate and get a job...

I will walk away from it all.

Don't worry, Manohar.

Everything will be okay.

Can you not be on time for once?

The test results are out today.

I went to the temple to pray.

Oh please!

My mom and dad will be here soon.

But first the results.

You have to meet them.

Of course!

Oh yes.

- Vishal...

- Yes.

Roll number 118...

what did I score?

Let me check.


Section 302.

What will you do with the result?

Even if the ink in

your pen is clean...

you have rogue blood

running through your veins.

What did I do?

You and your brother

are charged with murder.

But I did nothing.

Why are you hitting me?

Are you embarrassed of

being hit in front of everyone?

Weren't you embarrassed

when you committed murder?

This is not right, sir.

You stopped a policeman?

How dare you?

Why are you beating him up?


What's going on?

Who is he?

I don't know.

Open it.

Please let me go.

I studied hard so that I could

be an honest family man like you.


Ho nest?

What makes you think I am honest?

My own kids think I'm a scoundrel.

Sir, this will ruin my life.

Please, I did nothing wrong.

You are right.

You did nothing wrong.

Your father did everything wrong.

He gave birth to two rascals!

Book him under section 302!


Get in!

To hell with Bombay Police!

You tricked me...

you betrayed--

Shut up!

Shut up!

Your game is over.

- Pawar...

- Yes sir.

- Take us to Sion Hospital.

- Okay.

All of you have betrayed us.

If you had respected

the police uniform.. wouldn't be down in the dust.

I'll be down in the dust

the day I turn into ash.

I am still alive.

Your bullets turned

out to be useless.

I'm surprised...

your blood seems to have run dry...

but you haven't lost the nerve!

You know, destiny gives everyone

their fair share of life...

but now your destiny

has reached it's end.

First bring the criminals

sentenced for life.

Come on.

Get in line. Move.

He won't be hungry.

Rather than let your

share of food go waste,

it's better that Sheikh Munir

has everything from your plate.

You shared your meal with me,

so I owe you.

Otherwise you would be lying

on this table like your brother.

Remember this...

in here you can fight,

kill or be killed.

But you can't talk.

Never talk to the jailer.

Get it?

Who was it?

I don't know.

I didn't see the face.

It's your first day in here

and you're talking like a pro!

If your fancy dress competition

is over, can I leave?

Let them go and lock

up Potya in a solitary cell.
