In 1947, Vinayak Rao tells his 14-year-old son Pandurang about the Goddess of Prosperity. Vinayak explains that the goddess gave birth to 160 million gods, but Hastar was her first and most beloved offspring. However, Hastar was greedy and gluttonous, and wanted all of the goddess’ gold and food for himself. The other gods attacked Hastar, but the goddess saved him on the condition that he could never be worshipped and would be forgotten by history. Vinayak goes on to explain that their people built a shrine that woke up Hastar. Although the village of Tumbbad became plagued with rain, Vinayak’s family was able to benefit from Hastar’s curse provided they were willing to risk venturing into the goddess’ womb in the earth where Hastar dwells.
Naachiyaar (Jyothika) is a tough policewoman in Chennai who is put in charge of solving an underage rape case. She tracks down a pregnant Arasi (Ivana), the victim, from her uncle and his goons who plan to get her an abortion. Although Naachiyaar saves Arasi, her uncle and his friends escape and go into hiding. Meanwhile, Naachiyaar’s partner, Feroz arrests the suspect, Kaathu (G.V. Prakash Kumar). He is then sent to a juvenile home, where he tells his story to one of the wardens, who is soft-hearted towards him.
Through flashbacks, we see how Kaathu and Arasi first met. Both are still teenagers from the slums but they do not go to school but are forced to work to help support their respective families. Arasi works as a maid at wealthy families’ homes while Kaathu does odd jobs for a living. One day, while her employers are away, Arasi invites Kaathu into the house where they (impulsively) make love. However, Arasi quickly regrets and pushes Kaathu away, who leaves upset.
The film begins with Professor Tiwari (Pankaj Kapur) being interviewed about police encounters and bids to eradicate organised crime from Lucknow and its surrounding areas. It then showcases Ajay Kumar (Arshad Warsi). Since he was young, Ajay has been traumatised by the death of his army officer father, who killed himself when accused of being a deserter, leaving his widow Prabha (Suhasini Mulay) to bring up Ajay on her own. Ajay studies hard and successfully becomes an Indian Police Service officer with the title of Senior Superintendent of Police of Lucknow. Due to his honesty, he gets transferred to various states in India, around 14 times in eight years. At his new posting in Uttar Pradesh, he comes to terms with a new criminal boss and ruthless killer, Gajraj Singh (Sushant Singh). Ajay engineers the setting up of a Special Task Force to deal with Gajraj. However, he also runs into problems as Gajraj is politically well-connected. Gajraj continues to elude the Task Force, using more modern technology such as the use of cell phones. But the Task Force recovers and is able to monitor Gajraj’s cell phones with the help of Prof. Tiwari. They find out that Gajraj is planning to contest the elections and if he wins, no police officer of any rank, even the Task Force, would then dare to arrest him or even consider him a suspect, which may well result in the Task Force being mere paper tigers. They have a final confrontation inside a train which leaves from Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station. All the officers in the Task Force as well as members of Gajraj’s gang kill each other in the fight, leaving Prof. Tiwari as the only witness.
