The story as previously mentioned revolves around an Indian gangster, Ganesh Gaitonde who is responsible for multiple murders and crimes in 80's and 90's Bombay. Nawazuddin aka Ganesh who goes underground for dismissing trouble, plans to resurface the streets of Mumbai once again.While planning his return, Ganesh makes a call to none-other-than the tough cop Saif Ali Khan aka Sartaj Singh. Now, the main reason behind calling Sartaj was that Ganesh does not trust anyone (not even his partners) but Sartaj Singh.
He plans to pull multiple heists in the city and informs Sartaj that he has only 25-days to save Mumbai. But surprisingly, Sartaj Singh kills Gaitonde who leaves behind a box. Now, Sartaj gets more anxious and confused about what will happen after the 25th-day.
