Raja (Gashmeer Mahajani) is the adopted son and sharpshooter of Dongri’s most famous don Mansoor Ali (Ronit Roy). Mansoor wants Raja to success his place after his death, so he trained him faithfully and treated him as his blood son. Raja never failed any mission given by Mansoor. When killing people, Raja always wears a police uniform with the name of Siddhanth (Ashmit Patel), to pretend to be a police officer conducting operations, which makes Siddhanth blamed for many times. During one of his operations, Raja meets Shruti and falls for her. However, Raja feels hopeless for his love to Shruti because of his profession, so he lies to her by saying he’s a house agent. Unaware of Raja’s real identity and profession, Shruti gradually falls for him too.
Inspector Siddhant, who’s in charge of Mansoor’s case, disappoints his senior for his failure to close the case in the promised time. Damie (Kamlesh Sawant), another of his seniors blames him too for not only he failed to collect evidence against Mansoor, but Mansoor’s men started killing people, which never happened before he took over the case. Their senior then decides to transfer this case to Damie. Damie, in fact, is a corrupted officer who’s bribed by and works for Mansoor, after he takes over the case, he solved the murder committed by Mansoor’s men easily. He arrests an innocent man and threatens to kill him to make him claim responsibility for those murders, and state he has no relation with Mansoor, in front of a video camera. After the innocent man “pleads guilty” in the video, Damie kills him as is hence praised by his senior, news media, and Mansoor too.
Shruti invites Raja to a religious ceremony held in the area ruled by Daya (Sacheen Suvarna), Raja and Mansoor’s enemy. Raja’s fellows try to discourage him from risking his life to attend the ceremony, but Raja insists to meeting Shruti. During the ceremony, Raja is seen and attacked by Daya but he manages to survive and is admitted to a hospital. In the hospital, Siddhanth shows up and tries to reveal Raja’s real identity to Shruti, whose love Raja won by cheating. However, Raja denies Siddhanth’s accusation and Shruti chooses to believe her lover.
After Raja returns home, he and Shruti confess their love to each other, but his love distracts him largely from his jobs, making him hide it from Mansoor. Mansoor always wants Raja to fulfill his dream, that is to be another don like him, as Raja’s mother (Ashwini Kalsekar) thinks father’s dream is less important than son’s love and happiness.
