Salunkhe is transferred to the village of the CM’s future daughter-in-law. There, he learns that ancestral homes of people are being sold for the construction of electric towers. Meanwhile, the documents relating to the chawls have disappeared from the CM’s office, but Salunkhe, now suspended from duty, learns that there is a copy at the CM’s residence where his son is getting married. During a photo shoot, news correspondent Subodh Gore (Ashutosh Gowariker) discovers a strange thing but is killed. The mystery unfolds amidst corruption and intense power play.
