A mysterious sniper is contacted by an aged secret agent, V. K. Naidu, based in New Delhi, to kill a target, Farid Haqqani, from a distance. However, the sniper instead shoots Naidu and escapes. He is revealed to be former RAW agent Kabir Dhaliwal, considered one of the agency’s best who has now gone rogue.
Shortly after, Kabir’s former boss and RAW joint secretary, Col. Sunil Luthra, relays Kabir’s betrayal to Defence Minister Sherna Patel, who calls for the agency to summon Khalid Rahmani, another RAW agent who was previously mentored by Kabir and is in full awe of the former mentor. Khalid is now assigned to eliminate Kabir and accepts the mission. A flashback shows Khalid’s introduction to Kabir, who questions Sunil about Khalid’s loyalty to the nation arguing that Khalid’s father was a traitor to both the nation and to Kabir himself when he shot him. Khalid, who regards Kabir as his major inspiration, insists that he will serve his country, no matter what, and regain his family’s honour.
