Raghu Kumar is a young trainee Indian Police Service (IPS) officer. During the course of his training, he is being taught cycle patrolling in the streets when the head constable giving training comes out with certain startling revelations. This head constable gives an honest confession about his largely corrupt activities in the detection branch of Kotwali Police Station and how one incident changed his life, and which made him give up corruption and take to honesty.
Overwhelmed in emotions, this IPS officer and his wife resolve not to earn bribes in the police as that would be an unforgivable sin - A Carnage by Angels! But as this officer goes to the district police in Kolhapur and then to Mumbai police, he starts confronting the real picture. What he saw was a profound nexus of police, bureaucrats, power-brokers, and politicians - all hidden by the glittering curtain of "Rule of Law" and administrative sophistication. As this emotional story unfolds, what emerges in the film is a graphic narration of intrigue, deceit, sex, love and money in the world of glamour, police, bureaucracy, politicians, citizens, corporate bodies, powerbrokers, doctors and media.
