Plot

The film revolves around day-to-day political issues and corruption, centering on how some leaders make their money and lend support.

Vishwas Salunkhe (Ajinkya Deo) is a municipal assistant commissioner who is in charge of a Mumbai sub area where lots of chawl are in poor condition and he has posted notices to vacant those "Saptatara" where slabs and floors are partly collapsed and chawl-dwellers are not ready to vacant and chawl owners are not responding to the notices.

Salunkhe is not giving up on this issue, and Chief Minister Uttamrao Deshmukh (Yashvant Dutt), a chawl owner contact who has strong influence with him as a subscriber for the election fund, takes this issue seriously. Deshmukh calls Salunkhe and asks for the Saptatara file where all notices and documents are kept and hands him a special order to look after civil work in his future daughter-in-law's village's power supply. Salunkhe accepts the order and takes up duty at the village where he finds some residents, as their ancestral is being sold for electric towers and they become jobless, are opposing the order.

Meanwhile, Salunkhe receives news that Saptatara have collapsed. He immediately returns to Mumbai where he learns case file has vanished from the CM's office, but that the CM kept a copy in the bungalow where his son's marriage is taking place, as news correspondents Vaijayanti Patil (Ashwini Bhave) and Subodh Gore (Ashutosh Govarikar) come to cover the story of the event. Salunkhe asks his fiancee (Sukanya Kulkarni- Mone) to steal the file from CM's house and hand it over to him as he is suspended due to negligence of duties and is under depression so she agrees. While at a photo shoot Subodh Gore discovers something odd – laborers are doing odd work, such as carrying each other from one place to another. He shows this to Vaijayanti Patil, but she ignores it.

Lots of things happen in one night as the CM's daughter-in-law is kidnapped by her boyfriend and a Minister (Dilip Prabhavalkar), who is the political rival of the CM slaughters sheep near the Ganesh mandir in a protest against the CM but Salunkhe has footage of the slaughter which he shows to the CM, but as reward the CM kills Subodh Gore and Vaijayanti Patil then takes shock of the footage when Salunkhe finds his case file and the footage is shown in the film's final Mumbai Mantralay scene.
