When Anita Rajan, CEO of Sheppard power plant, an International company, brings a power plant proposal to set up in rural Maharashtra before the Nagres, an insightful Shankar is quick to realize the benefits the power plant can bring to the people. After convincing Sarkar who is against it for various reasons, Shankar undertakes a journey along with Anita to the villages of Maharashtra to mobilize support of the masses. However, things are not what they seem to be, from shady fixers with an eye on multi-million kick-backs or wannabe Shankar's that are ready to incite millions of people against the highly controversial project in a state that is witnessing the worst of coalition politics. Shankar's dream project gradually becomes a political minefield and the evil forces mightier than ever mushroom and gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankar's name from the political horizon.
