A dark, violent crime story set in the darkest depths of the megacity Mumbai, where serial killer Ramanna is on a rampage, inspired by the real-life Raman Raghav, who killed over 40 people in the 1960s. The copycat’s first victim is none other than run-down cop Raghavan’s drug dealer. The pyschopath starts stalking the cop he takes to be a kindred spirit.
