    • Synopsis
    • In parallel to this mission, we dig into the lives of these informers before they’re recruited, to provide a glimpse into their world of crime, deceit & constant peril. As the mission unfolds, you see how their perception makes them an invaluable resource.

      Their unique perception of this world is driven less by duty, more by greed. They are always on the prowl, seeking out information of value like wolves seek prey, calculating the most profitable time and place to deliver. It’s a high risk, high reward vocation, where even a slight mis-stepping could be the end of them.

      While investigations into terror attacks were top priority for the Mumbai Crime Branch, the IB and RAW, Ahmad, Rahim and Sadeteen found themselves gathering vital pieces of information along-with ACP Satyamev Naik, with their paths crossing each other during various vantage points.

      Murky bylanes that hold the key to deadly terror plots. The unravelling of a conspiracy “The Karachi Project” that shook our nation. The lives of three of Mumbai’s best informers collide in this shady underworld of crime, sex, drugs, murder and betrayal. Then begins the chase… to catch India’s most wanted terrorist: Riyaz Bhatkal, the man with an ominious track record of master-minding 22 blasts across the country since 2005.
      Our story is a silent salutation to the unacknowledged covert patriots out there.
