The film is set in the 1970s and showcases a small town named 'Chambal' ruled and dominated by dacoits. Multiple gangs fight to attain power. The cast dons fierce avatars in sync with the theme of the film.
This is the first time Sushant and Bhumi will be starring together in a film. It is a rural crime drama set in the backdrop of a village called Chambal. Earlier, on December 7, last year, Sushant released the first official teaser of the action drama with a new poster from the film where he can be seen sitting in a dry land donning dacoits outfits.
