When a petty thief impersonates a dacoit chief and tries to rule the villages with his tyranny, a blood feud erupts and continues for three generations from pre-Independence days to the start of 21st century.



Shahid Khan (Jaideep Ahlawat), a Pathan, takes advantage of the mysteriousness of the faceless dacoit Sultana, a Qureshi, by impersonating his identity to rob British ferry trains. He is soon exiled for impersonating the legendary Sultan dacoit. Now outcast, Shahid becomes a worker at Ramadhir Singh's colliery, only to spur a revenge battle that passes on to generations. He calculates a well-planned stratagem to take revenge. At the turn of the decade, Shahid's son, the philandering Sardar Khan (ManojBajpai) vows to get his father's honor back, becoming the most feared man of Wasseypur.
