The film dramatizes the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police, where gangster Manya Surve was shot dead, which took place at the junction next to Dr. Ambedkar college, Wadala, Mumbai on 11 January 1982.
In a police van, ACP Afaaque Baaghran (Anil Kapoor) listens to the story which is narrated by a gangster Manya Surve (John Abraham)who is grievously injured with a bullet-riddled body.
Manohar Surve alias Manya Surve, is a decent student of Kirti College, Dadar. He is equally good in studies and in nature, who had just finished his exams even whilst Vidya is trying to distract him for answers. Vidya asks him why he doesn't give the answers and Manya replies that even though they are in love he will not do anything stupid to stop him being successful. Vidya understands and persuades Manya to take her to meet his parents. Whilst presenting his girlfriend Vidya Joshi (Kangna Ranaut) to his mother to discuss their marriage, Manya is interrupted by his older brother Bhargav Surve. Bhargav is a gangster who is after an underworld don named Bhaskar (Ranjeet).
Soon enough, Bhargav is attacked by Bhaskar's goons, and beaten up. Manya jumps in to save him and the two brothers end up killing one of the goons. It is now the day of Manya's exam results but before he can discover his grades, Manye and his brother are arrested by Insp. Ambolkar (Raju Kher) and end up in Yerawada Prison. In prison, another convict named Munir (Tusshar Kapoor) saves Manya from being attacked by a goon named Potya, during lunch time. In this assault, Bhargav is killed. Munir befriends Manya and another convict named Veera, trains Manya to become stronger. Manya trains and then eventually is challenged by Potya. Manya takes the lead by staying in front of Potya during the whole fight. Soon enough, Potya backfires and beats Manya up, in which response, Manya stabs Potya to his death.
Later on, both Manya and Munir escape from the prison, and try to tie hands with two brothers who rule Bombay's deals. The first brother, Zubair Imtiaz Kaskar (Manoj Bajpai) is cool, who is impressed by Manya. However, the second brother, Dilawar (Sonu Sood), disapproves of Manya and dislikes him. After this act Manya forms his own gang which consists of him, Munir, Veera and Gyancho, a sharpshooter, brought by Munir. Soon enough, Manya himself challenges the two Kaskar brothers, with a chilling story following, with Manya finishing off
Bhaskar (the gangster who had him and his brother arrested), Manya meeting up with Vidya again, and being revealed that at the start, Manya Surve had actually received 78% distinction in his exams.
