Macbeth meets the Godfather in present-day Bombay. The Scottish tragedy set in the contemporary underworld of India’s commercial capital; two corrupt, fortune telling policemen (Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah respectively) take the roles of the weird sisters. Jahangir Khan/Abbaji (Pankaj Kapoor) is the aging leader of a criminal gang. Nimmi (Tabu) is his mistress. Members of the gang include Maqbool (Irrfan Khan), Kaka (Piyush Mishra) and his son Guddu (Ajay Gehi). Things turn ugly when his mistress, Nimmi, starts to have an affair with one of his men, Maqbool, who has aspirations of succeeding Abbaji one day. Nimmi and Maqbool plot and carry out his death; the sea plays the role of Birnham wood. Maqbools dreams come true when he takes over as the new underworld leader, without realizing that he, too, has become a target of another faction of Abbaji ‘s men…
