The Idea of “Department”
Alarmed at the hitherto unseen escalation in underworld criminal activities some top officials including the home secretary, the home minister, and the director general of police hold a secret meeting in which they take a decision to create a new unit which is unofficially referred to as “The Department”.
They summon a man (Sanjay Dutt) who had a certain reputation in the police to head “The Department” and he in turn choses a team to assist him.
This man and a protégé (Rana Daggubati) of his from the team emerge in the front line of the department’s operations and under the tutelage of a gangster turned politician (Amitabh Bachchan) in no time literally finish off the underworld but in the due process they become the underworld themselves.
“Department” is going to be primarily about the circumstances under how these two men were parented and about their deadly relationship with each other.
"Department" is above all a story of a terrifying power struggle within the bowels of the mother of all powers --- the police “Department”.
