They would willingly give one eye if it means blinding the two eyes of the other.
The arrival of a new police commissioner changes everything. And soon the four find themselves facing a common enemy. Uniting to try out some other business, they fall into the grip of one-man-show director (Sanjay Mishra) who assures them that he will make them superstars.
