Jai Singh Rathod is celebrating his wife Trisha's birthday with their daughter Kiran when he is called into his job at the Anti Terrorist Unit. They have learned of a threat to assassinate newly elected Prime Minister Aditya Singhania, and Jai must investigate and uncover the terrorist plot. Meanwhile, Kiran sneaks out of the house to meet Rohit and Dev Sharma, who kidnap her under orders from the terrorist leader Yakub Syed. Trisha tries to find Kiran, but an impostor gains her trust before kidnapping her also.

Yakub uses Jai's family to coerce him into helping the assassin Gajavathanan, but Jai manages to keep Aditya alive. Wanted by the authorities, Jai is assisted by his colleague Nikita Rai and locates his family. He manages to rescue them and kill Yakub. Jai is taken back to ATU for a debrief and Nikita looks after his family. However, it is revealed that Yakub was being paid by Raja Talapathi and Bala Ravindran, members of the LTFE who are seeking revenge on Jai and Aditya for a mission several years ago.

Gajavathanan targets Trisha and Kiran while Roshan goes after Veer, Jai's son who is at a military academy. Trisha and Kiran escape, but Trisha is badly wounded in a car crash and is taken to hospital. Veer becomes involved in a drug deal gone wrong, and Roshan ends up kidnapping him. Meanwhile Jai traps Bala through his relationship with Pooja Bharadwaj, and follows a lead to a secret prison containing Ravindran, the LTFE leader he thought he killed ten years ago.

Raja breaks Ravindran out of the jail, and they use Veer to force Jai to assist in another attempt on Aditya's life. Again Aditya survives, and Jai makes his way to the docks to confront Ravindran and Raja. He kills them both and rescues his son, then makes his way to Aditya's hotel to stop the final assassination attempt. After saving his life once more, Aditya's sister Divya is revealed to be in league with Ravindran, and she is arrested. In the final minutes of the day, Trisha dies from her injuries.
