Vikram Rudraju (Vishwak Sen) is a police officer in the Telangana Crime Investigation Department and works in the Homicide Intervention Team “HIT”. He is very smart and sharp and solves crucial cases with his ability to capture even the smallest of details, thus earning the trust of his senior Viswanath (Bhanu Chander). He is in love with Neha (Ruhani Sharma), his colleague and a forensic official. Rohit (Chaitanya Sagiraju) is Vikram’s close friend and his colleague, who accompanies him in most of his cases. Vikram is constantly in an argument with Abhilash (Maganti Srinath), another officer, who crosses lines with Vikram. Vikram occasionally suffers from PTSD due to his past experience and refuses to take pills as he believes it slows down his abilities.
Meanwhile, a girl named Preethi (Sahiti) is driving on the highway, and her car stops to the side because it suffers a malfunction. Officer Ibrahim (Murali Sharma), stops to help her, and she calls her father since she forgot her phone at her home. When her father comes to pick her up, he sees that she has gone missing and Ibrahim says that she got into a blue car and he thought it was his car. When Preethi’s parents approach Ibrahim demandingly, he remains firm and insults them. Being a good friend of Preethi’s parents, Viswanath decides to suspend Ibrahim because of how he acted and since he does not believe him.
