Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut) is a dacoit-turned-politician, who loses the seat of Gwalior to the Tomars who have thugged the adivasis out of their lawful lands. The political nexus begins its play and the kingmakers at work begin their job on resurrecting Alka to power.
Amidst all of this, Alka finds a new interest, her toy boy Rohan (Vir Das). With Bollywood aspirations in hand, he is here to use Alka to get successful and vice versa as Alka uses him to satiate her sexual fantasies and thirst. Rohan ends up being used in the game in turn but the story is about whether Alka manages to attain power or settle for being an powerless woman in a man's world!
