Sooryavanshi (2021)

During the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Veer “Surya” Sooryavanshi loses his parents where he becomes motivated to become an ATS officer. Years later, Bilal Ahmed, the blasts’ mastermind seeks refuge with dreaded terrorist Omar Hafeez at POK, as they begin planning more such attacks. Omar’s son Riyaaz Hafeez has formed a sleeper cell network consisting of 40 terrorists who pose as Indians, aiming to conduct more bombings after the 26/11 attacks. Surya is now the DCP and ATS chief where he plans an operation in Jaisalmer, and manages to kidnap Riyaaz who was hiding his identity.

Joint CP and Surya’s senior officer Kabir Shroff, who was the only person able to fully solve the case, reveals about a full ton of RDX which was brought to India, of which 400 kgs were used during the 1993 bombings and the remnant 600 kgs are still buried somewhere in the country. Surya plans to catch the sleeper cell’s remaining members. He also tries to reconcile with his estranged wife Dr. Ria Gupta, with whom he parted ways due to a misunderstanding, but to no avail. Surya comes across Islamic priest Kader Usmani, who is in fact a terrorist and Bilal’s aide. Usmani meets Bilal, whose residence in Sawantwadi houses the wanted 600 kgs of RDX. They remove the buried RDX and prepare for the next bombings. Bilal reaches Mumbai with the help of taxi driver John Mascarenhas who left for Bangkok.
