Very soon in his career he draws up an analogy about the several terrorist attacks that have been occurring in the country. Based on some proof and actual study of various attacks and their modes operandi, he is convinced that a man named Ikhlaq is the real mastermind behind all the terror attacks. Himmat deploys a team of remarkably skilled agents – Farooq, Ruhani, Juhi, Bala and Avinash – as his task force. Disguised and living in different parts of the world, the team’s sole objective is to get one step closer to the mastermind.
