The movie is rumored to be a sort of bio-pic about the life of lawless, corrupt criminal Abudal Latif. The makers of the film reject the notion of this saying that it’s only a movie. It’s don’t represent any real life person. He is a mastermind of this local ring. He is and will do anything not only to get his money. But, also to keep his place at the top of the heap.
