Ram Gopal Varma is back in Bollywood after a long gap and this time he is in the mood to tell us the tale of one of India's most dreaded bandit, Veerappan.
The docu-drama thriller revolves around the search of Veerappan (Sandeep Bhardwaj) by a group of police officers headed by Kannan (Sachiin Joshi). Kannan is a non-conformist, one who would willingly flout rules as long as Veerappan is captured. The film begins directly with the planning of Operation Cocoon. It tracks the team’s attempts to corner Veerappan. Priya (Lisa Ray) is hired by Kannan to befriend Muthulakshmi (Usha Jadhav), so that the STF can get closer to her husband Veerappan.
