    The film retells the famous Pune legend of the Chaphekar brothers (followers of Bal Gangadhar Tilak) whose violent anti-British activities led to their martyrdom. Charles Walter Rand imposed martial law in Pune because of an outbreak of the plague in January 1897, and the eldest brother, Damodar kills Rand on 22 June. In retaliation, Inspector Brewin starts a massive manhunt using former colleagues of the three brothers as informers. Damodar is hanged, despite Tilak's personal appeal to the British. When the youngest brother, Vasudev, kills the informer who helped Inspector Brewin, he and the remaining brother Balkrishna, are also sentenced to death.
