Essentially "Company"is the story of two gangster friends, their relationship with each other, their conflicts, and their final split. Chandu ( Vivek Oberoi), the younger of the two men, lives in a chawl area with his mother. He is invited to join the gang by Mallick( Ajay Devgan). Mallick is in love with Saroja (Manish Koirala), while Chandu falls in love with his friend's sister, Kannu (Antara Mali). The two women have an interesting friendship in the film.
Mallick and Chandu together create havoc and terror in Mumbai, as gang activities move across the world, with different members looking after their respective territorial responsibilities. What makes "Company" distinguished from others is its syndicate gangster world, which is structured as a well-oiled totalitarian machine with immense international power
Chandu's life in " Company" is essentially portrayed as the journey of an individual with a mind of his own. Chandu's rise in the gang, his differences with Mallick, and their final conflict ultimately take Chandu on a path of renunciation that will make him redeem himself of his criminal past. In this journey, the individual is rescued from the larger space of the gang and removed to another space where legal order can be restored.
