And to add to the twist, the murder suspects are the closest to Yudi, his entourage- Neelu, Greshma, Shashank, Dhaval, Kush and Yogesh.
Abhimanyu, who leads the investigation, also has a past with them all. The story unravels about what happened in these eight years, leading to Yudhveer’s brutal assassination.

Yudi decides to be a part of the college elections. It is his first stepping stone, and we see Yudi’s true nature, who he really is. Yudi had a knack of not simply convincing people, but ensuring that they are eating off his palms in minutes.
It was as if Yudi’s basic natural instinct to determine a person’s greed, desire and secrets, and how he used exactly those things, to get everything he wanted. He was artistic with his manipulation, and driven with blind ambition to never stop.
