This is the district town of Tejpur, with an ensemble of colourful characters, Sadhu Yadav, the kingpin, his debauched son Sundar, the corrupt, beedi smoking Bhurelel, the police chief and the self-righteous journalist Rabidas. It is here that Amit Kumar (Ajav Devgun) is transferred as the new Superintendent of Police. Apalled at what he sees, Amit tries to breathe some life into the demoralized police force. Some officers accept his honesty and respond. Only one, Bachcha Yadav, makes the choice to transform his life. But the system is too entrenched. Blocked at every turn, inspiration gives way to frustration and a weapon of revenge is accidentally discovered. The cleansing of the wrongdoer with Gangaajal (a metaphorical reference to mythical powers of the waters of the river Ganges), the cleansing that absolves all sins and makes one pure.

Being raised in India amidst corruption, brutality, squalor I have seen how ordinary folks ( like the police office of this movie) make huge ethical decisions every minute - people tell small lies to save the big truth. When I sit in MBA classes in the US and listen inane fetid professors lecture on corporate ethics etc, it makes me laugh and cry at the same time.
Some people in the US ( and of course in other parts of the world) have made a living out of crying about genuine or alleged violation of rights. There are of course several great genuine human rights activists who who balanced views and do recognize the severe constraints that law enforcements officials work under, and the challenging conditions and low pay of their profession. The latter type of acttivists have my utmost respect, the former my lowest contempt.
Anyways back to the movie - it does have its weak points, but overall a good attempt to depict the troubles of Bhagalpur - I only hope the depiction was real, and in fact no innocents were needlessly punished.
