The death of a decorated war veteran, one of India’s foremost military officials, triggers a chain of events that threatens to spiral out of control. The democratically-elected government is overthrown and a new one is formed in its place. A fierce and pure regime that promises its people the kind of governance they have been deprived of. Just. Fair. Unyielding.
Operation Kalyug has begun.
Caught in the middle is Balamurali Selvam, a writer who is still tormented by the memories of his persecution at the hands of the erstwhile establishment. As the new government battles factions fighting for control, international intervention, personal agendas and incompatible motives, Selvam is swept along, a bewildered pawn in a high-stakes game.
Forced to question everything he has believed so far, even his innate sense of justice, Selvam struggles to choose sides. Will his instincts fail him when he needs them the most?
