The universe of Sonchiriya consists of two kinds of people, dacoits and coppers. The gang of dacoits is led by Man Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) and he’s haunted by the ghosts of his past. The next aspiring leaders of the gang, Lakhan (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Vakil (Ranvir Shorey) make sure to protect their team from the police in a loot executed by Man Singh. When the things go south, the gang finds their way out from the city into the deep ravines.
On their way out escaping from the police, Vakil and gang have to let Indumati (Bhumi Pednekar) due to certain circumstances. They all get a reality check when the side of police gets stronger and are attacked by the natives of Indumati. Are they really running from the coppers or they’re running from themselves? The rest of the story explores the behavioural change of people who didn’t ‘want’ to be dacoits in the first place.
