(Released: Aug 25, 2017)
The film starts off with the introduction of a certain under trial named Machung Lalung, who gets justice after a long delay of many years. The film, then, introduces us to its lead characters Sanju (Aadar Jain) and Bindu (Anya Singh), the two undertrials who got victimised due of their respective circumstances. Due to their financial inabilities to fight their cases through a rich lawyer, their stay in the jail keeps on getting longer by the day. One day, on the account of the jail's anniversary, its superintendent (Sachin Pilgaonkar) announces the formation of a unisex musical band, comprising of talented undertrials. This, then, gives rise to the formation of Senaani Band, which comprises of Sanju, Bindu and three other members, who are also undertrials. No sooner the band performs in front of a minister and the media, they win their hearts and attention and become an instant internet sensation.
Around the same time, the Band also get a chance to perform with a leading rock band, who, in turn, tells them about a musical competition with a prize money of a whopping Rs. 50 lakhs. At the behest of buying new musical instruments from a musical shop in a mall, members plan to escape from the jail authorities so that they win the competition and hire a lawyer who can prove their innocence. Do members succeed in their plan to prove their innocence, does they manage to participate in the musical competition and win it, do the undertrials ever get the freedom that they are entitled to, is what forms the rest of the film.
