Plot

edit

Four Lucknow-based female police officers and one male officer work at a Mahila police station which consists of SHO Haseena Mallik, SI Karishma Singh, Head Constable Pushpa Singh, Constable Santosh Sharma, and male Constable Cheeteshwar Chaturvedi. They are helped by prisoner-turned-spy Billeshwar Champat. Karishma Singh is short-tempered, and Haseena Malik is emotional in solving cases; this sometimes creates a conflict between them.

DSP Anubhav Singh is a negotiation specialist and the cousin of Karishma, who sorts out the differences between them. Love blossoms between Haseena Malik and Anubhav Singh. Haseena proposes to Anubhav; he accepts, but she later learns that he pretended to love her for a national-security mission. After succeeding in the mission, Anubhav realises that he was wrong to have used Haseena and he was in love with her from the beginning. He apologises, declares his love, and proposes marriage. She turns him down, fearing another heartbreak. However, they become closer. Haseena eventually accepts Anubhav's proposal. Anubhav is then ordered to leave his fiancée and his city for a national-security mission which could cost him his life. He sends Haseena away with Karishma’s help, knowing that staying with him would endanger her life.

The Mahila Thana gets a humanoid, ASI Mira, for a 90-day trial of teaching human emotions. However, Karishma feels that the robot is trying to take the place of human police officers. Karishma and Meera solve cases together. Returning to her police station, Haseena collides with a secret agent who delivers a hard disk with the details of all secret agents in the country. The leader of the perpetrators, who killed the agent after failing to get the disk from him, hacks Mira to obtain it. He orders her to kill Haseena, Mira’s friend and colleague. Mira fires her gun, realising what she has done later. She alerts everyone in the police station about the hack. They discover that Mira has developed emotions which Haseena wanted to give her, but they have to dismantle her to prevent further hacking.

A month later, Pushpa and Karishma meet Urmila Mahadev Mhatre in Mumbai: Haseena's lookalike,[5] a Marathi vada pav seller. Karishma plans to take Urmila to Lucknow, pretending that she is Haseena Malik; this will help her catch Haseena’s killers. Urmila is actually Haseena in disguise, who was following orders from secret agent Ajay to catch the terrorists involved in the attempt on her life. They want the hard disk with sensitive information about the agents, which could be a threat to national security if it fell into the wrong hands. Bakshi suspects Anubhav, but changes his mind when Anubhav saves Haseena from goons. Haseena trusts Anubhav, and reveals her identity to him. Karishma learns about the hard disk, and Anubhav tells her to guard it carefully. Haseena soon discovers that Anubhav is behind everything; she steals the hard disk from Karishma and confronts Anubhav, publicly calling him a traitor. She shoots Anubhav, who shoots her back; Haseena loses her memory and starts considering herself urmila. Karishma destroys the hard disk and kills Anubhav, but Haseena has forgotten everything. She regains her memory during a fight, and rejoins her MPT team.

Amar Vidrohi and his team join the MPT, leading to rivalry between the two teams. Cheeta and Santosh declare their love, and Haseena goes underground to clear her name. Amar realizes that the MPT belongs to Haseena’s team, and leaves. Misri Pandey returns as the new SHO, but she and her politician uncle framed Haseena. They are arrested, and Haseena returns.

Karishma’s twin sister, Kaushalya (aka Kareena), who ran away with the money their father had saved for Karishma’s admission to the police force in order to become an actress, returns to Lucknow. She needs Karishma to train her in police tactics for her upcoming film, in which she plays a female cop. Kareena befriends the MPT team, and Haseena asks them to swap their roles to help them understand the challenges faced in each other’s professions. Karishma forgives Kareena and reconciles with her after learning about her sacrifices for their father. The MPT team later learns that Kareena is unwittingly being used as a suicide bomber by a terrorist group and saves her. Kareena bids farewell to the MPT team and leaves for Chennai to pursue her career.

Chingari Gang tries to replace the police, torturing and traumatising guilty men. Haseena and her team unsuccessfully try to stop them. Cheetah makes a mistake which could get him suspended, but Santosh takes the blame for him and is suspended instead. Karishma secretly infiltrates the gang to stop them. Cheetah and Binni chat online and fall in love. They decide to meet, but Cheetah learns that Binni is a member of the gang. Haseena learns about this and tells Cheetah to continue dating Binni to gain her trust and obtain evidence against the gang. Haseena sees Karishma wearing a Chingari Gang saree, and tells her to continue the act. Shivani, the gang leader, learns about Binni and Cheetah and expels her. Binni later learns that Karishma is betraying the gang, calls Shivani, and tells her everything. Shivani tries to kill Karishma, who is rescued by Haseena and her team. Shivani accidentally kills Saira Begum while trying to kill Haseena; she decides to take responsibility for the Chingari Gang’s crimes and surrenders to the MPT.

Mira returns with Mira G, an upgraded version of herself who can predict crimes. After being shot on her wristwatch, she is sent back to the C.A.R.D. Research Institute.

ACP Naina Mathur comes to Lucknow in search of Cherry, a criminal. She moves back to her hometown after Haseena and Karishma catch Cherry when she tries to kill Naina.

Shaziya Siddiqui, an aspiring police officer, arrives at the MPT. Claiming to be Haseena’s cousin, she wants to take her police exams with Haseena’s help. Shaziya actually escaped from the village of Devariya, which is harshly ruled by two brothers. They have outlawed women pursuing their ambitions and have kidnapped Nagma, Shaziya’s mother, to force her to return. The MPT team rescues Shaziya and Nagma with the help of Santu, Mira G, Misri and Shivani, who is now a lawyer at the Allahabad High Court. Haseena and Karishma expose the failure of Devariya's MLA to maintain law and order, and he vows to take revenge on them. Haseena is promoted to DSP and the team celebrate, but MPT station is bombed, with the media assuming that the team is dead. However, Haseena narrates her journey with the MPT team several months later, indicating that she survived the blast.
