Kalidas Thakur (Mahesh Manjrekar) does all kinds of kaale dhande but drugs ka dhanda is against his usool. His usool changes after a while though. If he would’ve compromised with his usool earlier, many lives would’ve been saved in the film, but we as an audience would have missed out on many unintentional laughs.

What it’s about
Rana (Sachin Khedekar) has his eyes on Kalidas’ kaale dhande and the money and power that come with them. Devidas (Vidyut Jammwal) is a chef and Kalidas’ younger son. He is love with Pari (Shruti Haasan). They are about to get married but something horrible happens on that day itself. Devidas is embroiled in this messy game of power.
The film starts off well. You feel that it might be a good action drama. Initially, the characters are also interesting. Vidyut Jammwal tries his best but is let down by the material. There are some interesting twists.
The Power is about power and everything including logic is maaf to be powerful. Imagine this: Devidas has been hit by two or three bullets right in the gut and he falls into a pond. We feel that he is dead but no, not yet. He jumps out of the water and fights like nothing happened to him. There are many such scenes and dialogues which are so bad that they are good. In one scene, Devidas, after hitting someone really badly says, ‘Never f**k with a Thakur’. You can’t help but laugh out loud. Most actors overact.
The Barack Obama gif in which he is moving his hands to express ‘what is the need’ is how we feel about this film.
