Jindal goes into more detail about his past. His wife, Pooja, was a very noble woman who worked as a social worker. She led a crusade against drugs, but that ultimately led to her downfall. Some of the hoodlums that she rallied against struck back and killed her. Jindal tears up here and has to take a moment to compose himself.

When he goes back to his tale, he says that the men that are responsible for Pooja's murder are still alive! The drug trade is still going strong, and no one has the guts to raise their voices against those who perpetrate this crime. Jindal then says that he feels Vishal might be the one to have the strength to take the fight back against those who are pushing these drugs and ruining the country.

Vishal doesn't know what to make of all this, but he does know that he's not really interested in becoming a hit-man. Jindal stresses that this proposition would not be out of personal spite to get revenge for Pooja's death. This would be for the greater good of the nation.

Vishal says that he can't go around killing people anymore. He was driven to what he did earlier, but he's now a reformed man and can't just start killing people, no matter how noble the cause may be. Jindal gets a little heated here, and says that yes, the boys that wronged Vishal have been punished, but they were acting in a drugged state of mind. At what point do the men that supplied the drugs get punished? As long as they are still around, these tragedies will continue to play out all over the city.

Vishal says that he understands what Jindal is talking about, and acknowledges that Jindal did him a favor by helping get him released. However, he is not able to do what Jindal is suggesting, and says that Jindal should have thought of this before getting him sprung. Vishal takes off in a huff, as Jindal bristles in frustration.

Vishal heads to his old house, which is still looking pretty good despite being unoccupied for however long he was in jail. He takes a walk around the old rooms, seeing reminders of his former life and having flashbacks of his wife and sister-in-law. We also get some review on the trial, the deaths of Rita and Priya, as well as his conversation with Jindal. Finally after a lengthy internal debate, Vishal sits upright in bed with a very determined look on his face.

We cut to Jindal's office. Vishal has elected to participate after all, and is being briefed by Jindal. We learn with him that there are two main crime lords in the city: Tyson and Jibran. They used to work together, but the relationship has turned sour and they are now in competition. Jindal suggests that Vishal take advantage of this friction between the two and use it to bring them both down. He orders an assistant to provide a file of photographs and names of all of the officers and principle members of both gangs to Vishal, and says that he's not going to tell Vishal what to do to take them down. He'll leave that up to Vishal, but he trusts that he'll get the job done.

Jindal offers one final bit of advice - the last person that is to be killed is the commissioner of the police force. Jindal says that he has full knowledge of what's going on in the city, but is feigning ignorance. He has even given refuge to criminals and illegal trade is flourishing under his command. Speaking of the commissioner, let's see what he's up to.

In the commissioner's office (oops, he's got a name - Kulkarni) we find Amar and Sahu arguing with their commanding officer. Kulkarni says that it's not the police force's fault if the drug problems are so bad. The kids are seeking out the drugs and helping themselves. He compares them to goats going to the butcher voluntarily. Amar tells him that all of these drugged up kids are going to lead the country straight into the toilet unless they do something about it.

Kulkarni still doesn't sound interested. Amar says that he's got a plan that will work - he's going to go undercover and infiltrate the drug trade, bringing it down from the inside. Kulkarni dismisses them with a wave of his hand and a "whatever" look.

So... about this criminal element. Let's have a look at what they're up to.
