The story is a bit convoluted, starting with Naxalite Laxmi (Konkona Sen Sharma), who is in police custody and gets raped by a senior police officer despite the protests of policeman Paaji (Kumud Mishra), but then a gang of Naxalites comes to the police They attack the station and rescue Lakshmi. Now the story has moved forward 13 years and Gopal (Arjun Kapoor) and Paaji (Kumud Mishra) have become goons in uniform. To say this, he is in the police department, but he works for drug smugglers and notorious people. Well-known gangster Bhau (Naseeruddin Shah) assigns the duo to eliminate his rival Surti (Jai Upadhyay). After completing their work, both of them go out celebrating after looting drugs from the hideout, but on the way they are caught by the senior officers of their own department. Now the process of suspending both of them starts, only then they come to know that Pammi (Tabu), the police officer who saved their lives, can get them done. They both go to Pammi. Pammi demands two crores to stop his suspension. To make such a huge amount, these people make a plan to rob an ATM van full of cash. But then Bhau Beti (Radhika Madan) also plans to rob the ATM van before planning to elope with her lover. In the story, the process of scratching and scratching each other is going on that Lakshmi’s Naxalite group also threatens to come. Now it remains to be seen who gets the cash in this cat-dog game.
Dogs is a film divided into an epilogue, 3 chapters and a prologue. Prologue Lakshmi Bomb, first chapter ‘Sabka Malik Ek’, second chapter ‘Aata Kya Canada’, third ‘Moong Ki Dal’ and finally epilogue. It is a very dark thriller and Aasmaan sets the tone in the very first chapter. Every character in the film is gray or rather black. Even the hero Arjun Kapoor is painted in the color of villainy. To maintain this dark tone, Aasmaan uses the characters and backdrops well, but the story has many tracks and sub-tracks, which confuse the story till the middle. If you get distracted even for a minute, you will lose your grip on the story. But after the interval, the tangled threads start connecting with each other and you as a viewer are shocked to find yourself in the midst of greedy, selfish and treacherous characters. The songs and music do justice to the setting of the film. Faiz Ahmed’s songs or Gulzar’s add different colors to the film. Background score is strong. Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey’s ‘Dhaan Tennan’ music creates current here and there, while his dialogues are also cheeky. The way the issue of demonetisation is presented in the climax is no less funny in itself.

Cast of ‘Dog’
There are many veteran actors in the film and every actor has proved to be excellent, but actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Anurag Kashyap have not got much screen space. Although Naseer makes fun of his expressions in a small role. Tabu excels with the many quirks of the gray character, while Konkona Sen Sharma delivers a power packed performance. Arjun Kapoor brings life to the character of greedy, hypocritical and treacherous. Radhika Madan is memorable in her role. Kumud Mishra’s performance is fun. The supporting cast is strong.
