Kaalia a name that spreads fear into the hearts of people, a ruthless gangster without a heart, but everything has a beginning and Kaalia’s is so far from the man he has turned into. The story starts with naïve but good-hearted man Kallu (Amitabh Bachchan), who is caught right handed trying to steal money from the safe of the rich Shahani Seth (Amjad Khan), who turned Kallu down when he requested his help in order to pay for his brother’s medication. In consequences Kallu is sent to prison where he will share the living quarters with the most hardened criminal. Very soon Kallu himself is learning the tricks and ways of the street, transforming himself into a ruthless gangster, known as Kaalia. All hell breaks loose when Kaalia, after serving his time, is let free on the street so can start his reign of terror, vowing revenge on the man he holds responsible for his predicament, and swears on destroying Shahani Seth’s business at all cost, even if he has to pay with what is left from his life.
