The movie tells a historical fiction story set in 1795, when the Indian subcontinent was known as Hindustan or Hindostan, where Indian bandits known as Thugs (from the Hindustani word "thug") posed a serious challenge to the expanding British East India Company which had seized control of large parts of India. The story follows a band of Thugs led by Khudabaksh Azaad (Amitabh Bachchan), who poses a grave threat to the British East India Company as he aspires to free the country from the British. Alarmed, John Clive (Lloyd Owen), a British commander, sends Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan), a small-time Thug from Awadh, to infiltrate and counter the threat.
