The trailer showed Sadiya Siddiqui informing Sanjay Mishra that their cow named Rukhsaar has been stolen. The two wander all over the town asking people about their missing cow. However, they have another problem at their hands as they fear that the news about their cow has spread like fire and there will be serious repercussions if they are not able to find it.
Sanjay Mishra goes to the police to file a missing report for his cow. However, the cop played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui alleges that he might have killed his cow. Meanwhile, Tigmanshu Dhulia warns Sanjay that the matter has gotten political now, and no one will listen to his defence if he doesn't have the cow. His wife also dreams of his death. Sanjay Mishra, scared for his life, sets out on a mission to steal another cow to replace Rukshaar. His friend, played by Mukesh Bhatt, supports him every step of the way and even helps him pretend to be a Hindu.
The trailer and the film's cast have been receiving a lot of praises from the viewers. One said about Sanjay Mishra, "He can do any type of role with such perfection. Another gem in indian cinema." Another said about seeing him in a film with Nawazuddin and Tigmanshu, "Three legends in one film. Marvelous." One commented about the plot, "Another entertainer with deep messages for the contemporary society," while another praised makers for choosing a 'brilliant and courageous topic.'
