As plant workers fail to contain the situation even with their best efforts, the gas finally leaks and spreads into the air after breaking off the ceiling. In a scene, someone is seen asking the authorities of the company, “What does this gas do?”

“It's not lethal, sir. That's the company line,” replies the person in charge. The gas leak starts killing the people of Bhopal and causing chaos. As Babil rushes to help those at the station, Kay Kay Menon and Divyenndu join and go against all odds to save the citizens on the fateful night of December 2, 1984.
