From the creator-producer of Savdhaan India, the producer of Crime Patrol and the bestselling author of The Deadly Dozen: India's Most Notorious Serial Killers, comes the true story of one of India's biggest and most sensational bank heists.
31 December 2007. New Year's Eve. A sleepy town in Kerala called Chelembra finds itself in the national headlines as the setting of India's biggest bank heist, to the tune of a whopping Rs 8 crore, including 80 kg of gold.

Constructed from extensive first-person interviews with the police team that solved the crime and the confession details of the criminals, this is the true story of how India's biggest bank heist was executed and the cat-and-mouse game that ensued.
