Strip shows, xxx clubs, S&M bars, legalized prostitution and drugs... it's one man's war against the world of pornography. Armed with only a picture of a famous Indian porn star? Annie (Deepal Shaw), Kunal gets ready to find and fight a faceless foe. But what Kunal does not know is that in this 'Kalyug' one man's tragedy is another man's entertainment. This business revolves on the simple rules of demand and supply. As long as there is a need for blue films, someone will fulfill that need.
