Amidst the chaos of crime and fear emerges a hero, Naveen Sikhera or Navniet Sekera. He is promoted from his rank and is sent to Muzzafarnagar. However, the promotion is more of a punishment.
The city is ruled by two very dangerous and violent gangsters. The eastern side of the city is ruled by the Shaukeen Gang. The western side is ruled by the Dedha brothers. The two gangsters have already divided the turf and the land to carry on with their businesses.
The terror and the horrors of their activities are unknown to the masses. All they know is that the gangsters are extremely harmful and dangerous. The local police officers do not question the activities of the gangsters. While no one dared to stand up against the malevolent practices, Naveen Sikhera stood up and fought against the gangs to clean up Muzzafarnagar.
Naveen Sikhera or Navniet Sekera eventually starts purifying the city by encountering and killing the gangsters. He receives opposition from people within the police force itself. He destroys the businesses and the gangs of Shuakeen and the Dedha brothers.
Mohit Raina plays the role of the brave cop and embodies the character of Navniet Sekera as Naveen Sikhera in the web series. His acting skills are very much admired by the audience.
Abhimanyu Singh as Shaukeen creates an environment full of tension and terror. He portrays the perfect antagonist of the film and makes the audience fear through his acting.
Siddhant Kapoor portrays the role of Chintu Dedha the villain of the West Zone, he brilliantly acts out and creates a horrific vibe.
Pradeep Nagar as Pintu Dedha is the other villain of the West zone and runs the business with his brother.

Bhaukaal rules the hearts of the people with its story and exceptionally crafted direction. Mohit Raina is simply a treat to the eyes, he plays the role of Navniet Sekera. He is idealistic and a very righteous man. He beautifully and accurately presents the nuances of the character. His effortless way of acting a dialogue delivery makes the series even better.
He portrays each emotion with a great amount of clarity and ease. He can show multiple emotions and transitions along with positive growth in his character.
The director; Jatin Wagle did a great job with the portrayal of the action sequences. The story however becomes predictable after a while but manages to still be engaging and gripping. The real incidents are used for a lot of scenes in the film. It starts becoming interesting when Navniet Sekera’s character meets Shaukeen face to face. This is the scene where Bhaukaal in its literal meaning blends with the theme of the show.
Abhimanyu Singh aptly portrays the role of Shaukeen. However in the end judging him in terms of acting, Abhimanyu Singh is given less amount of screen time for an actor of his caliber. The team shares good chemistry and they fulfill the motive and theme of Bhaukaal.

The encounters and the deadly and undeniably violent scenes make it more tantalizing and gross for the audience at the same time.
