The series begins with a Bengali hotelier, who approaches the local MLA, Raja Bahinipati, with a proposal to set up a hotel in the fisherman’s village by displacing the locals. But their plan comes to a stand-off when they find out that the place comes under the so-called ‘ jurisdiction’ of the local Sahi crime lord aka Robinhood of Puri, Babu Jena. This ignites an age-old rivalry and soon, a bloody feud breaks out between local gangs of Babu Jena, Nilu, and Loka Nana.

The sacred temple town of Puri inevitably turns into a bloody battlefield.

Amid the local tussles, a regular Puri guy, Shiva, accidentally gets involved in the affairs of the underworld and rises to prominence as the new ‘Nana’. But he soon realises that in order to be the ‘Nana’ (don), you have to take a ‘Dana’ (bullet).
