Department is a 2012 Indian Hindi-language action film directed by Ram Gopal Varma. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Rana Daggubati in lead roles. Released on 18 May 2012, the film received mixed-to-negative reviews from critics, and did not succeed at the box office.


Inspector Mahadev Bhosale (Sanjay Dutt) finds himself tasked by his seniors to form a hit squad called the "Department" to take on the Mumbai underworld. He recruits Shiv Narayan (Rana Daggubati), an honest and brave police officer, who was suspended for an encounter killing. Mahadev and Shiv, along with others in the "Department", set their sights on the underworld don Sawatya (Vijay Raaz) and his gang. Sawatya, in spite of many exhortations by his number two, D.K. (Abhimanyu Singh), and D.K.'s feisty girlfriend, Naseer (Madhu Shalini), does not hit back at the police.
