Vidyut Jammwal stars in The Power as Devi, son of the Mumbai crime boss Kalidas Thakur who draws a Lakshman Rekha in his criminal activities: he will not touch the drug trade. Devi is in love with Pari. Her father Anwar is Kalidas' loyal lieutenant and a de facto member of the Thakur family. Shaila is Devi's scheming sister-in-law who resents the Thakurs' proximity to Pari and Anwar. Her husband Ram is uncomfortable with her ways. Meanwhile, her ambitious brother Ranjit, who is married to Ram and Devi's sister, simmers with bitterness because he feels slighted by the entire clan.At first it appears that The Power may have something novel to offer with its promising prologue, the inter-community equations involved and a woman's transformation from devoted daughter and girlfriend to revenge-seeking, gun-wielding gangster. But each time it hints at a path less trodden, it turns away from its own promise. Devi is a little boy, traumatized when he is caught in gunfire, and is sent away from home to recover. This will not be the first time that a gangster film shows a returning son getting drawn into his family's bloody feuds, but in There is no visible reluctance nor a gradual progression towards what Devi finally becomes.
