Ambitious Rizwan Ahmed (Rohan Mehra) leaves his small town of Allahabad to try his hand in the fast-paced stock market center of Mumbai, fueled by his dreams of becoming a success like his idol, Shakun Kothari (Saif Ali Khan, Omkara, at his finest). The glamour of the Mumbai high life and the affection of fellow stock broker Priya Rai (Radhika Apte, Andhadhun) draws Rizwan further into the world of greed and power. Baazaar is a slickly-made film reminiscent of the works of Oliver Stone, but with the soundtrack and visuals to ground it as a Bollywood hit.
