In El Dorado, Ingalagi had described the harsh incidents of brutality that the slaves at the Indian gold mine Kolar Gold Fields were subjected to at the hands of the gold mafia head named Garuda (Ramachandra Raju) who had occupied the region. This led to the uprising of a professional assassin named Rocky who assassinated him and put an end to the misery of the slaves at the Kolar Gold Fields. After murdering Garuda, Rocky was tagged as the most dreaded criminal in India and a death warrant was issued against him by the Prime Minister of India, Ramika Sen.

Rocky Takes Charge Of The Kolar Gold Fields

After killing Garuda, Rocky took charge as the kingpin of the Kolar Gold Fields much to the jealousy of his rival as well as supporter Guru Pandian (Achyuth Kumar) who had expected to take over the gold mine.

Now Rocky along with his girlfriend Reena (Srinidhi Shetty) started ruling the Kolar Gold Fields. However, Rocky had spared Garuda’s trusted aide Vanaram (Ayyappa Sharma) and gave him the position of the security in-charge at the Kolar Gold Fields. Vanaram joined Rocky and began to train young security guards for protecting the K.G.F territory.

During his reign at the Kolar Gold Fields, Rocky discovered that there were several unexcavated gold mines in the region. So, he ordered his men to start excavating in order to uncover those mines. The news of Rocky’s reign at the Kolar Gold Fields spread all over India. An outsider like Rocky ruling the Kolar Gold Fields shocked CBI officer Kanneganti Raghavan (Rao Ramesh) who tried to figure out more answers regarding the matter.

Meanwhile, Rocky’s aide Guru Pandian was holding high political power in the central government and some central ministers were fed up by Rocky’s K.G.F reign as well as Guru Pandian’s tyrannous reign in the country. The ministers wanted Ramika Sen (Raveena Tandon) to be in power and planned to vote for a “No Confidence” motion against Guru Pandian.

The Lead Villain: Adheera’s Entry

All of a sudden, the news of Garuda’s uncle Adheera (Sanjay Dutt) being alive started doing the rounds. Adheera, who was presumed to be dead, emerged alive and claimed his ownership on the Kolar Gold Fields. He entered the gold mine and killed the guards at the mine’s outpost. His terror spread in the hearts all workers and residents at the Kolar Gold Fields.

Tense moments erupted in the Kolar Gold Fields and Rocky’s girlfriend Reena tried to flee from the area but was captured by John (John Korkken) who was an overseer of the gold mine. Rocky was able to save his girlfriend from John in time. However, all this was just a plan to bring Rocky out of his territory. Rocky realized that Adheera and his men had surrounded the gold mine and it was impossible for anyone to move out of the area. Seeing the lone Rocky, Adheera shot him. However, he did not kill him but spared his life in order to send a message of his arrival at the Kolar Gold Fields.

Rocky’s Pursuit For Power

The central ministers had passed a “No Confidence” motion against Guru Pandian and his government was on the verge of losing majority. Meanwhile, Rocky’s gold smuggler ex-boss Shetty (Dinesh Mangaluru) joined forces with a dreaded gold baron and don from Dubai Inayat Khalil (Balakrishna) against Rocky. The injured Rocky along with his gang visited Dubai to fix a gold deal with Khalil, but he refused him saying that he is already in a gold deal with Shetty. This angered Rocky and he killed all associates of Shetty who dealt with Khalil and captured Shetty’s areas. This forced Khalil to directly deal with Rocky. Khalil ordered truck loads of machine guns from him.

As Rocky’s trucks were on the way to deliver the machine guns to Khalil, Adheera and his henchmen attacked the trucks. They blasted one of the trucks. Rocky and his men armed themselves with the machine guns from their trucks and destroyed Adheera’s henchmen with a heavy firing. Adheera also got shot but Rocky spared him and warned him to stay away from the Kolar Gold Fields.

Rocky’s henchmen held the ministers at gunpoint who had passed the “No Confidence” motion against Guru Pandian. The “No Confidence” motion to throw away Guru Pandian failed and he regained power once again. With Guru Pandian at his support, Rocky resumed his activities. Following this, he went to Mumbai and killed Shetty and gained control over both Shetty’s territories as well as the Kolar Gold Fields. However, Guru Pandian warned Rocky about the upcoming danger if Ramika Sen gains power.

Ramika Sen Becomes The Prime Minister Of India

Ramika Sen won the Indian general elections and became the Prime Minister of India. After gaining power, she ordered the closure of state borders and bestowed the authority to various CBI officials for conducting raids at Rocky’s warehouses all over India. The CBD raid was being headed by Raghavan.

Anand Ingalagi (Ashok Sharma), then just a young man, was caught by Rocky’s henchmen in one of these raids. Rocky spared him and asked him to write down everything he witnessed. The CBI raided a warehouse of Rocky, but Rocky’s henchmen moved the gold to some other location but they left behind a 400 gram gold biscuit by mistake. The CBI took that gold biscuit to a police station. When Rocky came to know about this, he invaded the police station. He brought down the entire police station to bring back the gold biscuit. Ramika Sen and the CBI became aware of this incident. In order to terrorize Rocky and his gang, Sen ordered the cancellation of the Burma delegation with which she was supposed to go to Burma to negotiate with the rebels there. Instead she gave the freedom to the Indian military to kill all the Burma-based rebels, and the Indian military carried out her orders. This was an indirect warning from her to Rocky that if he didn’t set himself on the right track, he would meet the same fate at her hands like the Burma rebels!

As a punishment, Rocky appointed his careless and unaware father as a caretaker of his mother’s grave.

Rocky and Reena got married. After marriage, Rocky turned over a new leaf! He went to the Prime Minister’s Office and handed Ramika Sen the file which contained all information regarding his illegal funds used for money laundering. Sen’s party members requested her not to seize that file from Rocky because they all had a share in those funds. Sen directly warned Rocky that she possessed the ability to snatch away his K.G.F empire. At this, Rocky mocked her and made her aware that in order to do so, she must be way ahead of him. Sen realized that if she had to defeat Rocky, she would be required to work underhand outside her system and government.

Upon Rocky’s denial to surrender himself, Sen ordered to bomb the Kolar Gold Fields as well as Rocky’s ship. Bombs fell on Rocky’s ship and he drowned in the ocean along with all the gold.
