Her colleagues call her KM, and she pursues an agency mole named Ravi Mohan (Ali Fazal) to track down a mystery puppeteer ordered by her boss Jeevi (Ashish Vidyarthi). She also watches over Charu (Wamiqa Gabbi), Ravi’s wife. Was KM successful in her mission? Does Charu get to know the truth about Ravi? Answers to these questions form the rest of the story.

Overall, Khufiya is not such a bad movie, but with such a talented cast and a director like Vishal Bharadwaj, this movie could have been much better for its potential. It can be watched at leisure without many expectations of its interesting plot and some well-conceived scenes.
