Tanhaji’s father, Kaloji Malusare, gives him swordsmanship lessons in 1647 before dying in Umrat during a Mughal raid. In 1664, Tanhaji (Ajay Devgn) and his younger brother Suryaji (Sharad Kelkar) lead the Maratha Army under the command of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (Salman Khan) against an invading Mughal cavalry.
To halt Shivaji’s rapid imperial expansion in Deccan, Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb (Luke Kenny) sent one of his generals, the king of Amber Jai Singh, to capture him in 1665. Jai Singh seized Shivaji and the 23 forts under Shivaji’s control (battle of Purandar).
After being insulted by Mughal general Beshak Khan, Shivaji’s mother Jijabai (Padmavati Rao) vows to go barefoot until the Marathas retake the crucial bastion Kondhana (now known as Sinhagad fort). As with everyone else, Tanhaji is aware of the treaty. Five years later, a spy for Shivaji Raje tells him that Aurangzeb intends to exploit the Kondhana fort as a staging area for his southern imperial advance by assigning it to his Rajput general Udaybhan Rathod (Saif Ali Khan).
Raje is planning to regain Kondhana, and he sees himself as the campaign’s leader because Tanhaji, though a capable general, is unavailable because of his son Rayba’s forthcoming wedding. Tanhaji, meanwhile, enjoys a family Holi festival.
Shivaji orders his generals to keep Tanhaji in the dark about the Marathas’ impending conflict with the Mughals. Tanhaji shows up in Rajgad to personally invite Shivaji to his sister Rayba’s wedding. Maratha general Chandraji Pisal, plotting to depose Shivaji Raje, confides in his nephew Tanhaji on the advice of Chultya.
