Mufti is set in a place called Ronapura. It begins with a police operation being disrupted and the cops involved all being killed by a gangster. He is part of a dreaded gang led and operated by a mysterious don Ranagallu (Shivarajkumar). Ranagallu is the god of Ronapura and owns everyone including government officials. His wealth and properties are so large no law is capable of touching him. The police chief plans an undercover operation to get more information on Ranagallu and appoints Gana (Srimurali) to carry out the operation.

The undercover operation is planned over several years to make sure that no one suspects Gana. In the beginning Gana goes to Mangaluru and works in the port and becomes an important part of the gang. From there he is sent to Ronapura. At Ronapura, he is given a place to live by the gang and also is in touch with his police boss through an unknown cop working in the area. They exchange information without directly meeting each other by using a small shop in a busy market. One day, Ganaa meets Shanvi there when she by mistake takes his bag because it looks exactly like her bag.

As Gana gets deeper into Ranagulla’s operations he realizes Ranagallu is not the demon everyone thinks he is….
