This task is assigned to aspiring film director Myra Devekar (Kriti Sanon), who is tasked by a producer to devise a compelling and violent crime scene for a film. Her desire for realism and her desire to please the producer led her to do extensive research on a real-life gangster to write a realistic script. Bachchhan Paandey (Akshay Kumar) of Baagwa (Akshay Kumar), a ruthless criminal surrounded by quirky but scary henchmen, is the result of her extensive investigation.
Vishu (Arshad Warsi) is in Baagwa, where Myra tells him about her film concept about Bachchhan Paandey. Vishu is furious and wants her to go, but he is eventually persuaded to help her with the film. Vishu and Myra embark on a campaign against Bachchhan Paandey’s villains in an attempt to gain his trust and gain access to his lair. They learn about Paandey’s dead ex-girlfriend Sophie (Jacqueline Fernandez) through Virgin, one of the thugs in the group. To overhear Virgin’s chats with Paandey, Vishnu and Myra install a microphone on him.
Virgin later betrays Paandey, but he kills her when he discovers her betrayal. Using a microphone, Vishu and Myra can hear Paandey’s gang murder of Myra. Initially, Paandey plans to kill Vishnu and Myra, but when he discovers that Myra is in charge of a film production company, he agrees to spare them. However, when Paandey kidnaps Myra’s producer, she must learn more about Paandey’s past in order to make the script.
Paandey was employed by a politician in a flashback. After a disagreement, the politician kills Paandey’s ex-girlfriend Sophie. Paandey kills the politician in the hospital as a form of retaliation for his actions.
Bhavesh Bhoplo, an acting coach, teaches Bachchhan Paandey and his accomplices to act. Paandey and his henchmen are utterly humiliated by Bhavesh’s brutality and threats. However, they are discouraged from injuring Bhavesh by Myra as it would be inconvenient for the film.
Finally, the film is finished and ready to be shown by the public. A group of villains led by Bachchhan Paandey promote a movie called ‘BP’, assuming it’s the grim gangster movie it was advertised for. Much to their dismay, the film turns out to be a farce in which they are unfairly mocked. Both her director and the media praised Myra’s film, which had previously received much criticism from her. Her murder is planned by Bachchhan Paandey and his accomplices to extinguish Bachchhan Paandey’s phobia among the public. Bachchhan Paandey then changes his mind about the plan after hearing her mother’s voice calling to him, and his followers are moved by what they hear. Later, Bachchhan Paandey becomes famous and Kaandi decides to stop watching pornographic movies. Best acting teacher Bhavesh Bhoplo and best comedy actor Bachchhan Paandey are named, with Myra as best director.

“Drinked in non-stop fun…” Taran aadarsh commented at the 3.5 star review. Akshay Kumar is an excellent action hero and he plays a big part in this movie. Designed for people who like a good dose of violence… There are plenty of clap and whistle moments.
According to Ronak Kotecha of The Times of India, the film had a “chaotic mix of weird and clichéd characters”.
