Set against the backdrop of Glasgow’s icy air, Badla narrates the story of Naina Sethi (Taapsee Pannu), a dynamic young entrepreneur, who is under house arrest for a crime that according to her she hasn’t committed. Naina claims that she is being framed for it by someone hinting to Rani (Amrita Singh) who has been questioning Naina for her son’s whereabouts. To prove her innocence, she hires Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), an attorney with a track record of winning every case in 40 years of his career.
While he wants to win this case as well, he has only three hours to uncover the facts and prove Naina’s innocence.

With the story unfolding, various characters and truth comes into light which will keep the viewers guessing about the real killer and their motive.
