Starting with the 2001 attack on Indian Parliament, the show goes back and forth in time covering several other events including 26/11, Kashmir terror attacks amongst others; and the chase for the single mastermind behind these attacks – making it the longest manhunt in Indian Intelligence for India's deadliest enemy.

Neeraj Pandey talking about the show said, "Special Ops is a story I thought of many years ago – it's a big idea that required a lot of patience and research to pursue and develop. With newer and exciting formats of storytelling gaining prominence, we were able to build a fabulous team to create this larger than life story that strings together many real events from the past two decades."

Neeraj Pandey further added, "For the first time in the history of Indian entertainment, the 2001 Indian Parliament Attack has been recreated on celluloid. That's just one of the many big moments from the show."

Kay Kay Menon said, "Special Ops offers a very unique perspective to the role of Indian intelligence. Undercover agents are the true unsung heroes of our time. On the face of it they appear just like you and me – leading a normal life and perfectly blending in the crowd – but they are constantly on duty, protecting and serving the nation from any threats. Special Ops tries to bring forth the lives of these agents that try to capture the mastermind behind several unfortunate attacks."
