Vidya Malvade plays his ex-wife Mallika. Minissha Lamba plays their daughter Sonia, who lives with her mother and grand-mother in India since her parents' divorce when she was 10. A week before her 18th birthday party, Sonia is kidnapped. In a role far different from his debut in "Jaane Tu Ya Janne Na," heartthrob Imran Khan plays Kabir, the young abductor. Kabir agrees only speak to Vikrant with whom he has an old score to settle. Just as Kabir wants, Vikrant arrives in India to save his daughter. Then Vikrant has no choice but to carry out a series of complex tasks because after each is completed, he receives a clue to help trace his daughter's whereabouts. What past mistake is Vikrant paying for and to what extent will he go to save his daughter? The makers promise riveting viewing to find the answers and chartbusting music from Pritam.

These encounters leave such a meaningful impression on Sammy and Ali that the heroism within them awakens and leads to significant changes taking place in their lives.
