Synopsis: A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night with her fiancé. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewelry of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. Her life will never be the same again. The gang is in a panic; the girl is a big industrialist's daughter, his links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. But for the leader of this group sending her back is not an option. As the days pass by, the scenery changes, the girl feels that she has changed as well. Gradually, a strange bond begins to develop between the victim and the oppressor. It is in this captivity that she, for the first time, feels free.

Now save your honor.

A man should know his place.

Why climb a mountain

if you don't have the guts?

What are you staring at?

What will you do? Eat me up?

You're scared witless.

Pair of eunuchs!


You shouldn't have said that.

I won't forget this.

No, I won't, Bhaati.

Or should I fix you right now?

I swear..

Put that away! - Hello.


- Don't stop me.

Stay away from the rich.

Fear them!

- Not a word more.

Why should we fear the rich?

Salute them.

Open doors for them. Why?

Because they can take your life

whenever they want.

They've got it all.

What's left?

We're used to licking

their soles.

Enjoy getting harassed now.

You mother..

Let's go.


You're talking

about Manik Tripathi.

He owns factories

around the world.

Ministers and politicians are

his mates. Must we take them on?

What will you do?

What now?

Call him up.

Hello, Mr. Tripathi.

You know what? Your daughter

is in our custody.

I am messaging you an address.

Come there with the ransom,



That's just what I'll say.

And when the girl gets shot

in the leg

Tripathi will come running

with the cash.

Or I'll sell her off to a

brothel. In some shady street.

Vanished. India is too big.

A bad omen is shadowing him.

He'll land us in trouble too.

You'll die

a dog's death, Bhaati.

A dog always dies

a dog's death.

What'll they do to me?

Hang me four times?

I've murdered three men already.

I'll die as I lived.

But this will happen for sure.

I will do it.


Wake up!

I am Gaurav.

Don't be scared.

They call me Goru.

I'll take care of you.


I'll talk to you later.

We have to go now.

It's too risky here.

Get up. Now!

I don't trust

any of you anyway.

So, do what you have to do.

Let's go.

Switch off your phones.

Their woman is in our hands.
