Simran Bhargav (Lisa Ray) epitomizes the woman of today. A self assured person and an intelligent lawyer, Simran takes the case of a powerful publishing magnate, Shekhar Saxena (Aftab Shivdasani) who is facing the trial for brutally murdering his wife Priti Saxena.
Everyone is convinced of Shekhar?s crime. This includes the over inquisitive police officer (Ashutosh Rana) and the public prosecutor Nitin Mehta (Irfan Khan), but they have no shred of evidence to nail Shekhar. In these trying times Shekhar too shows remarkable equanimity and even hoodwinks Simran into believing that he is absolutely innocent.
Although a bold and confident woman on the outset, deep inside Simran is vulnerable and even carrying the demons of her past when she convicted an innocent man who later on committed suicide in the custody. It is partly this burden on her conscience that prompts her to believe hat Shekhar is innocent. She promises to fight his case on the condition that he would never lie to her. Knowing that only Simran can save him from the gallows Shekhar complies.
Simran has another admirer Amit (Apoorva Agnihotri), the wishy-washy chocolate boy who doesn't approve of the growing proximity between the two. Simran?s and Shekhar?s simmering feelings for each other grow into a violent passion and the two let go of their conscious resistance. The floodgates of their pent up emotions open and the lovers break their patience. Physical attraction before love is a reality and Vikram doesn?t shy of showing this openly and frankly in the film.
Anyway both fall madly in love with each other and by the time Shekhar?s innocence is proved the story takes an unexpected turn. As the mystery unfolds Simran alights on certain snippets of evidence, certain facts that brings to fore the hitherto unseen shades of Shekhar. Is he the killer of his wife? Did he trick her into loving him to escape the prosecution? The hair-raising climax will give you all these answers.
