Aditya Shrivastav [Bobby Deol] is an ex-army officer who was in love with his senior officer's daughter, Payal [Lara Dutta]. He was a brave and promising soldier but was asked to leave the force for not obeying his senior's orders.
His disobedience and subsequent dismissal from army was looked upon so poorly that even Payal had to bid him farewell. He started a travel agency and looked after his younger college-going brother Anuj [Ritesh Deshmukh], coming to terms with his disturbing past.Anuj is a live wire and has a girlfriend Ramona (Tara Sharma).
On a hapless day, he is picked up by three rotten goon-cops, Yeshwant Thakur (Rahul Dev), Sunil Yadav (Ganesh Yadav), and Deepak Sawant (Vishwajeet Pradhan), completely unknown to him, and subjected to third degree torture in a cell, which results in a motiveless death.
Trying to hush up the case, the police forges him as a drug peddler and claim his death to be an encounter killing. Bobby cannot accept his brother to be involved in such stuff, and he starts doubting the police for some foul play. He decides to get to the bottom of the matter, and thus starts his search for the truth. Lara drops in as a lawyer, and so as to continue the old romance track, she joins him in his quest. Though the story moves at an indolent pace at most times, there're some riveting and entrancing moments in the film that connect with the viewer instantly and makes the film worth watching. E Niwas's directorial venture is low on script but definitely a high on performances. Bobby does a good job. He is turning into a fine actor slowly but surely. Lara Dutta is competent as always. Ritesh Deshmukh is fine in a short role. Tara Sharma is good. Rahul Dev is a really fine actor and leaves his mark. Music is okay. Overall it is a good masala movie.
