Guru even quits his job and moves from Goa to Mumbai to make a new beginning with Aisha. Just when things seem perfect, she falls prey to an attack. Devastated, Guru starts hunting the miscreant and is shocked to learn of his seemingly innocuous and simple identity. Something is amiss and Guru is unable to place a finger on the precise problem.

Why should you watch: This visceral, hard-boiled edge-of-the-seat drama with romance and chart-busting music, comes from director Mohit Suri, renowned for his inimitable cult films, Woh Lamhe, Zeher, Awarapan, Raaz 2, and the recent Aashiqui 2. Balaji teams up with Suri on his first directorial feature outside the Mukesh Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt banner. It also marks the first-time Telefilms pairing of Sidharth and Shraddha. Also Ritesh is seen in a never-before seen avatar.
