An incident on the streets of Gurgaon in the night leaves Meera traumatized. Arjun has been feeling guilty for letting her drive alone as he wanted to stay back at the party. He wants her to forget the episode and plans a birthday treat for her; a desert holiday.
All seems going according to plan. When they reach the toll booth on the outskirts of Delhi, there is a huge commotion. He learns that the attendant has been killed by four youths when he asked them to pay. This, more or less, explains the scene on the outskirts of the capital and also gives us an inkling of what is in store.
On the Highway, they stop for a meal when they witness a young girl and a boy being mercilessly beaten by six people. When he tries to intervene (the only one from among the crowd of onlookers) he is punched in the face by one who tells him to stay away as that is his sister. He tries again and is punched again.
Fuming at the insult, he begins his journey as Meera tries to pacify him. As he is driving along on NH 10, he chances upon the Scorpio that abducted the two. He follows them, parks his car in the jungle, takes out his gun and goes in search of them. Meera is paranoid and rightly so. She asks him to let go of his ego. He assures her by saying that he will just frighten ”these villagers”.
But these are no ordinary villagers, these are butchers. A fact he realizes too late after they are both trapped. From here on, the movie breaks into a frantic pace as Meera and Arjun take cover in the jungle. Meera’s trauma in the dead of night and her race to get help is what the film is all about. When it culminates, you are as exhausted as Meera.
