When a middle-class man’s family is threatened, he must fight against all odds to protect them while concealing the dark truth that can destroy their lives.



Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgan) is a self-made man with a heart of gold. Orphaned at a young age, he grew up in Goa, doing odd jobs, until he could set up his own video library. He is a simple man, who hasn’t completed school and his life revolves around his wife, Nandita (Shriya Saran) and daughters Anju (Ishita Dutta) and Anu (Mrinal Jadhav). He believes that true knowledge can also be attained outside of school books and encourages his children to participate in camps. When Anju goes to a Nature Camp, she is stalked by a young boy, Sam (Rishabh Chaddha), who keeps clicking her pictures. However, he does the same with a few other girls and finally someone complains against him. Anju comes back home and doesn’t pay much heed to the incident. One day, on her way back home from the market, she is stopped by Sam who shows a video clip of her, taking a bath, taken at the Nature Camp. He agrees to delete the video only if Anju agrees to give in to his demands. Helpless and confused, Anju finally agrees to meet him at her outhouse the very night. Vijay, who often spends the night at his office watching movies, comes home the next day and finds his family in tears. Meanwhile, it turns out that Sam is missing and his mother, Meera Deshmukh (Tabu), is none other than the IG of Goa Police. She along with her husband, Mahesh (Rajat Kapoor) embark on a journey to find out the truth about Sam. When fingers are pointed at Vijay’s family, the family is called for interrogation. What happened on the night of Sam’s disappearance and to what extent can a common man go to protect his family?
