Plot[edit]

18 years ago, the Darr family, consisting of Pushkaran (Amitabh Bhattacharjee) and his son, Kunal (Kunal Khemu), were forced to leave Kashmir by terrorists, who had forced thousands of other Kashmiri Pandits to be mere refugees in their very own country. Pushkaran and Kunal re-locate to Bombay, where they live in a small room. This is where Kunal grows up, and gets a job at a gym. Then one day, the police knock on his door, informing him that his father had lost his hold from a crowded local train, fallen, and instantly killed. A devastated Kunal arranges his father's funeral, and before he could reconcile to living alone, his relatives contact him from Jammu, informing him that his father had promised to look after a young woman named Renuka (Smiley Suri). Kunal agrees to fulfill his father's promise.

When Renuka arrives, she finds out about the untimely death, and wants to return, but ticket reservation force her to stay with Kunal for a week. It is this week that changes their lives, for they fall in love and get married. During their first intimate night together, porn-website creator Simi Roy (Amrita Singh) and her partner Johny (Ashutosh Rana) record them and turn them into porn-stars. Renuka can't take the embarrassment and commits suicide. Kunal is then arrested by police for illegal porn online. Kunal proves himself innocent, and decides to track down Simi Roy and her team and get revenge. He comes across Ali (Emraan Hashmi) a modern-day punk, who runs an adults only shop. In his shop, Kunal sees a magazine featuring a pornstar Kunal had seen on the same website where his and Renuka's video was. He uses Ali's help to track down the girl, and realizes that the matter is much more complicated, confusing and unbelievable than he thought.
