Storyline

A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night with her fiancé. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewelry of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. Her life will never be the same again. The gang is in a panic; the girl is a big industrialist's daughter, his links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. But for the leader of this group sending her back is not an option. As the days pass by, the scenery changes, the girl feels that she has changed as well. Gradually, a strange bond begins to develop between the victim and the oppressor. It is in this captivity that she, for the first time, feels free. Written by Vikram Nayak

randeep hooda acted really well. aliya was good. the movie reminds me of Clint Eastwood movie the perfect world.
23 February 2014 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

The movie is thought provoking and it deals with a social message. Lovely cinematography with a power to heal, to nurture and free you soul. It made me want to almost pack my bags and take off into the unknown, the joy of lying down beneath the stars, beside a river or even just driving through snow-capped mountains is enticing to say the least. Tie this with an intense relationship involving two individuals carrying wounds so deep that unconsciously draw them into each other's spheres of existence, changing their lives forever. A journey that takes them to the core of their being leaving an impact that is life –altering, forever. As is the case with such connections, happy ending are often rare and the movie kept it real. Well directed and well acted movie. 1000 times better than Gunday.
