The film is a romantic thriller that dances between love, deception, and revenge, and is set against a backdrop of betrayal and intrigue. Fida tells the story of Jai Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor), a young man who falls deeply in love with a beautiful woman, Neha Mehra (Kareena Kapoor). Despite her initial reluctance, Jai eventually wins her over and the two embark on a passionate and intense relationship. However, their happiness is short-lived when Neha reveals that her father has been kidnapped by a dangerous gangster, Vikram Singh (Fardeen Khan). In order to secure her father's release, Neha must convince Jai to carry out a robbery on Vikram's behalf. Unbeknownst to Jai, the robbery is just the beginning of a treacherous game set up by Vikram. As Jai is drawn deeper into Vikram's world, he discovers that the gangster has a dark ulterior motive for his involvement in the robbery. Jai is compelled to complete the final task of Vikram's agenda, but at what cost? Will Jai be able to save himself and the woman he loves, or will they become pawns in Vikram's sinister masterplan?
