The film opens with a group of robbers stealing a valuable idol from a temple. However, one of them gets caught by the police and in order to escape, he throws the idol into a passing car. The car belongs to a rich businessman played by Arjun Sarja. The thief then dies in an accident, leaving behind a letter that reveals the location of the idol.

As Arjun and his wife, played by Sonali Bendre, embark on a road trip, the thief’s accomplices follow them in an attempt to retrieve the stolen idol. The couple eventually get lost and stop at a mansion owned by Suchindra Bali. They are welcomed by Bali, but soon realize that he has ulterior motives.
