SynopsisEdit

The movie begins with a dead body of a TV journalist, Nadia Merchant, being found in a remote area, somewhere in Germany. Soon after, the most famous Indian singer HR (Himesh Reshammiya) is arrested after a concert for murdering the journalist. HR is put behind bars and the incidents begin to unravel as the movie goes into a flashback. While on a concert in Germany, performing with his best friend Shravan (Shravan), HR meets the event organizer Khurana (Darshan Jariwala) and his partner Ruby James (Mallika Sherawat). He also meets the event planner Riya (Hansika Motwani), and it is love at first sight. After initial reservations, Ria's father Bakshi (Sachin Khedekar) approves of the match.

Things take a turn when HR is arrested. He asks Ruby, a lawyer, to bail him out. But hell hath no fury like a woman scorned: Ruby is in love with HR, but the rock star loves Riya. He escapes from his prison cell after taking the murdered TV journalist's father Feroz (Raj Babbar) captive. He has to find the actual murderer in one day or else his sweetheart will be married to someone else. To stop this from happening, he needs Riya's help. He approaches her; she is currently ignoring him.

HR, Shravan, and Bani (Gurbani Judge) approach Ruby (on HR's hunch that Ruby is innocent of the murders) for help. They browse through all the invoices and other documents in Khurana's office to find that acute losses on a previously finalized world tour deal gave Khurana the motive to frame HR. HR then proceeds to confront Khurana and, after a car chase, he catches up dancing gaily while being recorded.
