PlotEdit

Bhoomi Sachdeva, a designer, is all set to be married to Neeraj Mathur, her best friend, but has a problem of returning home late from work. Her father Arun Sachdeva is an alcoholic shoe-maker who sells shoes, but the two share a loving relationship. Vishal Munshi is infatuated with Bhoomi and not happy about her marriage. He stalks her, and she slaps him one day when he tries to forcefully assert his love. Vishal meets his cousin Dedha's gangster boss Dhauli, who convinces him to do something about it.

One day before the wedding, while travelling home with her aide Jeetu, Bhoomi gets kidnapped. She finds Vishal asphyxiating her to near death, and Vishal, Dedha, and Dhauli take turns raping her. Bhoomi eventually falls unconscious. On the day of the wedding, Neeraj is shocked to learn of the truth, and is forced against his will to cancel the marriage, following which, Arun and his childhood friend, Tripurari "Taj" visit a police station to register a complaint. The police officer goes with him to his house, where they find Bhoomi missing. Bhoomi is kidnapped again by Vishal, Dhauli and Dedha. This time, Dhauli throws her down a river.

Dhauli soon comes to know that Bhoomi survived. In the ensuing court case, Arun accuses the defense lawyer of being patriarchal and body-shaming Bhoomi. The case is dismissed after they let go of Dhauli. The incident brings father and daughter closer to each other. Bhoomi is further shamed in society when people write her phone number on the walls. Neeraj returns, overcome by remorse, but cannot pacify her, as she leaves him. The next day, Jeetu's family visits and shows Bhoomi a video from Jeetu's phone detailing the rape. Realizing Jeetu was complicit in the act, Bhoomi is shocked.

Arun and Bhoomi turn ruthless and abduct Jeetu, who is then tortured. Arun goes on a scaring spree by haunting Vishal. Dhauli takes a petrified Vishal to Arun, asking Vishal to apologize, but Arun picks a fight with Dhauli. On his 18th birthday, Jeetu is killed by Arun and his body is found in Bhagwan Talkies, where they had raped Bhoomi. The police officer who had registered Arun's complaint is surprised to see Jeetu's sister disclaiming responsibility and chiding herself for having been his sister. The officer returns Arun his keychain that he'd been holding at the police station, and says that one mustn't leave his belongings after the match is played, implying that the policeman knows Arun is the murderer. Dedha tries to assault Bhoomi again; Taj intervenes but crashes into an iron pole and dies from his injuries. Shattered by the loss of his friend, Arun decides to finish off Vishal, Dedha and Dhauli.

Vishal, scared off with Jeetu's murder, boards a bus but Arun and Bhoomi confront him and force him to castrate himself. Arun drives the bus to Dhauli's area. After a long scuffle, Dedha dies from his injuries. Arun and Bhoomi chase him Dhauli to a temple, where Arun kills him, and he falls into a pond. He breathes his last as Bhoomi and Arun look down at the pond, having succeeded in their mission.

ReceptionEdit

Sukanya Verma, writing for Rediff.com, termed it "one of the worst films of the year" and blamed it for "[taking] perverse pleasure in a woman's humiliation". She opined that Dutt's character's transformation lacked seriousness and found the film to be "ghastly".[7] India Today's critic Lakshana N Palat gave the film a 1/5 rating.[8] Meena Iyer writing for Times of India wrote "Watch Bhoomi for Dutt. He's from that era of larger-than-life heroes who get you to applaud even when he turns a killing machine. You may not approve of his bloodlust, but you can't fault his swagger."[9]
