The officer guarding the girl's room calls an anonymous person informing him of the girl being alive. He tries to smother her but she is able to alert the nurse. Inspector Anton is called but the girl manages to escape from the hospital.

Sonika is a photography student who is kept isolated and, is tortured by Mandar. She reluctantly finds comfort in her college friend Akshay Bedi (Jay Bhanushali) who secretly loves her. They fall in love but Sonika is helpless since she can't tell Akshay about her situation with Mandar. Akshay gets to know the truth and comforts her. They decide to run away to be together. Sonika is happy and becomes hopeful of having a free life. Mandar discovers that she has eloped with her lover.

Mandar and his men reach Akshay's house and attack him. Sonika begs him to leave Akshay alone but they kill him by tying him to a rope and throwing him in a lake in a car. Mandar also buries Sonika alive in a coffin. After she is rescued she vows to exact vengeance upon Mandar. First kills the police officer who tried to kill her. Then she writes a journal describing her torture. She dives into the same lake and puts it in the car. She then kills one of the three men who was involved in killing Akshay. After that, she informs Inspector Anton about Akshay's dead body. However, Mandar makes it look like Sonika killed Akshay. Sonika then kills another one of Mandar's men involved in Akshay's death. Sonika teams up with Mandar's rival and to get to the third man who helped killed Akshay but Mandar himself kills him.
