Rajesh(Akshay Oberoi) is a youngster who is in love with a fellow student Poonam(Piaa Bajpai). Rajesh meets Shankar(Randeep Hooda) who runs an illegal blood bank. Shankar also has had a heartbreak through a Punjabi girl Rashi(Meenakshi Dixit) whom he still misses. Though initially, Rajesh is not aware of Shankar's illegal trades, he likes it the instant he comes to know about it and gets involved in earning quick money to impress Poonam. Slowly as the business kicks off, Rajesh starts showing off his money to Poonam. The cops who have got the hint of this business are also closing in on the illegal activity led by the Superintendent of police (Rajniesh Duggall). In the end, Shankar declares his crime to the police and gets arrested, saving Rajesh and Poonam's relation. Five years later, Shankar is finally released from the prison and he reunites with Rajesh and Poonam. The couple had a son who was named Shankar.
