Shortly after getting promoted as Regional Manager of Max Finance, Parag Dixit gets arrested in Bandra for Firing at Police, and Possession of Narcotics. His associate, Keshav, is grievously injured, and is hospitalized in a coma-like condition. Parag's widowed mother, Alka, and Air Hostess girlfriend, Manasi Pandit, retain Advocate Harish Bhatiya to represent him at a preliminary bail hearing, but the Judge denies bail. Housed in an overcrowded barrack, with barely room to move, Parag meets with a variety of people - both convicted and awaiting trial - including Abdul Ghani, Kabir Malik, Galib Suratwala, Nawab, Bababhai, etc. Parag again appears in Court e after a charge-sheet is filed, but again, due to the seriousness of the offenses, fear of tampering with evidence and witnesses, he is denied bail.

Madhur Bandarkar directing & Neil Nitin Mukesh's acting Go for it!
8 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When i read those articles saying that Madhur Bandarkar had to cut some naked scenes from Jail i wasn't really eager to watch the movie but when i decide to put my judgement away and i actually when to watch it perhaps the smartest move i ever made! We all know that Mr. Bandarkar likes his movie edgy , scandalous and dark and this one is no exception his last year's Hit Fashion really boosted him up for Jail! I want to say something here if Neil Nitin Mukesh is nominated for Best Actor this year then i would not be surprised , he portrayed his role with such intensity and pride he is really talented and in this movie he just proved that he is worth to be nominated for B.A actor this year if yes then he has definitely chance to win it or in the critic section. Mughda Godse has an supporting actress for Neil , she was really good but her acting skill's still need to be sharpen. Sayali Baghat's role was a total joke for me she needed more appearance's and the music was Okay with Asha Bosle in a track you cannot get wrong! My finale Verdict this movie maybe not Rock at the B.O but the quality of the movie and the content will sure amazed you like it did to me! 8/10 Go for It!
