Plot Summary

The film portrays the kidnapping of a little girl of 10, who is out with her father for the day. Her parents are divorced and her stepfather (a cop) steps in for the investigation. The suicidal mother has an ax to grind with both her ex-husband and her current husband. As the investigation proceeds, the characters are placed in sordid scenarios that reveal their unsavory sides; the mind games between the both the fathers in particular lend the procedural its most gripping drama as everyone else is getting greedy and ugly not caring about the kidnapped girl.

Trivia Anurag Kashyap personally requested the parents of child actor Anshikaa Shrivastava who played Kali Vasrsheney, not to allow her to see the film because of its dark theme. See more »
Goofs When Rahul is given 50 lakhs by the police to hand to the kidnapper, the amount should have been 20 lakhs instead. A few scenes before we see the police catching Shalini's brother who had actually demanded the 50 lakhs. So, that would leave the police with the phone call (by Rakhee) the source of the real kidnapper. And Rakhee had actually demanded 20 lakhs, not 50. See more »
