Unkempt and unruly-looking, Balajit Roy (Sanjay Dutt), gets released from a room in Bangkok that he had been forcibly confined to. Reflecting on his life as a Software Engineer; his first wedding anniversary with his expectant wife, Nisha (Celina Jaitley); his friend, Joy Fernandes (Mahesh Manjrekar); and his house by the jetty. It is here that an unknown male shoots a tranquilizing dart, and he wakes up in a dark cell, is fed fried Won Tons twice a day, and has a TV set for company. He watches the world news - Nisha's murder with him as the prime suspect; the events of September 11, 2001; the devastating 2004 Tsunami; and the fall of Saddam Hussein. Valium gas is injected into the cell, he is rendered unconscious, taken out, groomed, while the cell is cleaned. This becomes a routine in his life, and then after 14 years he is let out. With the help of a savvy, street-smart taxi-driver, Jenny Singh Sarji, and Joy, he sets out to locate the person(s) responsible for his confinement, and Nisha's homicide.

Goofs:
Miscellaneous
When Bala is fighting his way through the horde of guards inside the prison building, right before he gets stabbed in the back, the guy who stabs him steps on a baseball bat. The bat is completely hollow (so when it was used in filming it didn't actually injure anyone), but when the stabber steps on it, the bat is crushed and actually bends in the middle.

Audio/Video Mismatch
Near the end of the lovemaking scene, John Abraham finishes off the people in the fighting ring. He throws a punch that misses one of the fighters by about two feet, yet it makes a hitting noise and sends the guy spinning.

Continuity
The knife in Balajeet's back changes positions from the center to top left.
