Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Mohit Suri's darkly violent romantic thriller Awarapan observes the quandary of an underworld character forced to make a fateful decision when faced with absolute corruption. Emraan Hashmi stars as Shivam, a henchman in the employ of a brutal crime boss, Mafioso Mallik (Ashutosh Rana). Mallik's latest mission for Shivam involves sending him out to check on Reema (Mrinalini Sharma), one of the boss's Pakistani sex slaves, in an attempt to test her romantic loyalty. Suddenly, upon discovering that Reema is indeed erotically unfaithful, Shivam finds himself faced with two options: either carry out Mallik's difficult orders by executing the young woman, or set Reema and her lover free. As Shivam explores this quandary, he is suddenly flooded by bittersweet memories of a past love that dramatically impact his decision.
