A grieving parent wants to clear the name of his son and see that the culprit gets his due in this drama from India. Vidhyadhar Patwardhan (Amitabh Bachchan) and his wife, Sumitra (Sharmila Tagore), are a pair of retirees in their sixties who often wish there was more excitement in their golden years, but are generally content with their lives. Vidhyadhar and Sumitra both dote on their son, Amar (John Abraham), who is in his early thirties, though his rowdy and impulsive nature often worries Sumitra. Amar has been living in England for several years, and when he returns for a visit, he has a surprise -- a fiancée (Anusha Dandekar). However, the happiness of his parents is short lived when Amar is killed when he happens upon a crime in progress on the street. Vidyadhar wants to see the men who killed his son brought to justice, but it soon becomes apparent this isn't going to be easy -- the defense attorney claims that Amar was a drug dealer and that his clients acted in self-defense, and his strategy is unexpectedly successful. Will Vidyadhar have to take the law into his own hands to avenge his son?
