Maya soon learns that Vikram could be a convict on the run and alerts the cops, who nab Vikram and discover the dead body of her husband Shekhar in the house. Maya accuses Vikram of the double murder but Vikram pleads innocence. The case is assigned to officer Dev (Akshaye Khanna), who must decode the mystery in three days whether Vikram is the victim of Maya’s deceit wrapped in beauty or is Maya indeed the damsel in distress that she claims to be?
