This political thriller from India is directed by Rajkumar Gupta and stars Vidya Balan and Rani Mukherjee in the lead roles. The film centres on events in New Delhi, 1999. The guns at Kargil are still blazing when another one goes off, this time in the nation's capital. Jessica, a young attractive model has been trying her hand at bartending and is shot dead at a celebrity party. Her crime - refusing to serve a drink to a drunk patron after closing hours.

The culprit is Manish, the son of a prominent politician who is inebriated by a deadly cocktail of alcohol and a sense of entitlement. He pulls the trigger in a simple fit of rage.

With 300 of Delhi's swish set present at the party, many of whom are witnesses to the murder, Manish looks all set to go to the gallows. Except, that it doesn't quite turn out that way. Political manoeuvring means that the killer appears to be about to escape the justice he is due.

But when two women - Jessica's sister, Sabrina and feisty TV reporter, Meera - decide to investigate they soon find they will have to drum up every resource at their disposal to outwit Manish at his own game, if the truth is to have any chance of prevailing over money and political clout.
