|Anuradha Verma (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) is a prominent criminal lawyer and a single mother who has never lost a case. On the day of a parent-child race organized in her daughter Sanaya's (Sara Arjun) school, Sanaya gets kidnapped and kidnapper contacts her and tells her that she has to defend a convicted felon to get her daughter back. Anuradha has to lie to police and her friends that Sanaya is safe at her grandmother's house.The felon is Niyaaz Shaikh (Chandan Roy Sanyal) who is convicted for the rape and murder of a young woman and the case against him is set for judgement in four days. The kidnapper keeps track of Anuradha very closely to make sure she complies with his demand. As all evidence suggests that he is the murderer, Anuradha has to work hard to win the case and with the time running out, she tries to get help from her police friend Yohan (Irrfan Khan) who has been suspended from the police force by other corrupt officers for flaunting the rules and regulations too often. The case against Niyaaz Shaikh is closely monitored by a powerful politician Mahesh Maklai (Jackie Shroff) who asks a renowned public prosecutor (Atul Kulkarni) who has been defeated by Anuradha in the past to take up as rape is a critical issue the current government is fighting.
Anuradha tries to gather information by hook or crook, including lying to the victim's mother Garima Chaudhary (Shabana Azmi), during which she figures out that Mahesh Maklai's son Sam was the victim's boyfriend who was intoxicated during the murder.
Anuradha is able to get Niyaaz out on bail due to lack of evidence and also implicates Mahesh Maklai and Sam as co-conspirators of murder, thus destroying the political career of Mahesh Maklai. As Yohan and Anuradha continue digging, they end up finding that Garima is behind all this and she was the one who kidnapped Niyaaz with the help of a paid aid and burned him alive since she finds the death row to be less of a punishment for someone who brutally raped and murdered her daughter. Anuradha,though initially infuriated after finding the truth about Garima, offers her services for her case in the end.
