What’s the movie about
Sam Grover: Emraan Hashmi
Sam Grover is a young upwardly mobile investigative journalist working for a large News Corporation, Pulse 360 based in Gurgaon, Haryana. The product of an alcoholic father and a mother who abandoned him when he was only 4 years old Sam is fuelled by the insatiable desire to know the truth and get to the bottom of any story. He is in a live in relationship with his girlfriend, Ahana Sharma for the past few years. When his prime time story profiling a contract killer goes horribly wrong Sam finds himself a scapegoat in the world of Corporate Affairs.
Ahana Sharma: Sagarika Ghatge
Ahana Sharma is a young artist who runs an art gallery in Delhi. Ahana and Sam have been in a live in relationship for several years. Originally from Mumbai and from a more affluent family than Sam’s, Ahana often has to bear the brunt for Sam’s sometimes hasty and brash decisions. Ahana and Sam are at a point in their relationship where they have started to take each other for granted, and although they deeply care for each other need a reminder for the love they once shared.
Lisa Kapoor: Neha Dhupia
Lisa Kapoor is the Head of Corporate Affairs at Crime 24 a News Channel with a rather dubious reputation. Lisa recruits Sam for the position of Editor in Charge after Sam is fired from Pulse 360. The offer includes a hefty paycheck, a new BMW and a fancy penthouse. Not to mention, the beautiful Lisa herself who makes no qualms about her attraction to Sam and is not afraid to pursue him either. The beautiful and professional Lisa is a tailor made combination of the sensuality of Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct and the shrewdness of Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton.

A man single mindedly driven by his greed and personal glory.
