Sonia et Naina Sehgal (toutes deux personnifiées par Kajol) sont sœurs jumelles. Bien que leurs caractères soient totalement opposés - Sonia, extravertie, vit une belle histoire d’amour avec Kabir (Jas Arora) tandis que Naina se montre très timide – elles s’entendent bien et sont proches de leur mère (Tanvi Azmi). Mais un jour, tout bascule : Gokul Pandit (Ashutosh Rana), recherché par la police pour meurtres et viols de jeunes filles, attaque Sonia alors que celle-ci était au téléphone avec sa sœur. Naina ne peut oublier les cris de Sonia qui résonnent dans sa tête et se jure de retrouver Gokul pour venger sa sœur. Malgré les mises en garde du commissaire Santosh Singh Walia (Pramod Muthu), elle fait appel à Suraj Singh Rathod (Sanjay Dutt), commandant aveugle à la retraite, qui la conseille pour éliminer sa peur de Gokul et la prépare physiquement pour sa chasse à l’homme. Mais à la suite d'une dispute, Suraj refuse de continuer à apporter son soutien à Sonia qui se lance seule à la poursuite de son ennemi.
