The past is a ruthless hunter ...

Ravis idyllic childhood ended the day he watched his mother, Radha, climb into a truck in the wee hours of the morning. Abandoned with his disease-stricken father, Mahesh, Ravi is hurtled into adulthood and the big, bad world. Living in debilitating poverty, Ravi and Mahesh find kindness and shelter in unlikely quarters. But respite from hardship is brief as father and son are parted and Ravi escapes to Mumbai to find fame and fortune in the big city.

Here, in the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, Ravi can forget his past and concentrate on building a future as a successful Bollywood composer. From his humble days in Dharavi, to his fortuitous move to Juhu, his perseverance and cleverness pay off. Soon, Ravi is living his dream in Pali Hill. He meets Sandhya, a beautiful, educated young socialite and is engaged to marry her. But when a body is found on the railway tracks, Ravis charmed existence is threatened by police enquiries that probe into his haunting past.
