Parag Dixit is living a dream life with a great job and his loving girlfriend Maansi! However things take an ugly turn when after a series of unfortunate events he suddenly wakes up in jail; handcuffed and randomly beaten up by the cops. Parag is perplexed and in a place far from his utopian life. He tries hard to face away from the ugly truth and wish it's all a bad dream but soon succumbs to the prison anarchy. The only salvation he finds is in Nawab, a convict and a warden who believes that Parag is innocent. Soon, Parag discovers the inner mechanism and the science responsible for the wretched status inside the prison and hordes of broken hearts and shattered souls which managed to find comfort amidst the four prison walls. He is left with a choice, to either live a life that controlled and exploited or fight against the system! Characters: Neil Nitin Mukesh is Parag Dixit. Parag seriously believes he's God's chosen child. In his mid-twenties, Parag already has everything going in his life, loves the luxuries of high living and is willing to work hard and party harder for it. Has his path carved out for him up ahead and is very impatient about getting there...until one fateful evening when everything changes! Maansi (Mugdha Godse): Parag's love interest and an independent woman who lives life on her own terms. Maansi has never asked for the commitment yet because she would like Parag to arrive at the decision himself and she loves him too deeply to question the imminent commitment. A bond that only gets deeper and sealed across the bars because Maansi is Parag's only ray of hope outside the Jail and the reason to go on despite all hurdles. Maansi is Parag's resolve. Nawaab (Manoj Bajpai): No one knew Parag's strength except for Nawaab. In his mid - forties, Nawab is considered honest and humble. He has already served 10 years of his 20 year jail sentence. Very few people know Nawaab's real story and fear him for it. Compassionate yet ruthless when required, Nawaab is the conscience of the story and Parag's moral compass provided, Parag is willing to listen to him. Joe D’souza (Manish Mehta): a rich man’s son, grew up in a swanky, up market locality…Being the only child in the wealthy family, Joe had ended up knowing just one kind of life… the life of luxury… No parent in their right minds would wish for their children to end up behind bars, but when they find them there they are left with no other alternative than to set them free, in whichever way possible… One night on his way back from a big bash, where he had, had one drink too many Joe lost control of his car on a turn… the car climbed the footpath and on its way further crushed seven people, fast asleep in front of their hutments… Appallingly Joe was totally remorseless about being responsible for so many deaths… To make matters worse, he blamed the deceased for being careless and choosing a footpath to sleep on… Thanks to Mr. D’souza’s (Joe’s father) influence and the backing of a good lot of money, Joe managed to get out of jail in no time… Abdul Ghani (Rahul Singh): In his early thirties, Ghani is a tough looking, silent, brooding type. A natural sense of superiority and brutal strength keeps him away from the herd, including Parag who he simply can't stand by face, till an unexpected camaraderie develops. He’s an under trial in jail who is often lured by the underworld inside who want to use him for their malicious interests. His only love in life is his beloved wife Kabir Mallik (Arya Babbar): In his late twenties, Kabir is a sweet faced, wily character who works for the underworld inside the jail and is their chief recruitment officer. Everyone knows who he works for, yet there is a humane side to his character that is his charm.
