Awarapan comes from the stables of ace movie mavericks, Mukesh Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt, famous for crafting Bollywood’s biggest musical hits, Zeher, Woh Lamhe and Gangster.

Shot in Hong Kong and Bangkok, Awarapan is an intense and compelling drama of love, passion and betrayal.

Shivam (Emraan Hashmi) loves the sight of a bird in full flight and the scent of morning dew. But his parched heart has never known or felt love. Through childhood, he has served his boss with unflinching correctness and loyalty. His boss trusts him enough to ask him to keep an eye on his alluring girlfriend Reema (Shreya Saran) whom he has kept away from the eyes of his adversaries.

Shivam’s heart melts on seeing her innocence and vulnerability. The atheist turns into a believer, as he begins smiling and responding to life. Reema gives Shivam reason to believe that she likes him. Existence begins to blush for Shivam but only till the reality dawns on him that Reema has a secret lover tucked away and was planning to elope with him. Her game was merely a smoke- screen created to gain freedom.

A shattered Shivam is in a dilemma on realizing that he has been heartlessly used – does he inform Mallik or does he help his unrequited love to achieve the freedom she yearns for?
