Synopsis: A Bollywood unit decides to travel to scenic Pahalgam in Kashmir to complete an yet untitled movie. The stars are Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi, and director is Chandran (Sadashiv Amrapurkar). From the onset itself it is quite clear that the stars do not get along with each other, although they portray roles to the contrary. Their hatred for each other goes to such an extent that blows and fisticuffs are exchanged. Then one of them gets killed, followed by the deaths of Producer Dayal (Ajit Vachani), and Leela (Sushma Sheth). The Police are called in, and after conducting an investigation conclude that the person responsible for these deaths is Kuku (Pankaj Kapur) – a mentally ill man, who was present at the scene of the crime and in possession of a gun. But CBI Inspector (Naseeruddin Shah) has his doubts whether Kuku is the real killer- and the only way to find that out is to put Shabana as a bait to lure the killer out into the open. The question remains will Shabana permit herself to be the bait, and even if so, will the real killer, if any, will show his true colors and expose himself.
