The storyline revolves around Shivam (Emraan Hashmi), a heart broken and introvert atheist, gangster, and right-hand man of Bharat Malik (Ashutosh Rana), officially a businessman who runs a chain of hotels in Hong Kong. Shivam is given the responsibility of one of these hotels, which he bears capably and well, making it much more successful than Malik’s other hotels. Malik holds Shivam in the highest esteem due to Shivam’s loyalty, reliability, and business acumen, and treats him like an adored son whom he entrusts with almost everything – indeed, more so than his biological son, Ronnie (Salil Acharya). This is the cause of much jealousy on Ronnie’s part against Shivam, but due to Malik’s outspoken support for Shivam, Ronnie does not dare do openly oppose him. Shivam has a very close childhood friend, Kabir (Shaad Randhawa), who assists him with everything.
Malik’s brother, Rajan (Ashish Vidyarthi), and Rajan’s spoilt son Munna (Purab Kohli) nurture a grudge against Shivam because of Shivam’s repeated conflicts with Munna. Munna is mainly responsible for the start of most of these conflicts; he time and again puts Shivam down as Malik’s slave, once by murdering an employee of Shivam’s hotel who resisted Munna in bed. When Shivam comes to investigate this incident, Munna taunts him, the dead girl, and dares him to tell Malik, resulting in Shivam lashing out against Munna and all his henchmen. This causes an escalation of the feud between Munna, his father Rajan, and Shivam.
One day, Malik asks Shivam to keep an eye on his young mistress Reema (Mrinalini Sharma), whom he suspects of having an affair with someone else, while he is away on a brief business trip. Reema is a young Pakistani girl, a devout Muslim, and a victim of sex trafficking, whom Malik had ‘bought’ in the Bangkok flesh market. If Reema is found cheating on Malik, Shivam is to inform him immediately.
