Three persons Avinash loved most was his mother, his brother and his beloved. And all three were murdered one dark evening. Tortured and murdered right in front of him by a man called Pratap.

Pratap believes Avinash had bribed and bought a video tape from his man Babu.

A videotape that could land him in jail for the rest of his living days. In pain and fury, Avinash runs the quay side. A resounding shot from an enemy gun and Avinash falls in the deep and disappears in the depths.

He does not know that his brother lives. He is not aware that his beloved lives.

Avinash does not even remember his own name.

There is no past for Avinash only the present. But the present is so full of pain and confusion. What do these people want from him? What tape are they talking about? Who is this Pratap... and Mac... and Camper...? The Devils.

Then comes Nisha, like a beautiful dream during the night and dead before the day dawns... He can still hear her screams "Forgive me Avinash I'm also your enemy".

More people enter his life... the doctor and Inspector Rajan who introduces him to Bindya and says she is his wife but we know he has no wife... who are these people? Friends or more Enemies?

Avinash meets his true beloved again, maybe she will bring his memory back of maybe she will also perish like Nisha.

Run Avinash run...
Fight Avinash fight...
They are out to get you...

But you must get your memory back... before the 15th of August. That is the suspense... that is the climax.

Avinash is a superthriller motion picture of relenting terror-taut and exciting from the opening scene till the end.
