I place a sum of Rs. 2, 00, 000. I raise to a sum of Rs. 3, 00, 000.
I call a show. It seems that I am having quite a day. It is not possible for you all to defeat me today. – You think so? Let me show you. See this!
Here you go. Come on, kids. I am so tired. It was such a long drive. Hemant, you know that we are here on a vacation.
So you can rest for a few days. All right? – Fine. Open the door, I’ll get the luggage. – Yes.
‘Gambler.’ Hemant! Come here! Quick! The door was unlocked.. Get the kids in the car. I’ll take a look.
Hemant, take care. Come on, kids. There are multiple stab wounds. The body seems fresh.
It seems that he was killed last night. Died at the gambling table. There are five glasses and five hands of cards dealt so it seems there were four more people here. One of them must be the killer. It could have been an outsider. Purvi, Pankaj, check the doors and windows for any signs of a forced entry.
– Mr. Hemant. Who is this man? Sir, I have never seen him before. This man is lying dead in your house and there are his pictures all over your house. How can that be?
A stranger comes to your holiday home and gambles and gets killed! How is it possible? Is there no guard around here? There was one and he has been here for years. He died four months ago and since then there is no one here as a guard. We thought that we will hire a new guard.
Sir, please believe me. I am telling you the truth. I have never seen this man. I have no clue why he is here and why are his pictures around. Pankaj.
Sir. Sir, there is no sign of forced entry. The back door has no lock and the latch can be opened from outside. They must have entered through there.
Outside the living room window there is a thorny plant. We found this rag stuck on that thorns. It seems someone was keeping a watch on them.
When that person escaped his garment must’ve got stuck. So with the victim there were four other people inside and one person outside. So a total of five.
So there should be five witnesses to this crime. And if we get any one of those five then we will know what happened here last night. There are three people who know of this murder. They have identified the victim.
When are they coming? They will be here by 1:00 p.m. We have got three of them in one go. Not bad. They saw the news and they have come forth to meet us. Splendid.
If there are bad people out there then so are good folk. Then why did they not file a report last night. Sir, they are the three. Pritam, Ranvir and Vikrant.
Pritam, Ranvir and Vikrant. You all know of this murder. – Yes, sir.
Let us have their statements taken individually. Sir, I was right there when Sid was killed. Sid? His name was Sid! Yes, sir.
I never knew them. I met them yesterday for the first time. And then he was killed the same night. Just a minute. Tell me everything in detail. Sir, it so happened.. ‘Sure, sir.’
‘What is the matter? You seem bored.’ ‘Do you not like it here in the club?’ ‘A club? You call this a club?’ ‘It seems that you have not seen one.’
‘Sir, it seems you are new here.’ ‘Are you visiting the city for the first time?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘I live in New York.’ ‘I was here for some work.’
‘I am done with the work and I am bored here now.’ ‘I have a way to help you.’ ‘Really?’
‘What is it? – It is a bit expensive.’ ‘Do not be worried.’ ‘Just tell me the way.’ ‘Think well, it will cost you’ ‘and it is risky.’
‘A risk? I enjoy taking risks.’ ‘As far as it goes for money it is all fine.’
‘Just tell me. – Superb.’ ‘What risk were you talking about?’ ‘Nothing like that. Just a simple gambling game.’
‘Worth a lot of money.’ ‘If you win, you become rich and loser gets nothing.’ ‘You have no problem with the money’ ‘so come with me. Come on.’
‘Where do I have to go?’ ‘To a decent man’s house.’ ‘A decent man you say? Who is it?’
‘The one in the brown jacket and white shirt, over there.’ So the bar tender took you to Sid’s house. Then?
What happened after that? No, sir. He didn’t take me to Sid’s place.
He introduced me to him and then we went to Sid’s bungalow. And when we reached there were already two people. Here’s my move worth Rs. 2 lakhs. Show. Show.
Wow! What did you have? You’re winning every round. Tell us the secret to it.
Let us win too. It’s nothing like that. It’s all about luck. And today the luck is in my favour. It seems so. Shall we have another deal?
Yes. Okay. – How is this possible?
I told you, luck is in my favour. Is it your luck or is it something else? What do you mean? – It means you’ve fixed the cards. He must have definitely changed the cards.
This is his house. He might have cameras all around. Or he must have changed the cards. It could be possible.
Do you think that I am a cheat? Of course. Otherwise, why none of us got a good pack?
Why didn’t either of us get it? You’re a cheat. Cheater. Are you calling me a cheater? – Yes. I am calling you one.
You’re unable to tolerate defeat, right? Hey, you! This game is for mature people and not for amateurs. If you want to prove yourself, win this game.
Otherwise, get lost. Mind your words. – You mind your words.
This is my house. Did you understand? Get lost! – No.. It’s just a game.
– Throw him out. Then Harish left his house? Yes, sir.
Even I thought that he left. But he went to the kitchen. In the kitchen? – Yes, sir. In the kitchen. When he came out he was holding.. You are back again?
I asked you to go out. Don’t you understand? – Hey.. Step back. How dare you touch me? – Why are you cribbing.. What did you do?
He killed him. Hey, what have you done? You killed him?
I’ll call the ambulance. He can be saved. He is dead. Let’s call the police otherwise, we all will be in trouble. Won’t we get into trouble if we call the police? We were gambling which is a crime.
We were gambling. We didn’t kill anyone. Don’t act smart. If we call the police everyone will get into trouble and not just me. There’s only one way out.
You guys run. I’ll hide his body and come. Yes. How much did you all lose? Sir, Rs.
30 lakhs. Sir, Rs. 50 lakhs. Sir, Rs. 35 lakhs.
Just a minute. Ranbir, you said that Sid was wearing a white shirt. Yes, sir. He was wearing a white coloured shirt.
And, Vikrant, you said that he was wearing a yellow coloured shirt. Yes, sir. He was wearing a yellow coloured shirt. He was not wearing yellow or white coloured shirt. He was wearing a blue coloured shirt.
I remember it well. How is this possible? When we found the body he was wearing a white shirt. Ranbir is saying the same.
How is this possible? How can a man be killed in different clothes at one time? Sir, these two were not there when Sid was murdered.
What do you mean? It means, I remember it well. This happened six months ago. They were not present there.
No, sir. This happened a year ago. What are they saying? The murder was committed last night.
Exactly. He was murdered last night. And he was wearing a white shirt. Just a minute. What are you all talking? Last night, six months ago, a year ago?
I hope you’re talking about the man who was murdered last night. Am I right? And you’re saying that these two were not present at the time of the murder. Sir, these two were not there. The murder I am talking about was committed six months ago. Sir, murder happened last night.
And the guys over there were some other people. These two were not there. Yes, sir. He’s right. Even I don’t know them.
Are you three talking about Sid? And he met you at Jerry’s club before his murder. Then he took you to Hemant villa.
No, sir. He took me to Sankalp mansion. And he was in Kirti hills. No, sir. He took me to Yash house which is in Curtis road. How can a man die at three different places wearing three different clothes?
Tell me, Salunkhe. Is it? Okay, fine. Abhijeet, Salunkhe has found a proof.
You can go meet Salunkhe. Until them, I’ll talk to them. Sir. Come.
Look what I found. By the way, let me tell you, this case is weird. Yes, sir. The case is weird. And whatever we got to know.. Whatever you know is not that weird as compared to what I am about to say. What happened?
What are you looking at? Nothing. Are you sure?
Sir, I’m listening to you. What are you saying? Okay.. What was I saying? Weird.. Look, we’ve found something similar to his blood.
Blood like? Sir, your assumption was right. It was a dye. You’re here, Ms. Tarika?
I mean, what are you saying? Red dye? How? Wow! You got back your concentration! Hey, I was not distracted.
You all keep troubling me. – Okay. We got this plastic bag from Sid’s body. This bag was stuck to his body with a tape under his shirt.
And this bag contained a dye resembling blood. This technique is used in the film shooting. Or is this a drama? Drama? – Yes.
Drama. According to the information it seems that Sid was a conman. Sid and his friends used to cheat people by faking gambling and murder. It means, even the bar tender was a part of this plan. He used to plan and bring elite people to this card party. After that, this drama of fake murder.
So, this is why, Ranbir, Vikrant and Pritam saw his murder at different places and time. And they’re into this since a long time. But last night, their facade turned into a reality. Every time they used to fool new people in a new bungalow. And the rest is same. The same game, the same fight and every time the drama of murdering Sid.
They used to take money from the people and shoo them away in the name of police case. Everything was same. The plan was great.
But how did he get murdered yesterday? Because last night they made a mistake. What? – Just a minute. Sir. This knife is fake just like the blood.
If someone’s stabbed using this it won’t go inside the body but will go inside its case. Look at this. But if the knife is fake then how did Sid get killed with it? Last night, there was a mishap. It has a screw. Look here.
If you move the screw on the opposite side it gets fixed. It does not go inside. If then someone is attacked using this knife it will go inside the body and not inside the case. Someone has purposely altered this knife. So that Sid dies. The only person who can do such a thing is the one who knows everything about this game.
The one who was in the balcony of the living room. The patch from the garment we found belonged to that person. The one who made sure that everyone reaches the card party will be our medium to reach the killer. The bartender, Dinesh.
Excuse me? I am sorry, sir. There is still time for the club to open. Please come after some time. We have come here to investigate about a case. We are from C.I.D.
– C.I.D? Sir, how can I help you? – We wish to speak to your staff. Is your staff present here?
Not everyone is present here right now. Some people are there in the locker room. They are changing into their uniforms. You people have a bartender named Dinesh at your place. Where is he? – Ma’am, he has not reported to work since yesterday.
He disappeared without informing. But, sir, what is the matter? Has he done something? We will come to know about that, later. Right now, give us his address.
Sir, the address he gave to us was a wrong one. Actually, when he disappeared, I checked on his details in the address book and then I realized that it is a wrong address. I can give you the address but I don’t think you will find him on that address. When you hire people, don’t you verify their details?
Did you know he used to loot people using this bar? What? – And now, we are searching him for a murder case. Murder? I am sorry, ma’am. We did not know about it.
You don’t just come to know. You have to take efforts for that. When there are rules, you should follow them. Do you understand? If only you had done this before this situation could have been avoided.
– I am sorry, sir. What else do you know about Dinesh? Do you know anything about him?
– No, sir. Nothing special. Because he used to speak less.
He remained quite most of the time. Hence, he did not have friends except a girl. Her name is Mansi. She is a waitress over here. They used to get along really well.
However, they never said anything like that. But I think, something is brewing between the two. Did you not enquire with Mansi about Dinesh’s whereabouts? I did ask but she too, doesn’t know anything.
No problem. Summon Mansi. – Yes, sir. Sir, Mansi.
Mansi, was Dinesh your friend? What do you mean by that? Is he all right? There has been a murder. And we think, Dinesh is involved in it. We are searching for him.
Do you know where he is? I myself, am disturbed. I cannot even reach his phone. And the address he submitted here, is fake too.
And you say that he is involved in a murder! Were you too really close? Yes, sir. We loved each other. And we were about to get married to each other, soon.
And that is why, he wanted to get hold of some money. So was he saving money just by working for the club or he had some side business? Apart from this job, he had invested in shares. And he said, he is doing really good. He used to get me expensive gifts and he used to take me to expensive restaurants, as well. So he did not mention you about his fraudulent means?
No. Do you have a picture of him? – Yes. Sir, Dinesh is absconding but we have got hold of his picture. We will circulate it. Sir, Dinesh is absconding but we have got hold of his picture.
We will circulate it. Yes, Abhijeet. Do it. Do it! Sketches of three people are already in progress. The four of them are hiding somewhere, for sure.
– Yes, sir. Sir, there are fraudsters but they aren’t murderers. They have committed a murder by mistake. They are scared and hence, they are hiding somewhere. We have to take advantage of this fear. We will scare them so much that they will get nervous and make a mistake.
And then, we will catch them. – Yes, sir. Sir, the sketch is ready. – Okay. Sir. – Yes.
– All of them are gamblers. And the one who stabbed, is Harish. Do one thing.. Circulate the three sketches and the picture of the bartender in every police station, railway station, hotel, lodges everywhere!
Send these to every news channel as well. And tell them that these faces should be shown 24 by 7. Every household should remember their faces. How long will they manage to stay out of our clutches? ‘Look at these pictures carefully.’
‘The four of them are involved in a murder.’ ‘If you come to know anything about these people’ ‘call C.I.D on this number.’ ‘All of them are dangerous fraudsters!’ They are.. ‘They are absconding after killing one of their partners’ ‘in the farmhouse of the industrialist Hemant Kumar.’
‘No concrete evidence has been derived by the police’ ‘on investigating the farmhouse.’ ‘C.I.D is searching for them. These are their pictures.’ Hey, listen! There is a match. Put on that channel!
‘They are absconding after killing one of their partners’ ‘in the farmhouse of the industrialist Hemant Kumar.’ ‘C.I.D is searching for them. These are their pictures.’ Did you see that? They know about everything! They are displaying the pictures and other details.
We will get trapped in this really, bad. – Trapped! I had suggested that we run away, long back. But you guys don’t listen to me.
Now, the police will come. They are searching for us everywhere. They are going to arrive anytime. We still have time. Let us run! Take your bags and run!
Sir, Sid was a very good friend of mine. He was my partner. Everything was smooth. All this while, there was never a problem. I don’t know what happened that night. Like everytime, I had stabbed with a fake knife.
But I don’t know how he died, sir. I really don’t know. He doesn’t know. Stop this drama and tell us the truth. Tell us. Sir, we used to target rich non-resident Indians and we used to con them.
Dinesh used to introduce such targets to Sid from the Jerry’s Club. Sid used to take the targets to empty and deserted mansions. Which we used to decorate like Sid’s house. Yes, sir. I have a business as well. I have a real estate agency.
Sir, as per my line of business I used to find out about deserted mansions and I used to make those houses available for this con job. Sir, first, we used to let those targets win when we would win their trust then Sid used to start winning. Everything was pre-planned. Sid used to win, then we would have a quarrel. Then, I used to kill him. It was a fake act.
The targets used to panic after seeing all this they used to leave their money and run away. Get up, Mr. Actor. They’ve left. Are you sure the target is gone? I am sure.
You’ll get hurt, silly. Then, we used to share that money. Something similar happened that night as well. I stabbed him with the knife and.. Let’s call the police and tell them the truth. I don’t want any legal involvement. My passport and US citizenship will get jeopardised.
No.. I am going. Sid, did you fall asleep? Get up, he is gone. There is no need to do over acting. Sid..
He is actually dead! Did the knife actually hurt him! What nonsense are you saying? Sid, get up! The knife.. How did it actually.. Didn’t you check the knife before you stabbed him?
We are not doing this for the first time. It’s the fake knife. We just have one knife. How can he bleed like this? We should inform the police.
We all will be implicated for the murder. What do we do? ‘Your game has turned against you.’ What?
Come, take a look. Take a look. There are photos as well. ‘I have sent the photos to the police department.’
‘I have sent them the address as well.’ ‘They’ll be reaching shortly.’ ‘You love playing games, don’t you?’ ‘Now, play hide and seek with the police officers.’
You people said that you left the money there. Yes, sir. There was 90 lakhs.
We left everything and we ran away. But we didn’t find any money over there. I don’t know, ma’am.
I don’t know how the money disappeared or how did the fake knife get replaced with the actual one. I don’t know, how was Sid murdered. I don’t know anything. Someone trapped you in your own ploy. Did you get it? It’s someone who is well aware of your ploy.
That person tampered with the knife and Sid was murdered. What about Dinesh? Where is he? I called Dinesh after Sid passed away.
He was quite perturbed after I spoke to him. He said, he will leave the city. Dinesh is missing since then.
Did Dinesh plot this? First, he sent Ranbir there and then, he changed Harish’s knife. Then, he hid in the balcony. Then, Dinesh clicked the photographs. And he sent it to Harish. He told them that the police will arrive they panicked and fled.
They left 90 lakhs behind. This means, Dinesh cheated us. Wow! You con people. How can you feel bad when you’ve been conned?
Yes, tell me, Salunkhe. Fantastic. Okay. Salunkhe found a lead.
We had sent a few of Dinesh’s items to Salunkhe. His uniform and his gym bag. Yes, Daya.
The piece of cloth we found in the balcony that matches Dinesh’s uniform. Sir, that means, Dinesh is the murderer. Why is Mr. Pradyuman calling? Hello.
What? G.T. road! Okay, sir. Okay. We have to go to G.T.
road. Dinesh was seen in the G.T. road market.
Mister, have you seen this man? Mister. Have you seen him? – Yes.
Where did you see him? – There. Ahead? – Yes.
Thanks. Let’s go. ‘Mom, Dad, please forgive me.’ ‘I am sorry that I’ve hurt you.’
‘I tarnished your reputation.’ ‘Trust me, I am not a murderer.’ ‘I didn’t murder someone.’
‘I wanted to earn a large sum of money in a short span of time.’ ‘The police is trying to trace me.’ ‘I’ll get caught some or the other day.’ ‘It’s impossible for me to survive.’
‘Forgive me..’ ‘It’s better to die, than to face this defamation.’ Sir, we’ve checked the CCTV footage. He looked very depressed in that. Sir, it doesn’t seem that someone forced him.
He has willingly killed himself. Sir, even the suicide note suggests that he was really ashamed of myself. He was a part of this swindle, but he didn’t kill Sid. Sir, who could it be, if the murderer isn’t Dinesh? No one else was aware of their act of deception.
Sir, could it be a person who they had duped? It could be a case of revenge. That’s possible.
Let’s write all the names of the suspects and stick their photographs on the board. The non-resident Indians who were duped by Harish and his friends. Sir, these are the people who are involved in this case. Abhijeet, we need to find out where were they at the time of the murder. We will get the information from the immigration centre of the airport.
Sir, these eight people weren’t there in India at that point in time. In fact, most of the people didn’t return to India after that incident. Sir, except these four. Our three witnesses Vikrant, Ranveer, Pritam and Mr. Rana. Sir, I went to Mr. Rana’s house and spoke to his wife. He passed away three years back.
They conned him three years back. He was tormented with the guilt that someone was murdered before him and he couldn’t do anything. It made him resort to addictions. That means, we have three suspects. Pritam, Ranbir and Vikrant.
Pritam and Vikrant were in the country but not in the city. The last suspect is Ranbir. Ranbir was present at the crime scene. He is in the photos as well. Yes, sir. He can’t be in the balcony and in the hall at the same time.
It has to be someone else. Then, who could be the murderer? Pankaj, Mr. Rana died three years ago. Get me all the details.
Sir. One person alone couldn’t have accomplished this. He must’ve had an accomplice. I think, the murderer is right before us and yet, we can’t see him. Yes. The murderer is right before us.
Well said, Freddie. Superb. D-Did I, sir? – Yes.
The murder is right before us. But we couldn’t see him. Now, I have understood. Let’s go to the hotel.
Hotel! – Yes, the hotel. As per the theory, he should be there.
If it’s proven that it’s him, then his accomplice and the money will be found. Then, let’s go quickly and catch that person. We won’t catch him. We will keep a watch. If he acts smart, then we won’t spare him. Excuse me.
– Yes. I need to make a call from your phone. Sure, sir.
Well.. Actually, it’s a private conversation. Do you have any other phone? Sir, you can go there and have a word.
Thank you. – Thank you. Listen, mister. – Yes. We are from CID.
We are following that man. We want to hear his conversation. Sir, his phone is connected to this phone. I think, CID didn’t understand anything. The plan has been successful. No..
There was only one man who could’ve ruined our plan. That man was Dinesh. Now, he has reached his deserving end. So, there is nothing to worry about. You don’t worry.
If I find out anything, then I’ll let you know. I love you too. Hey! I can’t say anything to you people.
I don’t know anything. Whether you say anything or not we’ve heard your telephonic conversation. Did you get it? Tell us. Where is the money?
Your silence will only put your life at risk. It would be better if you tell us the truth. Someone else has the money. Dear, please, get the door.
Yes, Mom. Hi. Did you recognise us? ‘Sir, she is Mansi.’ Actually, we need to search your house. This is the search warrant.
Who are you people? – CID. We have a warrant to search your house. But what have we done?
Why are you here? You’ll find out very soon. Search the house. Mr. Daya! Wow! There is blood on these notes as well.
The DNA test will prove that this is Sid’s blood. Correct? Now, tell us. Do you still have questions? Now, she won’t be asking questions.
We’ll be questioning her at the bureau. But how did you grow suspicious of me? Till the very last moment we thought Dinesh is the murderer. He committed suicide and proved his innocence. Mansi, do you recognise this? This is a piece of cloth from your uniform.
We grew suspicious of you because of this. Then, we found out the motive. Did you know why I did all this? Mr. Rana was your father. Right? Yes.
He was my father. He died because of Sid and his accomplices. He couldn’t get over that incident.
He suffered from hyperglycemia. Then, he took to alcohol. Did he know that all this was an act? No! He didn’t know about this.
If he knew it, he wouldn’t have killed himself. He used to consider all this to be true. I was in US when I received a call from mom. Dad was in a vulnerable state. When I came to India, he asked me to fulfil his last wish.
And I need to punish the people who wronged him. Then I promised dad to fulfil his last wish. After that, he passed away.
What did you do after that? Then, I tried to find out. But at that moment, no such case was registered. Then, I recalled that dad had told me Dinesh introduced him to Sid at Jerry’s Club. That’s how you met Dinesh.
– Yes. Then, I took up the job of a waitress. I befriended Dinesh. Then, slowly, I grew close to him. Then, I understood the entire scenario. I understood how they fooled my dad and extorted money from my dad.
Instead of seeking legal aid you ended up doing something unlawful. Deception for deception. You pretended to love Dinesh. Yes!
I had put up a pretence to make them get a fitting punishment. Your lover helped you in all this. Your actual boyfriend. Yes. We both crafted a plan. That night, Ranbir got duped on purpose.
Who tampered with the knife? If this screw is turned, then the blade gets fixed. I had tampered with the knife. I took the photos from the balcony, secretly. Then, I sent those photos to Harish.
And made them leave the place. I took the money and fled the scene. I fulfilled the promise that I had made to my dad.
That money belonged to my dad! Justice was rendered. You are wrong. You have no right to render justice.
The legal system is vested with that right. You’ve disobeyed the law and committed a terrible crime. Now, you’ll face severe punishment.
You both will face severe punishment.
