Initially scheduled for theatrical release on 20 March 2020, the film was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic in India.After being delayed for a year, it was finally released theatrically on 19 March 2021.
The film starts with a group of friends cracking jokes in their SUV & suddenly they are rained with bullets. Next, we see Sandeep (Parineeti Chopra) a.k.a. Sandy, is a top executive at Parivartan bank, is waiting for her boss, Parichay, for a dinner date at an upscale restaurant. She meets a friend who invites her to a party later in the evening. Sometime later, she meets Satyendra Dahiya (Arjun Kapoor) alis “Pinky” who informs her that he is a cop with Haryana police & her boss has sent for a car & waiting for her at a different location. Sandy goes with him in his car & she finds his annoying driving, especially since he is continuously on the phone with his boss (informing him of their location) & asks him to turn off the phone. Here she tells him that she is three months pregnant & he should drive more carefully considering her condition. Pinky encounters hooting from an SUV & when his boss asks for his car licence number, he gives it the number of SUV. In a while, the SUV is halted by a police check post & they start firing indiscriminately at it, as shown in the first scene. Pinky, who is behind the SUV, is shocked & takes his car to an isolated place. He concludes that Sandy was the real target & the police wanted to kill him as well & show Sandy as a casualty in a ruined operation on a suspended police officer, is Pinky. He calls up his boss Tyagi (Jaideep Ahlawat), who tries to calm him down.
Sandy takes Pinky to the party her friend had mentioned earlier to get some time to get a sense of the situation. Here she tries to access her SM accounts which are blocked. The police track her & they run from the party. Pinky plans to go to Nepal & Sandy asks him to take her to Nepal & she would give him a million rupees for it. Pinky agrees & takes her in a general compartment of a train & then via bus to Pithoragadh, a border town to Nepal. Sandy is very annoyed by the unhygienic conditions around her, esp since she is pregnant & requests a friendly couple, Aunty (Neena Gupta) and Uncle (Raghubir Yadav) in the market to take them as paying guest. Pinky finds an agent who would create fake documents for them to cross over.
Uncle reveals that he has invested four lakhs in the ‘Swabhiman’ scheme of Parivartan bank. Sandy is alarmed by this & asks him to withdraw his money from the scheme. She then explains to Pinky that the Swabhiman scheme was her brainchild which is a fraudulent scheme designed to get a vast number of depositors in a small-time to save her sinking bank. She wants to quit the bank after taking her share of 32 Crores, which Parichay refuses & this creates animosity between them & the reason Parichay wants to kill her. She later accompanies Uncle to the bank for a refund from the scheme. Here she has a word in private with the manager to scheme off a few million with her intimate knowledge of bank operations. The manager agrees. Later in the night, when the funds are transferred, Parichay’s team in Delhi is alerted & her location is traced. The bank manager meanwhile tries to exploit her sexually & in this scuffle, she suffers a miscarriage. She somehow rescues herself from the bank & Pinky takes her to a shelter provided by the agent. Pinky tends to her wounds & cremates her fetus. Sandy cannot bear this shock & goes into a shell.
Tyagi traces them to a wedding procession which they were supposed to use as a guide to cross the border. Pinky comes to know about this & calls his boss Tyagi to let Sandy pass in return for 1 million he had earlier received from her & his surrender. Tyagi refuses the offer saying it is too late. Later Sandy tells him to go ahead while she has to settle some scores. She returns to the city while Pinky cross-dresses & escapes the police check post.
Sandy understands that if Tyagi’s team gets hold of her, she would be shot dead. She, in turn, surrenders herself to local police & exposes the entire scam of the bank. Her friend comes to meet her in the jail, where she tells her about the arrest of Parichay & 6 cases of fraud he has to deal with. Meanwhile, she receives an envelope by post from Thapa from Nepal, which contains only a few photos of kids dancing at a dance academy in Nepal. This she understands is from Pinky.
