The honest surgeon Dr Roy (Mohanlal) falls for the U.S.-returned Dr Annie (Heera). When Annie discovers a frightening organ-smuggling racket in her hospital, she is killed and Roy framed for her murder. However, on his way to jail, he escapes when the police van is hit by a train. A fugitive from justice, he tries to find out the truth, eventually helped by a police officer (Alex) who shoots the bad guy. The Sivan brothers’ team of director and cameraman combine to make a technically efficient thriller taking its cue from the film version of the television series The Fugitive. The Hindi version directed by Mahesh Bhatt was called The Criminal (1994).
