Karzzzz is a remake of the 1980 Subhash Ghai hit Karz, set amidst the majestic and breathtaking locales of South Africa. Karzzzz explores the different psychological traits every individual possesses. Some of them are so powerful, that they may lead us to vices like greed, obsession, hatred, deceit, betrayal and...even murder.
The protagonist Monty (Himesh Reshammiya) is an extremely successful rockstar based in South Africa. He is immensely popular and worshipped like an idol by his followers. In one of the many parties he attends, he meets Tina (Shweta Kumar), a ballet dancer. For Monty, its love at first sight. But, Tina returns home immediately, leaving Monty fretting. And that's when things start to change in his life. During one of his rehearsals, Monty starts playing a tune and suddenly goes into a trance, accompanied by intense visual flashes - a mansion, a temple, a beautiful girl... Monty loses consciousness.
On further probe, he finds out, that the mansion belonged to a certain Ravi Verma, who died in a tragic accident sometime back. Another flashback reveals that Monty was Ravi Verma in his previous life, married to a beautiful girl called Kamini (Urmila Matondkar). Monty understands, that he has been reborn in his current avatar. Tina, his current beautiful love interest is none other than Kamini's foster daughter. And here starts Monty's new journey of discovery. It's an enthralling journey of vengeance, which he unleashes on Kamini. In close connivance with her wicked accomplice Sir Juda (Gulshan Grover), Kamini had murdered Ravi to take over his estate, leaving his family helpless after his death.
To repay the debt he owed them for all their suffering, Monty now brings his mother and sister out from the dark recesses of their lives. He also reunites with Tina and culminates his incomplete love from a previous life. In this way, Monty absolves himself of all the Karzzzz (debt) he was reborn with in his current life.
