Road is a film about those drivers on the road who help strangers by giving them lifts. Arvind, (Vivek Oberoi) and Laxmi (Antara Mali) love each other, but Laxmi's father dislikes Arvind, so they run away from the house in car (Safari) for Rajghad, as Arvind has a haveli over there. They see a stranger who wants a lift. Vivek feels pity for him but laxmi does not want to give him a lift. Arvind gives a lift to the stranger and the stranger introduces himself saying his name Babu (Manoj Vajpai). Babu starts smoking but Arvind request him not to smoke as Laxmi as allergic to smoke, but he does not listen and continues to smoke. Babu gets hungry and tells Arvind to stop the car at any Dhaba. Arvind says that he is getting late, but at Babu's insistence he stops the car at a Dhaba. After eating, Babu flirts with Laxmi in the car. Arvind gets angry and tells Babu to get down from the car. Babu refuses and shows a gun. Antara then drives the car as they leave Arvind behind. After some time she stops the car at a petrol pump. At the meantime Arvind stops a truck and the truck driver helps him to pursue Laxmi. They find Laxmi and Babu, and then stop the truck in the middle of the road. Babu and Arvind fight, but Babu escapes and hides himself. Arvind, Laxmi and the truck driver finally leave. Arvind and Laxmi spend the night in a hotel. Next morning, when they get ready to leave they see Babu in the car. Babu tries to shoot Arvind but Laxmi manages to drive the car away very fast with Babu in it. While driving, Antara thinks that if she does according to what Babu says then they will be safe so she starts acting as if she empathises with him. Arvind calls the police but the police misunderstand him and tries to to arrest him. Arvind manages to run away in their jeep. At night Babu and Laxmi find a bungalow where they can stay. Babu falls in love with her. The police, by then, comes to know the truth about Arvind, so they help him, by taking him to the bungalow. Babu shoots at them and escapes with Laxmi on a bike. Arvind also chases them on a bike, and then they have a long fight in which Babu gets hurt. Finally, Arvind and Laxmi come together and are happy again.
