If you are not living on the edge you are taking up too much space 'the mantra that defines the youth of today. But what happens when the edge gives away.
Shaitan is the story of 5 youngsters set in the urbanscape of Mumbai. Amy, Dash, KC, Zubin and Tanya. Young, intelligent, good looking and 'uber cool'. With no hang ups and no boundaries, excitement is what they seek till a 'moment' changes everything. An accident and their actions to cover up lead them through a series of incidents across the roads, streets and bylanes of Mumbai and into the dark side the lurks within all of us – The Shaitan.
Inspector Mathur entrusted with the unenviable task of chasing the youngsters down exposes the underbelly of the Police system and crime while grappling with his inner Shaitan. The confluence of the two sides brings across the ultimate explosion of action drama and thrill on Indian screens that is best described as real and raw.
