Varun Chakrapani (VC), a Squadron Leader with the Indian Air Force, is posted in Srinagar. The bold and beautiful Leela Abraham, a junior doctor, comes to Srinagar to work in the Government Hospital. They meet due to VC’s injury and their stormy affair begins. Kashmir’s border skirmish grows into the Kargil war and Leela decides to leave CV’s vulnerability. Their story mirrors the picturesque and turbulent Srinagar that it is set in. Seemingly perfect and beautiful on the outside, but hiding deep scars. The Oscar-winning A.R Rahman composed its music.
