Dial 100 story –
On a seemingly usual night, the police emergency control room receives a call from a woman who appears suicidal. Officer Nikhil (played by Manoj Bajpayee) tries to calm her down and figure out what’s bothering her, but finds out the woman has a gun. As Nikhil urges her to reason about her possession of the gun, she tells him to wait and watch her true intentions. Time passes and more and more calls are exchanged. It is clear to Nikhil that the woman has sinister intentions and her family is in danger. Nikhil has little time to save his family from the clutches of the hysterical woman.
Suspense ensues in the emergency control room when Officer Nikhil receives a call from a disgruntled woman. Soon, the trailer features the woman as Seema Palwa (played by Neena Gupta), who has taken Nikhil’s wife and son hostage. She seems to be acting out of deep revenge, and when Nikhil asks her what she wants, she says she wants justice done. Seema lost her child, and for some reason she holds Nikhil responsible for the tragedy. He must do everything to protect his family from this unpredictable woman.
