Dr. Romesh (Arjun Mathur) was a young medical intern who dared to dream. He was in awe of Dr. Asthana (Kay Kay Menon), the Chief Surgeon of the Shekhawat General Hospital. All he wanted was to be like him. He lived in with Dr. Riya Srivastav (Vishakha Singh), his co-intern and the love of his life.

However, when an eight-year-old boy, Ankur Arora dies due to Dr. Asthana's medical negligence, Romesh realises that a good surgeon is not necessarily a good person.


Together with Ankur's mother Nandita Arora (Tisca Chopra), and lawyer Kajori Sen (Paoli Dam), Dr. Romesh sets out on a turbulent journey to fight for what is right. A fight for justice against his mentor, the hospital and the love of his life who was initially against him for the fear of ruining her career and future. All the necessary evidences against Dr. Asthana were destroyed or literally snatched.The witnesses like Dr. Riya, who was the witness of the operation on the day of the operation, and the nurse Rosina who had informed Dr.Asthana about Ankur's eating food before the operation, also lied in the court. But later, Riya shoots the confession outburst by Dr.Asthana in her mobile, thus leading to the arrest of Dr.Asthana. Truth won no matter how influential the culprits were and how weak the evidences were.

    The movie received mixed reviews. Subhash K. Jha gave the movie 4 stars and said, "Indeed The Ankur Arora Murder Case is a far cleverer, wiser and relevant film than most of what we get to see these days. Bursting at the seams with acting talent director Suhail Tatari's restorative drama hits us where it hurts the most. The conscience." Meena Iyer of Times of India gave it 3.5 stars. "Tatari is a winner in his choice of a subject. The story that has been researched from a true life incident does provide meaningful insights about the medical fraternity and facilities. However while the film is an eye-opener on medical skullduggery, it fails to become cutting edge cinema because the screenplay-offers few surprises." said ToI. Shubhra Gupta of Indian Express said "Pity because this could have been a medico-legal thriller with teeth." and gave it 2 star. Tushar Joshi of Daily News and Analysis gave it 2 stars. "The film engages you in the beginning but loses steam because of a its weak execution." wrote Tushar Joshi. NDTV Movies gave it a rating of 2.5. Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave it 3 stars.


    The production of the film began in September 2012, the initial thought was to shoot the film in the same hospital in Delhi where the case happened.
