(Released: Jul 24, 2015)
The film opens with Devi Pathak (Richa Chadha) watching porn on her computer screen. Soon she moves in to a shady hotel room with her friend Piyush (Saurabh Chaudhary) to 'experiment'. The cops come knocking; the couple panics. The 'moral police' shove a mobile camera in Devi's face for a confession and the boy manages to lock himself in the bathroom after being beaten by the cops. Once in, he commits suicide out humiliation.
Inspector Mishra (Bhagwan Tiwari) has his chance now to extort money from the hapless girl and her father Vidyadhar Pathak (Sanjay Mishra), an ex-professor selling 'Puja samagri' on a Benaras ghat.
Elsewhere, Deepak Chaudhary (Vicky Kaushal), coming from a Dom family who burn bodies at the ghats of Benaras, falls in love with an upper caste girl Shaalu Gupta (Shwetha Tripathi). Their love story spirals out of control to leave Deepak in an emotional mess.
Meanwhile, Devi has to come to terms with the trauma of losing her friend and also getting the truth to his family living in Allahabad. How she goes about this is what MASAAN is all about.
