Army man Ranjit Singh [Sanjay Dutt] returns home after a long time. Declared missing in action after he inadvertently crossed the border, Ranjit went through trauma and torment as a prisoner across the border.
Amongst the faces to greet Ranjit on his return is that of his wife Pammi [Tabu] and sister Simran [Mahima Chaudhary]. They are happy that their loved one is back, but are shocked to see his condition.
In the Army Hospital, Ranjit is trying to recuperate from the horrifying experiences he has gone through. He sees a face every time he shuts his eyes, only to reopen them in a state of confusion. He has lost his memory, but can only remember this face.
Meanwhile, Pammi and Simran try to help Ranjit to get back to normal life, but in vain. Disappointed, Pammi begins giving up hope when Simran vows to bring Ranjit back to his normal self. How she will do this, no one knows, but she has the support of Ravi [Chandrachur Singh], a folk singer whom she is engaged to.
Simran's efforts pay off and Ranjit discovers the root cause of his pathetic condition. His tormentor was Bhaktavar [Rahul Dev], a mercenary terrorist associated with traitors in India.
While Ranjit tries to fight the enemy within and Pammi tries to recapture the glorious moments with her husband, Simran is caught in the emotional dilemma between supporting her brother in his fight against his oppressor and fulfilling her marital commitment to the man she has tied the knot for life.
Sarhad Paar is about the faith and courage of Indian people; a story of the heroism of a traumatised soldier who wants to take revenge for the cruelties he suffered and the hardships his family had to face while he was in captivity.
Blended with sensitive moments, emotional scenes, high drama and raw earthy action, the highlight of the film is the powerhouse performance of Sanjay Dutt, who portrays an array of scenes while portraying a Sikh for the first time.
As Ranjit Singh, he is the patriotic soldier out for revenge as well as the man whose urge for sweet romance with his wife still goes strong. While he is the ever-caring father figure to his sister, he is also the man of action with sharp senses to distinguish between the right and the wrong and to stand up against the evil.
