For centuries men have been in quest of the secrets of our past. Hidden treasures, fables, myths, all have driven generations to dedicate their life in such pursuits. The greed of glory and power or the thirst of knowledge, whatever the reason may be, lives have been lost but some secrets have remained secrets!
Unlocking the mystery, we present to you a slideshow on this adventure film - Naksha.
Our story starts with the search of one such man, an archeologist named Professor Kapil Acharya who prefers to die with the ancient map, rather than let it fall into the hands of evil! Years later, his son Vicky (Vivek Oberoi), aided by a copy of the same map that he comes across by chance, leaves on a journey to discover what it was that his father dedicated his life in searching, He wants to see to it that his father's quest doesn't go to waste and embarks on a passage that could prove to be treacherous or even cost his own life.
The re-emergence of this quest attracts the evil forces again, as Vicky is abducted by the villain's henchmen. Vicky doesn't know what to do as he is captured in the hands of the vicious bad man. On one hand he has his life at stake while on the other his mission to find what he is looking out for.
Help comes in the guise of Vicky's elder step-brother Vir (Sunny Deol), who is sent there by Vicky's mother to get her son back! Vicky is grateful to be rescued but not too happy about his brother's mission to take him back! Now starts a hilarious tug of war between the two brothers!
Along this journey through the dense forests, high mountains and deep ravines, they encounter one more ally in the shape of Ria (Sameera Reddy). Pursued by the villain and his forces of darkness, this trio sets off on the journey to unravel the mystery behind the map and here unfolds an adventure that is entertaining, mystical, enthralling and pulsating!
What do they find? Was it ever supposed to be found? Was the secret better of as a secret? Are some things beyond our understanding? Can some things not be explained by science?
Do they succeed in this quest? Are some secrets meant to remain hidden in the mists of time? Or do they see the light of day? Does evil manage to overshadow the brilliance of good? These intriguing questions and more are answered along this rip-roaring adventure!
