The story of this film is about a film unit that goes
for a shoot deep into a forest.
They settle at a place with bare minimal facilities run
by a strange and quirky man called Setu.
As they settle near a pond for the night and sit around
a bonfire, Setu hears a strange sound. He goes to
investigate and never returns. After a desperate search
they discover his dead body.
Panic sets in among the unit members and they jump into
the Jonga but them being unfamiliar with the terrain and
their hastiness result in an accident.
The axle breaks.
Now completely lost and trapped in the jungle as Setu,
the only guy who knew the way out is dead, they don't
know which way to move to get out of the forest... yet
another unit member gets brutally killed thereby, making
them realize that whatever it is that has killed Setu is
out to get them all.
From then on it is a desperate struggle to survive
against that unknown entity. And as their numbers
dwindle, the suppressed passions among them come forth,
they realize that it is not only their lives they are
fighting for, but also for their loves...

The director of this film seems to be an incredible fan
of the thriller genre where this is an unknown or a
known entity which is out to kill at random a group of
people trapped in a certain situation. Remember Raat,
and even Jungle or the Darna Mana hain?
Most of his past films have go th the extent of not
showing the antagonist at all. Agyaat is about the
emotional complexities that extreme fear unleashes in
The story of Agyaat is about a film unit goes for a
shoot deep into a forest, a far away land and then
things happen. The best part of this story is the human
drama of how in a given situation the whole film unit's
hierarchial differences get erased and all of them
become as human as anybody else when faced with death.
Agyaat is shot in the jungles of Sri Lanka.

The hero of the film Sharman (Gautam) is a completely
self obsessed man with no other concern except for his
muscles and the leading lady. The leading lady Aasha (Priyanka
Kothari) bears with him because of his star status.
Director JJ (Howard Rosemeyer) thinks of himself as
India's answer to Steven Spielberg.
While the Producer Moorty (Ishrat
Ali) thinks the director is screwing up the film and
stopping him from becoming the next Yash Chopra.
Laxman (Ishteyak Khan) is a
completely subservient spot boy but with a hidden
monstrous ego. Cinematographer Shakky (Kali Prasad) is
very philosophical in nature and Action Director Rakka (Ravi
Kale) is a frustrated man who hates the leading actor,
Sharman. Script Supervisor Sameera (Rasika Duggal) is a
simpleton with ideals and a secret crush on the
protgaonist Sujal (Nitin) who is an Assistant Director,
who in turn has a huge crush on the leading lady of the
film - Aasha.
It all begins when the
camera conks off... They have two days waiting for the
replacement to arrive and with no form of entertainment or
communication when Setu (Joy Fernandes) suggests a camping
trip into the forest, they jump at the opportunity. As
Setu drives them through the jungle around the undergrowth
in a relic Jonga, they begin to wonder how Setu can
remember the way back as the jungle looks the same all
