Dhokha is a Bollywood film starring Muzammil Ibrahim and Tulip Joshi in the lead roles. It is directed by Pooja Bhatt, produced by Mukesh Bhatt and music by M. M. Keeravani. The film revolves around a moderate Indian Muslim cop, who wakes up and to his horror, discovers that his wife, who had recently been killed in a bomb blast, is accused of being a perpetrator as opposed to a victim of that very crime.[1]



Inspector Zaid Ahmed (Muzammil Ibrahim) is notified during on duty that there has been a bomb blast at a mall. After investigation, it is found out that the suicide bomber responsible was Sarah Khan (Tulip Joshi), Zaid's wife. Zaid finds it hard to believe on seeing his wife's dead body, and claims that he had dropped her at the train station. Zaid is inspected by the ATS (Anti Terrorism Squad) is called off duty temporarily by ATS Chief Raj Mehra (Gulshan Grover), but stands firm to his statement that his wife could not be the terrorist responsible.

One day he gets a postal DVD at his home, and it consists of his wife's dying testimonial, in which she accepted that she is the responsible terrorist. Not believing what he has seen, Zaid decides to visit Sarah's Grandfather Saeed Noor Bux (Anupam Kher). Upon meeting him, Saeed reveals a rather shocking story. Sarah's father had been arrested by the Local Police, and had been beaten as he was suspected for terrorist activities. While being interrogated, he dies. The Police hides his body, claims that he has ran to Pakistan, and was found guilty of being a terrorist.

When Saeed complains about this incident to higher authorities, Sarah, her brother Imran (Abhay Sacchar) and he himself are arrested by the Inspector, and are forced to sign a statement that they don't want to investigate this case. Upon refusal, they make nude videos of Sarah. After Saeed is forced to sign the statement, the inspector (Ashutosh Rana) asks Saeed and Imran to go home, takes Sarah to a cell, and rapes her. Due to this incident, Sarah and her brother start meeting a Molvi (Islamic Preacher) (Munish Makhija), who conveys them to lay their lives by killing Non-Muslims. While Sarah was first in the league, her brother has been missing for a month, and might follow the her.

Zaid, horrified by this tale, tries to find Sarah's brother Imran, and finds him when he is being prepared to blast himself in a few days. As a result of chasing him, he finds out the Molvi behind this, and shares harsh words with him. Later he is kidnapped by the Molvi's men, and is about to be killed, when he fights for his life, and after escaping, tries to find Imran. He pleads with the ATS not to arrest Imran, and brings him to his senses, convincing him to take off the bomb.

It is later shown that the corrupt Inspector is arrested, and sentenced. Saeed and Imran win the case with the help of Zaid. Zaid is restored back to his rank, and resumes duty, while explaining the to the senior police officers regarding how they force terrorists to be born because of not being able to give them justice.
