Synopsis

Altraaz is a film about Raj Malhotra (Akshay Kumar), Sonia Roy (Priyanka Chopra), and Priya Malhotra née Saxena (Kareena Kapoor). It is inspired by the 1994 hollywood movie "Disclosure" starring Michael Douglas and Demi Moore.

Raj and Priya accidentally meet each other and fall in love and marry each other. One day Priya gets pregnant and the couple is very happy. Raj even buys a bungalow for the couple. They are very happy with their new lives.

In his past, the story then starts on January 21st with Raj waiting for his promotion to be entitled as C.E.O. The chairman (Amrish Puri) arrives with his new wife, Sonia Roy. Sonia Roy sees Raj and goes to the stage. She discusses something with the chairman and then announces the promotions. The post that Raj was expecting was given to his friend Rakesh (Vivek Shauq). To Raj's surprise, he was included in the list of Board of Directors.

They had a party that night and Priya also comes with Raj and they all enjoy. Sonia starts flirting with Raj even in front of Priya. Priya doesn't like Sonia's behavior and warns Raj not to go into her premises. Raj agrees.

The next day, Rakesh tells Raj that they have a defect in their new mobile pieces and its production needs to stop. The defect is that the call goes to two people at once, the one we are trying to call and the other maybe anyone in the phone book contact list. He tells that they will need the permission of Sonia to do this work. Raj thus goes to Sonia's home.

Sonia there tells that she has got a chance to meet him after long years and thus she is very aroused. She hugs him from the back all of a sudden while he was talking to his friend in Bangkok. She tries to rape him but Raj tries to avoid her and goes home. Sonia is angry with Raj and tells her husband, Mr. Roy that he tried to rape her and exploit her. Roy becomes angry and gives Raj his resignation notice. Raj decides to fight against Sonia.

Raj requests his lawyer friend, Barrister Ram Chauthrani (Annu Kapoor) to fight his case and he agrees. In the meantime, Sonia and Mr. Roy have hired Lawyer Patel (Paresh Rawal). They fight a lot but Lawyer Patel discloses that Raj was the one who raped her. When it looks like there is no hope, Raj's friend who was in Bangkok returns and hands him over a tape in which their talk in Sonia's house was recorded. He gives it to the lawyer and the lawyer tests it in Forensic lab and concludes that it is real but he is run over while returning by a person deployed by Sonia. At the moment his assistant takes the cassette and keeps a destroyed cassette in its place and hands it over to the person who ran over his senior. It is handed over to Sonia.

Priya then recollects that the mobile had a defect and they search all the phones in the phone book and find its copy in Rakesh's mobile's voicemail. Priya, who is also a lawyer, now deals the case due to Raj's previous lawyer Mr Chauthrani who was murdered, uses it to prove about Sonia and also reveals that Sonia and Raj had been in South Africa previously where she was pregnant as a result of Raj and Sonia's affair. Sonia aborted their baby as she was selfish and only wanted money, status, luxury and power. Raj left her where she met Roy and used him for his money and power. As a result of being exploited Roy leaves Sonia and she, unable to bear the shame, commits suicide from falling off a building. The film ends with a song, showing that Raj and Priya have a baby boy and live happily ever after.
