Shaitan is a Bollywood thriller film, Story, Cast and Production

Shaitan is a 2011 Hindi thriller film, directed by Bejoy Nambiar starring Rajeev Khandelwal,Kalki Koechlin, Gulshan Devaiya , Shiv PanditNeil BhoopalamKirti Kulhari, Rajit Kapoor,Pawan Malhotra and Raj Kumar Yadav. The film was released on June 10, 2011.
Story line: The film starts off with Amy, who is a mentally disturbed girl deeply affected by the attempted suicide and eventual institutionalization of her mother. She moves from Los Angeles to Mumbai, where she meets KC (Gulshan Devaiya). KC introduces her to his gang - Dash (Shiv Pandit), Zubin (Neil Bhoopalam) and Tanya (Kirti Kulhari). They lead the particularly directionless life of Indian youngsters, having fun drinking, using drugs and driving around in a Hummer and on one such occasion, they run over 2 people in a scooter. They quickly leave but are traced down by a slimy cop, who demands 25 lakhs to make the case go away. They hatch a plot to kidnap Amy, who volunteers to be kidnapped. The event quickly turns into a media circus, which puts pressure on the youngsters who go on a gruesome and disturbing killing spree. KC kills a man who attempts to rape Tanya, then nearly kills Tanya herself when he thinks she called the police, while she had actually called her sister. Zubin, who has feelings for Tanya, escapes from the group after seeing a bloodied, unconscious Tanya and is eventually arrested by the police. He confesses everything and the police trace down the slimy cop, who is nearly killed in the chase. Then using technology, they trace down Dash, KC and Amy to a church. KC had called his father to help them out (which led to cops to the church), but Dash disagrees with him and Dash eventually kills KC after their disagreement turns into a bloody fight. Dash himself is then killed by the now high-on-cocaine Amy, who has a violent flashback about her dead mother trying to drown her (while she was a kid), while Dash holds her down in the church. She then stabs Dash to his death, ending the mayhem. Another parallel story line is the life of the cop played by Rajeev Khandelwal, who nearly divorces his wife but gets back together with her as the story progresses and eventually ends. He plays the role of an uptight cop who is not hesitant to be bad to get good done, and on one such occasion, he nearly kills a person and is suspended because of it.
