(Premonition! Premonition!! Premonition!!!)

What is Premonition? It is an unseen power by which one can foresee future events.

Every one of us possesses some power of premonition. But very few are endowed with special powers by which one can presage future happenings.

100 Days - revolves round Devi (Madhuri Dixit) who sometimes gets possessed with power of premonition. During that stage she can experience the future shocks in advance much to the disbelief and bewilderment of others around her.

In a state of premonition, Devi sees her elder sister Rama (Moon Moon Sen) being murdered by a masked raincoat man. Frightened out of this bad state of premonition, Devi hurriedly phones up her sister, Rama, and tells her about the premonition she had. Rama is amused at her younger sister's 'hollow' scare.

But Rama, does get murdered - absolutely in the same scenario her sister had feared.

The raincoat man buries the dead body of Rama in to the wall of an old bungalow which is sealed by the government. Nobody could find out the murderer. And nobody could find out the dead body. Five years pass by. Devi meets a businessman, Kumar Ram Kumar (Jackie Shroff). Both fall in love. Devi's college friend Sunil (Javed Jaffrey) used to love Devi from his heart. But he never expressed his love to Devi. When Sunil returns from abroad, he is shocked to learn that Devi had lost her heart to Kumar.

Ultimately, Devi and Kumar get married. The old bungalow (in which the mysterious raincoat man had hurried the dead body) comes back in Kumar's possession after he wins a legal battle over the bungalow.

Kumar advises Devi to decorate the old bungalow while he goes away on tour. In that bungalow, Devi discovers the skeleton of her sister Rama.

In another state of premonition, Devi sees a bald man murdering woman and also some objects like an ash tray with a black cigarette on it, a magazine with a picture of a horse on its front cover, a broken mirror and a Video Cassette titled "100 Days!"

These objects keep haunting Devi till she finds a Video Cassette of "100 Days" in reality. The cassette reveals the identity of the murderer. And Devi experiences a great shock.
Now, who was the culprit?

"100 DAYS" unravels the most unusual chilling mystery for the first time on the Hindi Screen.
