"Darr" is fear. And fear beats in every lover's heart. Fear that your love may not be reciprocated fear that you lose the one you love, fear that your beloved could have a change of heart. In short, fear is the villain in every love story. But in "Dar" fear is the ultimate expression of passion, of obsession and of sacrifice.

"Darr" is Rahul's story whose love and obsession for Kiran frees him from all fears of life and death.

"Darr" is Sunil's story, whose enduring love and passion for Kiran gives him the courage to face the fear of death.

And finally "Darr" is Kiran's story who is caught between one ma's love and another man's obsession. She fears one and fears for the other. One stands for love the other for life.

In this battle between love and life, the supreme victor is Love, because Love always wins, in Life and in Death.
