Only the famous landmark, old Holy Cross outside the complex, stands there to convince the taxi driver Raj that it is the same location.
Now it becomes very crucial for John to find out the mystery behind this and Caetan is the only person who can help them solve it but soon John and Raj get one more shock when they come to know that Kaytan stays in the very same complex.
