Zakhm

Music director Ajay (Ajay Devgan) argues with his wife, Sonia (Sonali Bendre) over whether to give birth to their child in a foreign country or in India (because of the insecurity caused by the Mumbai riots).Ajay soon learns that his mother (Pooja Bhatt) has been burned by a group of Muslim rioters while leaving a temple and is in critical condition. In flashback, the struggles which his mother had to undergo to raise her children are shown. She was in love with a Hindu film producer Raman Desai (Nagarjuna) but was not allowed to marry him on account of her Muslim faith. He marries her but does not document or acknowledge their marriage as it was done without any traditional upholdings.

The fact that she had children with a Hindu man forces her to hide her faith and live her life as a Hindu, even in front of her son.After his fathers death, Ajay realises his mother is a Muslim. She makes him promise to bury her according to her faith when she dies, for it is only through a proper burial that she will be able to find herself reunited with her lover in heaven. Ajays mother succumbs to the burns. Sonia learns about her mother-in-laws past life and decides not to leave Ajay.

She stands by him and supports his decision to bury his mother. However, Ajays task is impeded by a fundamentalist leader Subodhbhai (Ashutosh Rana) wanted to make this a political issue and encouraged the Hindu youth to kill Muslims. Anand (Akshay Anand) happens to be a youth leader and Ajays brother. But when Anand comes to know about Subodhbhais intentions, he stands by his brothers side to bury his mom as per Muslim faith. Her body is buried as she wished, and she reunites with Raman in heaven.
