The film begins with an American man named George States (Jeff Doucette) who suffers from brain cancer and travels to India to find a mythical snake that can cure him. He hires a local guide to take him to the jungle, where he witnesses a snake couple mating. He shoots the male snake and captures it, hoping to extract its venom for his treatment.
However, he does not realize that the female snake is actually a NÄga, a snake woman who can transform into a human form. She follows him to his hotel room and kills him by biting his neck. She then escapes into the city, looking for her lover.
Meanwhile, a police officer named Vikram Gupta (Irrfan Khan) is assigned to investigate the mysterious deaths caused by snake bites. He suspects that there is a connection between George's death and the missing snake. He also meets Maya (Mallika Sherawat), a woman who claims to be George's wife.
As Vikram tries to unravel the mystery, he realizes that Maya is actually the NÄga in disguise. She has been killing anyone who gets in her way of finding her lover. She also develops a bond with Vikram's brother Vicky (Raman Trikha), who is sympathetic to her plight.
