SUPARI is a film about today's youth - their wants, their desires and how far they would go to achieve that makes the crux of the film. Easy money was what Aryan (Uday Chopra), Papad (Rahul Dev), Chicken (Purab Kholi) and Mushy (Akash Saigal) wanted, they didn't want to die old, they had too many dreams to fulfill before that. And the one person who showed them the easiest way to make all their desires come true was Mamta Sekhri (Nandita Das).

Aryan and his friends place a heavy sum of money on a bet allegedly rigged in their favour. And lose. It was money they didn't have in the first place. All their confidence, non-challant and faith in their luck does not impress the 'bhais' who come to collect the money. A hapless Aryan turns to Pandit, the 'paanwallah' who had helped them place the bet. A now hostile Pandit suggests meeting a lady called Mamta Sekhri.

The mysterious Mamta makes a deep impact on Aryan. He is almost relieved, though surprised, by her maternal attitude in willing to help him when she offers him a gun and a cover photograph for a contract murder (Supari). The usually cool Aryan loses his composure but provoked by her contempt agrees to do the job. Thus begins the journey of their transformation and a step towards a realization of their dreams. Death becomes a fascinating game and the power that comes with it addictive. Aryan's relationship with Mamta and his maturity deepens while the rest of the boys begin to enjoy the power. Misusing it becomes easy till Mamta tightens the strings. Even pseudo-power becomes addictive to Aryan, till he looses his best friend, Chicken. Dilnawaz (Nauheed Cyrusi) gets shot by the opposite gang's bullet which was actually meant for Aryan.

Now Aryan wants out and the only person who can help him with that is Mamta. Aryan's guilt of putting his friends into this whole mess which they can't get out of or don't want out of, drives the film to its climax.
