Story In Detail
The movie is about the life of an Ordinary man Facing an extraordinary Situation in a Single day.
The film begins with Aamir (Vidharth) returning to his native on vacation. Upon arrival at the airport, a mysterious person hands him down a cellphone. The caller asks him to follow instructions given to him. Though initially reluctant, he sees a videon in the phone and then realizes that his family has been kidnapped. Not sure what to do, he hesitantly agrees to follow the instructions when told that his family will be released if he follows the instructions.
The instructor asks Aamir to think of Islam and wants him to do something for his religion rather than work and live in a foreign country. He is then made to go a hotel, where he is given an address. From there, he goes to a PCO and calls an anonymous number. He is then asked to proceed to stay in a lodge, where a lame man asks him to follow him.
He is then led to a house where he is given a red briefcase. Initially thinking the briefcase consists of a bomb, he opens it and finds that it contains full of money. From the lodge, he is asked to catch a particular bus at a designated time.
He leaves to catch the bus, but on the way his briefcase gets stolen. Realizing that the only way to save his family is to get back the briefcase, he enlists the help of a prostitute whom he met at the lodge he was staying. After finding the place, he fights back and takes the briefcase. He then hurries to catch the bus. Once inside the bus, he is told to keep the briefcase underneath his seat and get down. Aamir Ali now realizes that his briefcase has been switched. Instead of money, they have now kept a bomb inside the briefcase.
He begins to hallucinate and boards the bus once again before it leaves, taking with him the briefcase. He then clears an area asking everyone to stay clear of it by saying he has a bomb in his hands. He holds on to the briefcase tightly and begins to think of his family. The bomb blasts, killing Aamir Ali. The antagonist who instructs him to do this weeps upon hearing his plan of creating a terrorist has been ruined.
The film ends with a reporter reporting live from the spot, saying "A terrorist was killed in a bomb attack. But why he decided to kill only himself is unknown."
