The story of the film revolves around the hijacked Indian aircraft IC 691 that took off from Delhi on August 24, 1984. It was the fifth Indian Airlines hijacking in seven years. The kidnapping took place at the time of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi (Lara Dota).
With Prime Minister Gandhi seeking to allow the Pakistani government to negotiate with four hijackers (if the plane lands in Lahore), RAW undercover detective Anshol Malhotra (Akshay Kumar), nicknamed Bill Paine, has a different plan in mind. He not only wants to save 210 passengers, but also arrest the kidnappers. The rest of the story revolves around this secret mission to rescue the IC 691 passengers in Dubai.
