Ex-pilot Vikram Madaan is an aircraft maintenance officer at the Chandigarh airport. Years ago his wife was killed by hijackers when she was traveling on a flight piloted by him. His only daughter, Priya, is studying in Delhi. She has been selected by her school to go to Amritsar as she has topped the school. She is on a flight from Delhi to Amritsar with her teacher when the plane in which she is flying is hijacked by terrorists. The hijackers demand the release of Rashid Omar, their accomplice or else the hostages will be killed. The flight is forced to land at Chandigarh airport for refuelling before taking off to Dubai. Vikram seizes the opportunity and quietly enters the aircraft to save his daughter and the other passengers. He is aided in his rescue operation by Saira, an air hostess onboard.
