Storyline

After the passing away of his wife, Pooja, Delhi-based Vikram Madan, enrolls his daughter, Priya, in a boarding school in Amritsar, and re-locates to work as a Mechanic at Chandigarh Airport. His daughter informs him that she is on her way to Amritsar on a hostel-trip on Indian Airlines Flight IC147. Shortly thereafter, Vikram will be informed that the flight has been hijacked to Dubai by Islamic terrorists, who want the Indian government to release one of their comrades, Rashid Omar, or else they will start killing the passengers and crew one by one at half-hour intervals.

Another formula film
10 September 2008 | by (Korea (Republic of)) – See all my reviews

This is another formula film coming out of the latest edition of Indian producers' film manual......... put some Muslim names as terrorists, don't miss any opportunity to insult that religion, copy some scenes from Hollywood and old Indian movies and bingo......... I have never seen such a predictable movie before. The hero of the movie is first shown as a pilot or co-pilot when his wife got killed in some plane hijack and then he becomes the engineer and knows all the tricks and techniques about the airplanes. The plane is standing on the airport and Mr. Hero is digging in holes in plane's floor with a drill machine and no one listens to it. Looks like the movie is made in some hurry and no importance has been given to editing and script. 2 out of 10.
