Set between 2 pm to 6 pm on a Wednesday, this contemporary and socially-relevant thriller depicts an about-to-retire police commissioner (Anupam Kher) narrating a sequence of events that unfolded on a particular Wednesday. They do not exist in any written record, only in his mind and in those of several individuals who were involved, willingly and unwillingly, and how those events affected the lives of all the concerned people.
The narrative speaks about the sequence of events that begin with a phone call to the Commissioner from an anonymous Indian citizen, who claims to have placed five bombs in locations throughout Mumbai, and programmed them to explode simultaneously within four hours and releases four militants. The rest of the movie revolves around the interactions between these two, and the desperate attempts by the police force to locate the caller and ensure the safety of the general public.
