Where did you watch this movie?

Taking place in the span of just one day, the 16th of September, this adrenaline-pumping thriller revolves around an event taking place at a crowded traffic junction in Kochi. Two friends, Raihan (Vineeth Sreenivasan) and Rajeev (Asif Ali), travelling in a bike are fatally hit by a speeding car at the signal. Raihan was all set to interview a superstar, Siddharth Shankar (Rahman). Also at the junction, in another car, was a surgeon Dr. Abel (Kunchacko Boban). Sudevan (Sreenivasan), a police constable, who had been suspended for accepting a bribe, had rejoined duty at the nearby traffic police station around the same time. As fate would have it, the lives of all these individuals intertwine in a curious way from then on. The doctors fail to rescue Raihan and his heart is all set to be transplanted to Siddharth’s ailing daughter. They have to carry the heart all the way to Palakkad, against seemingly insurmountable obstacles and with time running out. Will they succeed in their mission impossible?
