Akshay Kumar is back again with a edge of the seat thriller which is based on a true story of the largest human evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the Gulf War in the 90s.

The trailer starts with a call to Ministry of External Affairs where Akshay as Ranjeet Katiyal, who plays a powerful Indian origin businessman based in Kuwait, wants to discuss the situations of the Indians living in the country and asks for urgent help. But what he witnesses is the politics and bureaucracy of the countries. Ranjeet is also threatened by an Iraqi Major who asks him to leave the country with his family without getting into trouble and doing social work for people or else he might also get stuck in the matter.

Ranjeet, one man, risks his family’s life to do the right thing and leads this heroic mission of evacuating Indians when Iraq invaded Kuwait in the 1990.

A proud, happy excited Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to unveil the trailer of the India’s most heroic mission.

The theatrical trailer of Akshay Kumar starrer shows spectacular visuals of Kuwait and is full of emotions, actions, and patriotism and will hold you onto your seats.

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the film also stars Nimrat Kaur. It is slated to release on January 22 four days before Republic Day.

      Every time when India is terrorized by stanis, Indian Muslims have provided support to those stani terrorists. Enough is enough. Excluding the SICKulars, any Indian who wants to contribute to the war against terrorism in India, should stop buying things made in an Islamic country and stop doing business with a Muzzie owned store/business. You have to act!

              The trailer indicates that the film airlift is not a true story but contains false information. There was no Ranjit katyal or any other NRI in Kuwait who pla this major role. The entire work of evacuation was conducted by the Government of India officials posted in Kuwait , Basra , Baghdad and Jordan. They were supported by a group of nearly 100 members of Indian Community in Kuwait who gave Tremendous support in the Operation. Air India did a commendable job by flying 8 -10 flights every day from Amman during the operation. there was no single NRI who did this job and the character of Hero of this movie is absolutely Bugus. The film with a false Hero begins with a false scene which shows Ranjit Katyal talking to Ministry of External Affairs , New Delhi over telephone . The film makers who have shot this scene are not even aware that all telephone calls from Kuwait had been cut off by the Iraqis as soon as they captured Kuwait. Even the Indian Emby could not contact Ministry of External Affairs on 2nd August . The film is a travesty of truth and great injustice to the Government Officials and hundreds of members of Indian community who worked together in the rescue operation. Giving credit to one imaginary NRI for this operation is morally and legally wrong. This film will misguide the audiences and spread false information about this person who never existed. I know every thing about the evacuation as I was posted in the Indian Emby at that time. I was in Kuwait on 2nd august 1990 and I am an eye witness to the entire operation which lasted till November 1990. Another scene showing a highly placed government official saying that "kuwait is not our priority" is false and based on wrong information. The dialogue writer is ignorent of the fact that I.K Gujral foriegn minister had embarked upon a visit , a few days after the attack , which took him to moscow ,washington , amman , baghdad and finally Kuwait to seek a solution of Kuwait crisis. He was the first foriegn leader to visit Kuwait and ure the Indian community for their evacuation . No other foriegn leader visited Kuwait during the period of crisis.
