Vikas Sigar, an ambitious journalist from India, is invited to head the Indian operations of Istanbul-based AL JOHARA, a news channel murmured in journalistic circles to be the mouthpiece of international terrorists. However, the prospect of an immediate promotion makes him accept the dubious offer. A three month orientation program before he takes on the Indian operations brings him to Istanbul, Turkey. Away from his wife Anjali, who is also an equally headstrong journalist, and against the decision Vikas takes. Once in Istanbul, Vikas realizes that the channel might have a deeper link with Abu Nazir, the world's most wanted terrorist, than just exclusively broadcasting his tapes. Vikas digs deeper into the channel and its workings, only to find his life may be in danger. Now his only hope for survival is to ally with Rizwan Khan, an ex-Turkish force commando who knows all the secrets and is willing to help but also has his own agenda. The other players in this espionage set-up include Owais Hussain, a commando-turned-journalist, Ghazini, a suave media magnate, Khalil Nazir, a deadly terrorist, and Lisa Lobo, the mysterious femme fatale.
