Sidharth Malhotra plays both Vikram Batra and his identical twin, Vishal. From a brief glimpse into his childhood, the story fast-forwards to Vikram in college, where he falls in love with Dimple (Kiara Advani).

Their love story is like a Bollywood film, from a father who is against their match to Batra nicking his finger to substitute vermillion with his blood. The 137-minute war drama rests on Batra’s bravery and commitment to the nation and his love story.
