Arjun Rathore is a person who has lost his long term memory. But he is now blessed with a unique ability. He accurately predicts specific happenings in the life of yet another individual, Avtar Singh. The duo, who meet in the turbulent times of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi, is unable to understand why such a thing is happening.

However, they develop a brotherly bond and use the ‘gift’ to their advantage. They fight adverse circumstances and begin to climb up the social ladder quickly, thanks to the ability of Arjun to accurately sense the next eventuality for Avtar Singh and his family. If the anti-Sikh riots of 1984 outline the beginning of the story – marking the characters with the turmoil and bigotry of those times, the horrifying Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 outlines the end of the story, which is where it all comes to a crescendo. As the story progresses, we are introduced to Randhir Singh, the son of Avtar Singh, who has been inducted to be a member of a specific mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation. His research and his mission promise to catapult India’s space programme to unimaginable heights. However, his mission faces one obstacle; Arjun’s sixth sense.

When Randhir Singh approaches two renowned neurologists to understand the nature of Arjun’s condition, the doctors face a daunting task. Should Randhir stick to the mission that was based on decades of research by leading scientists? Or should he pay heed to the ever-accurate sixth sense feelings of a single individual?
