Plot

Dr. Aryan Kulkarni (Akshay Kumar) is an atheist archaeologist who is investigating the nature of Rama Setu, also known as Adam’s Bridge. He believes that the bridge is a man-made structure, while many Hindus believe that it is a natural formation created by Lord Rama.

Aryan is approached by the Prime Minister of India to conduct a scientific study on the bridge. He reluctantly agrees, but his faith is soon tested when he meets Indu (Jacqueline Fernandez), a believer who tells him about the legend of Rama Setu.

As Aryan delves deeper into his research, he discovers evidence that suggests that the bridge may indeed be man-made. However, he is also faced with opposition from those who want to destroy the bridge, believing that it is a symbol of Hindu supremacy.

Aryan must race against time to prove the true nature of Rama Setu before it is too late.
