Featuring a stellar cast including Ajay Devgn, Amitabh Bachchan, Rakul Preet Singh, Boman Irani, Angira Dhar, and Aakanksha Singh, Runway 34 took the silver screen by storm upon its theatrical release on 29 April 2022.
Captain Vikrant Khanna, a skilled pilot, finds himself in a challenging situation as he prepares for a flight from Dubai to Cochin. Despite indulging in alcohol and late-night festivities before the flight, he boards the aircraft feeling fatigued. His co-pilot, Tanya Albuquerque, joins him for the journey. However, unexpected circumstances arise when a cyclone hits Cochin, forcing them to consider an alternate landing destination.
Against Albuquerque’s objections, Captain Khanna suggests diverting the flight to Trivandrum. His decision sparks scrutiny during the subsequent inquiry. It is during this inquiry that Khanna unveils a remarkable ability: a photographic memory. He explains that despite closing his eyes during the landing, he vividly imagined and remembered every detail, allowing him to execute the landing flawlessly.
