With their explanation and situation not being fruitful they are brought into the interrogation room of the International airport to be questioned by the CISF.
With looks that are totally anti-terrorist, these simple guys get into crazy trouble, as their hold up doesn’t turn up the way anyone expected. After all, looks are deceptive. Everything that they say or possess or even do leads them to further obstacles. Whether it’s the suspicious footage of the boys being at Rashtriya pati bhawan, or the Arabic and Pakistani Porn that they find in Rohan’s bag, Whether it’s the bomb like looking device in Dhruv’s bag which he states to be his physics project or the fact that the 27-year-old Bulai who resembles a most wanted terrorist and doesn’t carry any id or even a cell phone. At the same time the Intelligence has reports that a group of terrorists are planning some sort of an attack. Do these 4 guys have any involvement with the terror group or do they have different plans altogether.
Are looks always deceptive? Could these four innocent looking guys be hard core terrorists involved in one of the biggest terror plans? Shakal Pe Mat Ja… is a film which deals with all such deceptive goof ups, mistaken identities & madness created due to being there at the wrong place at the wrong time.
