The film, about racism against Asians in London, was shot in a span of 30 days in U.K. and budgeted between Rs. 4.5 and Rs. 5 crores.[1][2]


The film starts when a Sikh couple alight from a bus at night time on a isolated street. The woman is pregnant. They are followed by racist goons and are attacked. Later I (Sohail Khan) along with his father Kulbhushan Kharbanda reach London. They went to the house of their son who is living along with his wife, son and teenaged daughter. Later they see news and come to know that the bodies of Sikh couple were found and it was a suspected racist attack. They attend the last rites of deceased couple. Later on the goons attack Indian store owner. These goons believe that England belong to white people. The family has to taste racism when Kamal (sister in law) of I is cornered and sexually humiliated. She comes to house in shock. 'I' came to know about this and beats three white racist goons. But his brother didn't lodge police complaint. Later on 'I' is attacked by Pakistan who is running a boxing club. This attack is ordered by white racist goons as they don't want to attract police. Later on its free for all fight between I and the gang leader of racist group and I manages to teach them a lesson.
