The film is helmed by acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom who has directed A Mighty Heart, Welcome to Sarajevo and Butterfly Kiss. It stars Dev Patel and Jim Sarbh as well. It is said to be a "propulsive, globetrotting thriller" that takes the audience through a "a breathless tour through the shadowy underworlds and hidden realms of Pakistan and India." Dev Patel plays a "man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding—armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be (Radhika Apte)."
