A little mute young girl from a Pakistani village gets lost on her return trip to Pakistan from India. In Kurukshetra, she meets Pawan – an ardent devotee of Lord Hanuman - who is amidst a test posed by his sweetheart`s dad. In endeavoring to find the girl’s parents, he builds up an unshakable bond with her.
It is eventually uncovered that Munni is a Pakistani Muslim as she performs Salah at a mosque, and cheers for the Pakistani National Cricket Team amid a broadcast of an India-Pakistan cricket match. An irritated Dayanand orders Pawan to make arrangements to have her sent to Pakistan through the Pakistani High Commission, where his pleading comes up short; the High Commission is then shut for a month because of protests and strikes. He is coned by a travel agent who claims to have the capacity to take Munni to Pakistan without a travel permit but instead takes her to a brothel, making Pawan crush the brothel and beat up the people who tried to keep her with them.
Pawan at that point pledges to take Munni to her folks in Pakistan, face to face and without a travel permit and visa. He tries to get into Pakistan through away honest to his conscience, small voice and later, accompanied by a Pakistani news reporter.
The videos uploaded by Nawab circulate around the web all through India and Pakistan. A sympathetic senior officer, Hamid Khan (Rajesh Sharma), understands that Pawan is honest, and releases him, defying the request to keep him in prison, which he felt would be trivial with respect to Pakistan. Reacting to a call by Nawab, a huge number of Pakistanis and Indians gather at Narowal Check Post, where Pawan is to come back to India.
As Pawan crosses the border, Shahida keeps running toward the fence and shouts out for him with her now recovered speech. While meeting for the first time Pawan had asked her to call him “mama” and when she shouts out for the first time, it is a heart-wrenching moment. Pawan and Shahida keep running towards each other and embrace.
