The story revolves around the few Indian passengers from the flight 142. Vir is an air force pilot who got the power of flying and now he can fly like fighter jet or like superman.

They are not the only ones on that BA flight 142, there were other people on flight, Criminals, Politicians, Cricketers, Foreigners and many more. Aman Sen Communicate with the persons on BA flight 142 and unite them to fight the super powered villeins or super-villeins who are killing all the other people on that flight.

This book has superhuman with super powers, politics, end of world scenarios and limits of human responsibility. So “What would you do if you were given the power to change the world?”, Will you help the world? or Try destroy it? or Make yourself Billionaire with help of your power? How will you use your power?
The plot was definitely unique and interesting. All the characters had some true justification for their deeds. The author uses simple words to narrate and it makes easy to go with the flow of the story.
There are interesting powers for the chatacters. Tia can replicate herself and do multiple tasks and combine later (if that replica survives! ) She goes for fashion designing, attacks an army base,watches multiple TV channels etc. Aman,the guy who can connect to any network in the world has one interesting and unique power. A group of such people is opposed by mighty powered invincible super-villains. The clashes between them and its description was really thrilling and presented in front of my eyes.
Overall, this book is a funny,comical yet serious at places when needed. Heard that it's sequel is going to be launched soon. I'm eagerly waiting for that !
