Vimana is perhaps the first ever science fiction blockbuster set in India incorporating themes that are widely popular eg. mysteries of alien visitations, 2012 doomsday prophecies but with a uniquely Indian twist.
Legends have it that Gods flew in aircraft called vimanas and waged war with fantastic weapons. What if these turned out to be true?
College student by day and wannabe fighter pilot by night, Aaditya’s immense knowledge of flying and fighter planes is displayed only on flight sims and Internet forums.
A chance encounter propels him into the centre of an ancient conflict between good and evil that has been raging for thousands of years, revealing to him a hidden world that we today dismiss as mere myths from our ancient past.
Alongside Shiva, Karthik, Durga, Indra and other gods, Aaditya has to stop the terrible plans of Kalki, the prodigal son. Seated at the controls of the deadly vimanas, Aaditya finds himself living his dream in a way he had never imagined possible!
