Vinod Verma always dreams of creating the perfect and fastest train running in India. He will find his dream shaping up when he became an employee of Indian Railways and his plan is being executed; it took him years of hard work and dedication, in-and-out at night and day. After six years the train is finally completed and is called, 'Super Express'. The inaugural of the train will be from Delhi to Bombay with a record speed of 14 hours. In view of the progress Vinod had made during the past six years he had developed many enemies - one of whom is the son of the chair of the railway board Randhir who had a bomb planted in the train risking the lives of about 500 passengers.
