STORY

Major Event: The film opens with a major event, a music contest specially organized for doctors from around the world. Among the talented participants is Dr. Vohra, who reveals that he is one of the finalists selected from a pool of 7,000 doctors.


Dr. Vohra's Backstory: Through a series of flashbacks, we delve into Dr. Vohra's backstory, understanding how he became an Army doctor and chose to specialize in oncology after his mother's tragic battle with cancer. Despite his efforts, he couldn't save his father-in-law and his brother from the same illness, further driving his dedication to his profession.


Years of Dedication: The narrative explores the subsequent years where Dr. Vohra devotes himself wholeheartedly to his mission of saving lives, working tirelessly in the medical field. Following his retirement from the army, he joins a Guru Nanak Dev Hospital at Tarn Taran Sahib that provides free cancer treatment to patients and later becomes a professor of surgery, imparting his knowledge to aspiring doctors.


Personal tragedy: Dr. Vohra's wife falls ill during her visit to their son. A routine checkup reveals an advanced stage of cancer, leaving no hope for treatment. This devastating diagnosis shakes Dr. Vohra to his core, leading him to return to Jalandhar to care for his ailing wife.


A New Chapter: After his wife's passing, Dr. Vohra honors his commitment to the college but vows to never practice surgery again, avoiding the operating theater and intensive care units. Seeking solace and a fresh start, he discovers his talent and passion for music.


Onstage Transformation: The film culminates in a pivotal moment where Dr. Vohra takes the stage in front of a large audience, participating in the music contest. Though he may not win the competition, his heartfelt performance resonates deeply with the audience, winning their hearts.


Spreading Happiness: Dr. Vohra embraces a new purpose in life, dedicating himself to singing and traveling. While occasionally offering advice to friends and family over the phone, he focuses on spreading the message of happiness through his music, finding fulfillment in touching the lives of others.
