RUNWAY 34 is the story of a pilot facing a tough time. Captain Vikrant Khanna (Ajay Devgn) is a pilot working for Skyline airlines. On August 16, 2015, he is in Dubai and the next day, he is supposed to fly to Cochin, where he’s also based. Vikrant’s friend Sandy calls him to party at night. Vikrant refused at first. But then, he gives in. He visits a nightclub in Dubai with his pal and drinks a lot. He reaches his hotel at 6 am and goes to sleep. He wakes up just on time and heads to the airport to fly the Skyline 777 flight from Dubai. His co-pilot is Tanya (Rakul Preet Singh). Both are informed before the flight that Cochin is rocked with heavy rainfall. The flight takes off and when it’s time to land, Vikrant and Tanya face difficulty. The Air Traffic Control at Cochin advise them to instead land at Trivandrum, where the weather is better. Nevertheless, Vikrant tries to land but fails. He then proceeds to Trivandrum. By then, the weather of Trivandrum also deteriorates. For some reason, the Air Traffic Control team at Cochin doesn’t inform Vikrant and Tanya to not head to Trivandrum. By the time Skyline 777 reaches Trivandrum and are apprised of the situation by the Air Traffic Control Team there, its too late. They can’t move anywhere else as they are low on fuel. With no other option, the pilots decide to land at Trivandrum airport. The Air Traffic Control staff advises them to land on Runway 16. However, Vikrant insists on landing at Runway 34 which is a risky move according to the Air Traffic Control team. Nevertheless, Vikrant sticks to his plan and with great difficulty, lands on Runway 34 successfully. However, the troubles are far from over. The AAIB wants to investigate if rules were broken in landing the flight. Narayan Vedant (Amitabh Bachchan) of AAIB takes up personal interest and decides to drill Vikrant and Tanya. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
