Following India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in 2019, “Pathan” comes across as a gripping spy thriller with geopolitical implications. The story begins with the consequences of this political move affecting cancer-stricken Pakistani Army General Qadir (Manish Wadhwa), who is driven by a desire for revenge against India. Given a grim prognosis of three years to live, Kadir makes a sinister deal with Jim (John Abraham), the mysterious leader of “Outfit X”, a secret private terrorist organization.

Simultaneously, the film introduces Pathaan (Shah Rukh Khan), a former RAW agent, and his senior officer Nandini Grewal (Dimple Kapadia). In response to evolving security threats, they establish the “Joint Operations and Covert Research” (JOCR) unit, designed to recruit former RAW agents forced into retirement due to trauma or injury. The team comprises skilled individuals, including Shweta Bajaj (Ekta Kaul), a hacker; Raza (Shaji Choudhary); Joseph Mathews (Diganta Hazarika), a sniper; Amol (Aakash Bhatija); and Rishi Arya (Viraf Patel), an intelligence analyst.

With the approval of RAW joint secretary Colonel Sunil Luthra (Ashutosh Rana), Pathaan and his team embark on a mission to Dubai to thwart Outfit X’s plans of attacking the President of India at a scientific conference. However, they soon realize that the true objective is the kidnapping of two scientists, Dr. Farooqui (Prem Jhangiani) and Dr. Sahani (Prakash Belawadi). The plot thickens as Outfit X misleads the Indian agencies, prompting Pathaan to change course and prioritize the rescue of the kidnapped scientists.

Tragically, the mission takes a toll with the loss of Rishi during a confrontation with Jim’s forces. In a debriefing session, Colonel Luthra unveils Jim’s unexpected connection to RAW, revealing him as a former agent and Kabir Dhaliwal’s partner. Jim, previously awarded the Vir Puraskar for bravery after a mission gone awry in Somalia, had faked his death as an act of vengeance against the agency and the country for failing to save his family from terrorists.

Amidst the escalating tension, Pathaan decodes the mysterious code-word “Raktbeej” and traces it to Moscow. This revelation sets the stage for an intriguing twist as he encounters Rubina “Rubai” Mohsin (Deepika Padukone), a Pakistani doctor with a hidden past. Despite initial distrust, Pathaan and Rubai form an alliance to investigate the enigmatic Raktbeej. As they delve into the mission, their relationship evolves into a complex blend of romance, trust, and betrayal.

Their journey takes a dark turn when Rubai, under Jim’s influence, betrays Pathan. Captured by Jim’s men in Spain, Pathan learns the true nature of the Raktabeej and the extent of Jim’s manipulations. However, Rubai turns against Jim’s forces, rescues Pathan, and reveals vital information about Raktabeej’s location.

The story shifts to Siberia, where the world’s most secure safe is Raktabeej. The stakes rise when Pathan and Rubai set out on a dangerous mission to steal a sphere containing the mutated smallpox virus. However, their success is short-lived as Rubai, under Jim’s influence, betrays Pathan once again, leading to her capture by the Russian authorities.

The story takes a three-year leap, revealing Pathan’s unexpected savior in the form of Avinash “Tiger” Singh Rathore (Salman Khan). Resuming his search for justice, Pathan goes to Africa, tracks down Jim’s henchman Rafe (Rajat Kaul) and pursues Rubai relentlessly. The intensity of the film increases as the characters face the increasing threat of a bloodbath and Jim’s insidious plans.

The climax is the pinnacle of action, suspense, and moral reckoning. Pathan and Rubai join forces to thwart Jim’s destructive intentions. Qadir died at the hands of Rubai, symbolizing the complex web of alliances and betrayals. Pathan, equipped with a jet-pack, engages in a high-stakes showdown with Jim, resulting in a brutal confrontation that determines the fate of millions.

The film ends with the resolution of the Raktabeej crisis, highlighting the sacrifices made to protect the nation. Pathan’s reinstatement in RAW and his appointment as chief of JOCR signal a return to order. Nandini was posthumously awarded the gallantry award for her bravery, reflecting the value of duty and the unwavering commitment of those involved in covert operations.

A mid-credits scene offers a glimpse of the future as Pathan and Tiger consider their roles in the ongoing battle against the threats. The narrative ends with a note of uncertainty, suggesting that the fight against espionage and terrorism remains an ongoing conflict, setting the stage for potential successors and future challenges in the clandestine world of “Pathan”.
