When the Egyptian ambassador to India and his family are kidnapped by an evil billionaire, the Egyptian government is pressed to act quickly to rescue them and return them to Egypt. The government assigns a special forces squad to the mission, and they travel to India to free the ambassador and his family. After arrival, however, it becomes clear that the hired special forces squad is in fact a band of blundering musicians wrongly selected for the task. Led by true special forces agents, the eccentric group seeks to free the ambassador and his family. Introduction by Samhita Sunya (UVA)
