Why Jim wanted revenge from RAW in Pathaan? I’m sure while watching Pathaan; you might have wondered what motivated John Abhraham’s character Jim to take revenge on RAW and Indian Government.
The film begins with the aftermath of the abolition of article 370, where the Indian Government granted Jammu and Kashmir a special status.
This decision resulted in General Qadir hiring a group of mercenaries called Outfit X, who especially worked for money and power.
The leader of Outfit X was Jim, who earlier had worked as a spy agent in RAW but later went rogue after a terrorist group killed his wife in a foreign land.
In the film, Jim kidnaps the scientist to develop a biological weapon which could wipe out a city in a couple of days.
So what motivated Jim to take his revenge? Well, let us find the answers below.
Why Jim wanted revenge from RAW in Pathaan?
Jim wanted to take revenge on Indian Government and RAW because when the terrorist organization kidnapped him and his wife, they tried to negotiate terms with RAW.
The terrorist group wanted a ransom of 10 crores in exchange for Jim’s wife and his life, but RAW and Indian Government at that time didn’t negotiate the terms with the Terrorist group and also stated that Jim didn’t belong to their country.
Colonel Luthra, who was leading the negotiation from RAW, stated the terrorist group could do whatever they wanted to do with him.
Therefore, the terrorist group killed Jim’s pregnant wife in front of his own eyes and made him watch.
Later on, Jim was freed by some other group of mercenaries from the terrorists and thereafter, he created Outfit X, an organization that doesn’t work for any country.
They only work for money, but Jim always hated RAW and Indian Government for not helping him and his wife when he needed them the most.
Therefore when General Qadir reached out to Jim to take revenge on Indian Government for Article 370, Jim thought this would be the best time to get his revenge on the Indian Government and RAW.
Hence he first kidnapped the Indian scientist Dr Sahani from Dubai and then got his hands on the smallpox virus code-named Rakht Beej from Russia.
He mutated the virus and designed it inside a metal orb so that it could destroy a city in a couple of days.
Jim wanted to attack India with Rakht Beej, but Pathaan managed to save his country.
