The trailer opens with Pankaj Tripathi's Atal Bihari Vajpayee watching a film and telling his friend that the public believes what is shown to them. Next moment, Vajpayee is seen dealing with criticism and violence as a person talks about Mahatma Gandhi's killer, Nathuram Godse, having spent some days as part of the RSS, of which Vajpayee was also a part. He says that the RSS is declared communal by some and the word is spread that a Hindu party can be a danger for the country.

The Main Atal Hoon trailer then moves on to show how Atal Bihari Vajpayee stood up against Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi during the Emergency. It is followed by a glimpse of late President Abdul Kalam who is seen congratulating Pankaj's Vajpayee for the successful Pokhran nuclear test. There is also a reminder of how Vajpayee launched a bus seva between India and Pakistan and then volunteered to visit Ayodhya after the Babri Masjid demolition. The later part of the trailer shows Vajpayee and his role during the Kargil War.
