"Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal" is a story of that great optimistic trait - hope. The characters in this drama fight the battle of hope through relationships, pride and their dreams. Southall United is an all Asian football club going through a major crisis. The team has no stars, no sponsors, no spectators and most importantly, no coach. Yet, it nurtures the hope that it will win the cup this time. The head of the city council, Anne, collaborates with Johnny Patel, a sports commentator, to acquire the large tract of land that is with the club. Together they highlight the club's lackluster performance and threaten to have the land taken from them, unless things change. Their biggest hope? That the team will lose, yet again. Sir Devi Dhariwal, owner of the club, hopes to save the land from the greed of Anne and Johnny Patel. Shaan (Arshad Warsi), the captain of Southall United, plays the one last card. He hopes to bring in a celebrated ex-player to coach them. And then there is Sunny Bhasin (John Abraham) who hopes to become a member of a top team and play first division football - a dream every British footballer yearns to achieve.
