Rakesh Roshan's 'Karan Arjun' is about faith and reincarnation. Durga's (Rakhee Gulzar) sons, Karan (Salman Khan) and Arjun (Shah Rukh Khan) are murdered by Dhurjan Singh (Amrish Puri). When Durga's pleas to bring Karan Arjun back to life are heard by the Goddess Kali, the two brothers are reborn in different families. Karan as Ajay, grows up to be a boxer and goes to work for Saxena (Ranjeet), Dhurjan Singh's partner in crime. Arjun as Vijay, grows up to work with horses and falls in love with Sonia (Kajol), Saxena's daughter and Dhurjan Singh's soon to be daughter-in-law. By divine intervention Ajay and Vijay realize they are Karan Arjun, and return to their mother Durga in 'Malakhera' to take revenge upon Dhurjan Singh. Will Karan and Arjun succeed this time in defeating Dhurjan Singh?
