Subhash (Paresh Rawal) has spent the lost 10 years unsuccessfully trying to get acting parts in films. He makes ends meet by his uncanny ability to think on his feet committing small time cons on unsuspecting victims. One night he saves a man's life, to do so he puts his own at risk. He accompanies the injured man back home. Subhash is awestruck at the grandeur and affluence of Mr. Adenwalla (Naseeruddin Shah). Soon enough Subhash is hired by the grateful Adenwalla as his driver. The wife Mallika Adenwalla (Neha Dhupia) resents Subhash for his proximity to her husband and senses this man taking advantage of her husband. On the other hand, Adenwalla, driven to the point of insanity by his money hungry wife decides to fake the ultimate revenge. He puts his wife in a catch 22 situation by throwing down a challenge. Subhash recognizes this as an opportunity to rid himself of a life time of middle class mediocrity and poverty. He collaborates with Mallika to acquire all the money and property. Helping them in this devious plan are the family lawyer (Boman Irani) and the caretaker (Tara Sharma). Several thrilling situations arise in their plan, ranging from false alibis, double-crossing, phony kidnappings to hidden agendas which wreck havoc all around. How the scheming Subhash gets trapped in his own lies and how he finally manages to save his skin, forms the crux of the story.
