They decide to blackmail the crooks into sharing the loot with them, little realizing that their mischief is going to trigger a chain of unpredictable events involving a bunch of crazy characters. Soon these girls face unpleasant secrets and inescapable danger. Now, they have no choice but to plan their revenge as well as get their Paisa Vasool.
