Chander lives with his advocate father Dilip Dev Kapoor, while Pooja lives in a wealthy but stressful family with her alcoholic father, her Dai Maa, and a self-senile mother.
Pooja’s parents, unfortunately, want her to marry someone of their choosing, which throws Chander against them. Pooja goes missing one day, and the police, led by a belligerent inspector Mathur, arrest Chander for kidnapping her, much to his surprise. Then Chander gets away from the cops and goes on a manhunt for Pooja. This movie was completed with a budget of Rupees 9 Crore and it earned Rupees 81.68 Crore to date.
