Saahil (Bobby Deol) is framed for the murder of his stepfather, the Governor (Raj Babbar). Saahil hated his stepfather and had even tried to kill him a few days earlier when Papaji tried to force Beta to get engaged to Sheetal
(Manisha) at Saahil's birthday party. Saahil loves only Eesha (Kajol), his childhood buddy from whom he had been separated for eons. Nevertheless, the party's guests have no problem assuring the court that Saahil did indeed kill his father because of the earlier incident they witnessed. Even Saahil's mom
(Priya Tendulkar) testifies against him. She had stopped him from attacking the Governor at the party, and she also saw him with his hand on the dagger after Saahil discovered the body. (When will the heroes learn not to touch a knife in the body of a dead person? You're being framed, stupid!!)
So Saahil goes off to jail, is involved in some fisticuffs and escapes through the toilet drain, which is steps from the sea. (You gotta see it to believe it.) Then he begins his search to find the real killer and clear his name. On his trail is an oft-suspended
'karak' Inspector (Om Puri) and his sidekicks (Sadashiv Amprapurkar and Ashok
You're wondering... how is Saahil going to find the real killer? Who are the possible suspects? Literally everyone folks! The film is sandwiched by a long list of famous screen villains, and they were all involved in trying to coax the deceased Governor to accept/reject a foreign contract deal before his death. Plus, there are also the Governor's other contacts and Saahil's other relatives who could have done the gruesome deed.
