Starring Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Sushmita Sen (Special Appearance) and Amrish Puri, this movie has all the makings of a super hit. It is about one man who stands out in a country where the population is a billion and a few are recognized. Shivaji Rao (Anil Kapoor) is a news reporter that always gets the inside scoop on the latest happenings in the nation. He is fearless and has an unusual passion for his line of duty and life. He is also a patriot as he seeks to find out the truth behind the mind of the politicians, especially Chief Minister Balraj Chauhan (Amrish Puri). One day he finally stands up to him in front of the public and questions him on the poor condition of the country, politics and all. For an answer, Balraj Chauhun challenges Shivaji to see if he could do any better. So a bet is made where Shivaji would become CM for a day and try to improve the country on his own.
Rani Mukherjee plays the role of Manjari, a simple girl who Shivaji meets and falls in love with. She becomes the person who he trusts and goes to with all his problems. The movie, since it deals with the country as a whole, has been shot in numerous locations throughout the country to give the audience the full effect of the movie.
