At the center of the film are two characters Chandu (Vivek Oberoi) and Mallik (Ajay Devgan). Chandu aka Chandrakant is a street pauper who lives in a dingy and congested kholi somewhere in the slums of Mumbai.

Chandu?s life undergoes a drastic change after Mallik recruits him to look after his nefarious deals. With the money earned from crime Chandu moves from his claustrophobic shanty into an opulent and spacious bungalow along with his mother (Seema Biswas). Soon Chandu becomes Mallik?s trusted and favorite sidekick. Together they start a company to further extend their activities and excel in the underworld. Both of them are deadly, fearless and completely callous about death. They wouldn?t blink an eye before shooting their enemies point blank.

As a result the duo shifts their base to Hong Kong and move there with their ladyloves (played by Manisha Koirala and Antara Mali respectively). They continue to operate their company from afar through their henchmen. An unexpected turn comes in the story after a misunderstanding crop up between Mallik and Chandu and turns them into arch foes. Each one begins to stalk the other for his life.
