One day, Bablu’s world turns upside down. He has turned from a chef to a wanted criminal on the run in the blink of an eye, all because of Manu and their identical faces. Bablu now has to prove his innocence and find Manu so that he can get his life back.



Bablu (Shah Rukh Khan) has just landed his dream job, as a head chef of a reputable restaurant. A simpleton and an honest man, Bablu falls in love with Sonia (Juhi Chawla), the vivacious manager of the same hotel. Sonia too returns his affections and for a while they find bliss in each other’s company. Meanwhile, Manu, a notorious and dangerous criminal has escaped from prison with revenge on his mind. Manu looks exactly like Bablu but doesn’t know it yet. The police come across Bablu and Sonia having lunch at a restaurant and arrest him mistaking him for Manu. Manu is ecstatic with this turn of events and decides to exploit it further. He decides to kill Bablu so that he can live his life and escape all his punishments for his crimes. Bablu on the other hand is trying hard to convince the police of his true identity, all but in vain. Even the women in their life: Sonia, Bablu’s mother (Farida Jalal) and Manu’s girlfriend Lily (Sonali Bendre) can’t distinguish between the two. Ultimately, Manu and Bablu face each other in a final confrontation. Will Bablu be able to prove his innocence before it’s too late?
