Pritam (Mithun Chakraborty), an elderly school-bus driver has 3 good-for-nothing sons – the group leader Madhav (Arshad Warsi), the poetic idiot Laxman (Kunal Khemu) and the innocent mute Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor). The 3 men are always up to some trouble or the other and most of them are scams. Then, there is the elderly Geeta (Ratna Pathak), who has 2 sons – the strong but kind leader Gopal (Ajay Devgan) and the stammering Lakshman (Shreyas Talpade). These 2 men run a water sports stall on the beach. Daboo (Kareena Kapoor) is their partner and Gopal has a crush on her, which he never reveals. Gopal has the habit of twisting every finger that is pointed at Daboo.
Puppy (Johnny Lever), Dagga (Sanjai Mishra) and Teja (Vajresh Hirjee) are robbers and are on the run after stealing a queen’s diamond necklace. The police have followed them to Goa. Puppy, the don suffers from short-term amnesia, often and hides the jewelry in Pritam’s house. After the loss of memory this time, he sends the police behind Dagga and Teja. In the next shot, Geeta’s sons and Daboo are seen enjoying themselves. This song is heard in the background. Pritam’s sons also enjoy this song elsewhere, with nobody the wiser.
