In 'Baghban', Raj Malhotra (Amitabh Bachchan) and wife Pooja (Hema Malini) have four sons. The sons have settled down professionally and are quite independent.
However, when Raj Malhotra retires, none of his children want to be burdened with the responsibility of taking care of their parents. Strangely, it is the adopted son Alok (Salman Khan) who proves to be the most kind hearted of them all.
Their own sons, whose every need and whim they fulfilled, often with little regard to their own future, end up treating them with disdain.

What does the future have in store for the penniless and heartbroken couple? Will Raj and Pooja's sons learn the folly of their ways and turn over a new leaf?
