'Duplicate' is a commercial entertainer that essentially is a contradictory and contracting tale of two men, one good and one bad, but co-incidentally have the same face.
Babloo (Shah Rukh Khan) is basically a day dreamer and aspires to be Chef of International repute. He is forever day dreaming of cooking at 5-Star establishments. Manu Dada (Shah Rukh Khan) on the other hand is a ruthless criminal on the run.
Babloo is in love with Sonia (Juhi Chawla) who is the Food and Beverage Manager of an up market hotel. She is always a part of his dreams. He wishes to take her abroad and settle down. Manu romances with a night club cabaret dancer Lily (Sonali Bendre). Together they've migrated from overseas and entered the world of crime in India.
Babloo and Manu keep crossing paths, till they converge with a bang, after which Manu holds the innocent Babloo ransom and continues his violent escapades using Babloo's name. Babloo eventually retaliates and seeks revenge.
The film ends on a happy note with the realization of Babloo's dreams. He finally becomes a Chef of International fame.
