Baburao is a landlord in India, who is very near-sighted, and always in financial trouble. He has a tenant named Raja, who has not paid his rent for several months. He also has anther tenant named Shyam, who has come to the city to look for a job in his late father's place, but is unable to find employment. The three men quarrel amongst themselves frequently. Then one day, the three men get a phone call from a kidnapper named Kabira, and decide to make use of this phone call to overcome their financial problems - pretend to be the real kidnappers, increase the ransom amount, keep the incremental amount for themselves, and then give the original ransom demanded to Kabira.

Trivia:
The film was launched as Raftaar with a grand mahurat just before Kartoos (1999) was to be released and the cast at that point was Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Paresh Rawal and Karishma Kapoor. Steven Seigal attended the mahurat and mentioned that he was going to do a cameo in the movie.

Sanjay Dutt had to leave the film because he had to attended court everyday and only could do night scenes. He told Firoz Nadiawala that after completing Kartoos (1999) he could not do any film for a short period, so he suggested that Sunil Shetty should take his place in the film.

Karisma Kapoor was offered the lead role, but turned it down because she did not find the role substantial enough.

The song "Mujhse milti hai..." filmed on Akshay Kumar and Rambha, whose promos were aired on television, was deleted from the final cut of the movie.
