Rahul Malhotra (Aamir Khan) is a confident and successful man in a long-term relationship, leading a comfortable and carefree life.
Then, in a tragic twist of fate his sister and brother-in-law die leaving him with the complete responsibility of maintaining their business along with being the guardian of their children; two sons and a daughter.
With the burden of his new commitments weighing heavily upon him, he is further flummoxed when he finds the business in a state of complete chaos under the 'Japanese' trained Manager, Bhagwati Prasad Mishra (Mushtaq Khan), and on the verge of bankruptcy.
To add to his woes his niece and nephews are seemingly uncontrollable brats. His efforts to make sense of the business are met with even more challenges; and his desperate attempts to find a suitable nanny are frustrated with one nanny after another quitting after being subjected to abuse at the hands of the three children.
One day the children sneak out to a fair, and meet with runaway, Vaijanti Iyer (Juhi Chawla), who has refused to marry the man of her father's choice. The children seem to find a kindred spirit in Vaijanti, quickly bond with her and sneak her into Rahul's house.
How will Rahul react to the newcomer, overwhelmed as he is with the sequence of events that already have his life spiraling out of control? Can Rahul find it within himself to successfully juggle his own life and his love-life with Maya (Navneet Nishan), while managing the business and caring for the children?
