Prakash (Saif Ali Khan) is a handsome gold digger who thinks he has made it when he woos and subsequently marries Sapna (Sonali Bendre) , only daughter of a rich businessman Mr. Chopra (Dalip Tahil) . However his euphoria is short-lived when he learns that his father-in-law disapproves of him immensely and won't let him make his mark in the business . Finally , Prakash asks Mr.Chopra for some money to start a business of his own but Mr. Chopra refuses . One night , two masked men try to rob Prakash and he places a plan before the duo : they will kidnap Sapna and demand ransom from Mr. Chopra , which will be equally shared between Prakash and the two kidnappers - Rahul (Fardeen Khan) and Harry (Aftab Shivdasani) . Rahul and Harry have a little secret of their own : they are not professional criminals as they pretend to be . Rahul is an unemployed graduate , while Harry is a loafer . Rahul is in love with his landlord's daughter Anjali (Twinkle Khanna) and needs the money to convince her father for their marriage .
