Where did you watch this movie?

Filled with hilarious fun and dangerous action, this fast-paced thriller revolves around the fluctuating fortunes of two men often diametrically opposed characters, who just happen to look identically alike – Jai and Vijay. Jai is an ace gambler, who has never lost in his life. He is recruited by a cunning gangster, Nath to con the extremely wealthy by winning over their trust. As Jai becomes more successful, the police entrust police inspector Vijay with the task of apprehending Jai. Hilarious complications emerge because both men look identical and are constantly being mistaken for the other. The comedy of errors turns serious when Nath is revealed to have exposed top-secret military knowledge to criminals. With the blueprints of a laser weapon that can hit any targets within 50 miles in the wrong hands, it is up to the two lookalikes to save the country. Will they succeed?
