Plot[edit]

Popular Indian leading man Amitabh Bachchan stars in Hera Pheri, a campy Bollywood musical melodrama about faded friendships and family secrets. Best friends Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) and Ajay (Vinod Khanna) sever their relationship when Vijay discovers that his father's murderer may be Ajay's own long-lost father, setting into motion a bloody saga of familial revenge that involves a maniacally insane mother and a motley assortment of badly disguised villains.

The film starts with a fight between Vijay and Ajay in an Irani hotel. Later it comes to know that they both are con men and the fight was their trick for money.
