The film was shot in Mumbai's Film City and in the villages of Rajasthan state. Earning over 280 million (US$4.5 million), the film went to became the highest grossing film of the year. The film was declared a hit by Box Office India. It received overwhelming response from the audiences and predominately positive reviews from critics.

Ramkishan's (Alok Nath) eldest son Vivek (Mohnish Behl) is disabled in one hand, because of a childhood accident, in which he had saved his brothers Prem (Salman Khan) and Vinod (Saif Ali Khan). This disability tends to put off most marriageable girls. Mamta (Reema Lagoo) dotes on Vivek, though he is her step-son (he had lost his biological mother—Ramkishan's first wife—in infancy). While attending wedding anniversary of Ramkishan, Adarsh (Rajeev Verma) (business friend of Ramkishan) and his daughter, Sadhna (Tabu) both impressed by the warmth and solidarity of Vivek's family. They arrange a marriage between Vivek and Sadhna.
Preeti (Sonali Bendre), doctor by profession and Prem (Salman Khan), a business student, have loved each other since they were children, but their feelings remain unspoken. The family announces their engagement soon after Vivek and Sadhana's wedding reception. The fun-loving and energetic pair, Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) and Sapna (Karishma Kapoor), also fall in love and get engaged. Ramkishan now feels that he can retire from the business and let his sons take over. He decides to appoint Vivek, the most experienced of his sons, the Managing Director (MD) of his companies.
The twist to the family saga comes when Ramkishan's daughter Sangeeta (Neelam Kothari), her husband Anand (Mahesh Thakur) are outed by his elder brother Anurag from his house and business. Sapna's father Dharamraj (Sadashiv Amrapurkar) and three socialite friends of Mamta convince her that she must compel Ramkishan to divide the house and business equally among his sons, in order to avoid similar complications in her family. Troubled by Sangeeta's misfortune, Mamta believes these arguments and begins to doubt her step-son Vivek's loyalty. Sadhana and Vivek decide to go on a self-imposed exile to Rampur (the native village of Ramkishan). At Vivek's insistence, a reluctant Prem takes over as the MD of the companies. However, Prem makes it clear that he considers Vivek the real leader and himself just a deputy.
Meanwhile, the absence of Anand and Sangeeta creates a huge vacuum in Anurag's professional as well as domestic life. He realizes his mistake, and takes the initiative to call them back. With peace restored in her marital home, Sangeeta now convinces Mamta to reconcile with Vivek and Sadhna. A repentant Mamta rushes to Rampur, just when Sadhana is giving birth to a baby boy. At the end, Vivek takes charge as MD of Ramkishan's companies, meanwhile Prem and Preeti marry to each other and so do Vinod and Sapna.
