Ashok Bansal (Jackie Shroff) has a traumatic childhood which teaches him that money matters most to people, even more than their kids. Ashok starts hating poor people & starts working hard to get out of poverty. In the process of acquiring wealth, he neglects his family consisting of his younger brother Anil (Shahrukh Khan) and sister Suneeta (Nivedita Saraf). He gets Suneeta married to a man who turns out to be a golddigger whereas she is in love with Ashok's manager (Vivek Vaswani). Anil goes against his brother’s highhanded ways and marries Kavita (Nagma) opting to leave the house.
Ashok’s life changes forever when Munna (Pooja Ruparel) enters his life, having run away from an orphanage where the warden ill-treats the children. She initially creates havoc in Ashok’s life but when he returns her to the orphanage, he realizes that he misses her. Realizing the importance of family, he decides to adopt her and mend fences with his own family. He frees his sister from her abusive husband and brings her back home.
