Plot[edit]

Inspector Abhay Rathod (Sunil Shetty) is an honest and diligent police inspector employed with the Bombay police. He is assigned the case of racketeer and criminal don, Shekhar Mohan (Ajay Devgn). Abhay successfully entraps and arrests him, and has him sentenced to a long jail term. Years later, Abhay is the Assistant Commissioner of Police, a happy family man with his wife (Priyanka Chopra) and son Chirag (Parth Dave). Shekhar Mohan completed his jail term and is looking to seek vengeance against Abhay. He does so by kidnapping Chirag and taking him along with him. The objective for the kidnapping was to trace his lost son, whose information he feels, is with Abhay. After several attempts to get the answer, Shekhar tricks Abhay by making him feel that he has killed Chirag. Abhay's wife, feeling Chirag is killed, informs Shekhar that Chirag is his son. Shekhar is wonder struck and tries to get Chirag's affection and love. Shekhar finds out that Chirag loves racing and takes him on various race courses where the child is thrilled to watch fast sport cars, and soon starts a friendship with "Uncle" Shekhar. But, with Abhay and the police closing in fast, will Shekhar and Chirag be able to maintain their friendship?
