Fight Club: Members Only is a 2006 Indian action film directed by Vicky Chopra and produced by Ravi Walia and Sohail Khan. The film features Zayed Khan, Sohail Khan, Dino Morea, Ritesh Deshmukh, Aashish Chaudhary, Dia Mirza, Amrita Arora and Suniel Shetty in the lead roles while Rahul Dev, Ashmit Patel, Yash Tonk, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Neha Dhupia are featured in crucial roles. While the film notably copies the title andlogo of the 1999 American film Fight Club, the plot has few parallels or allusions to the American film or the novel on which it is based.
The story follows four friends, Vicky (Zayed Khan), Karan (Dino Morea), Somil (Riteish Deshmukh) and Diklesh, often called Diku (Aashish Chaudhary). The four often attend clubs and drink alcohol together. One night, they witness a physical brawl, and Vicky comes up with the idea of making a "Fight Club," in which the participants will be allowed to fight physically. When Mohit (Yash Tonk), a college youngster, enters the club and takes part in a fight, he ends up beating his opponent severely to critical condition. After being stopped by Vicky, Mohit attacks him, to which response Vicky throws him out of the club. Mohit then arrives with his friend Dinesh (Ashmit Patel) to get revenge, however Mohit once again gets beaten up, this time by the whole group.
Soon after his fight with Vicky, Mohit is murdered. Vicky and his friends are blamed, and Dinesh and his brother Sandy (Rahul Dev) plan to kill all the group of the Fight Club owners when they hear about this. However, the Club is raided and shut down by the police. Soon enough, Mohit's older brother, Anna (Sunil Shetty) finds out about this incident, and plans to avenge Mohit with his whole crew. In response, the four friends hire Vicky's former college rival Sameer (Sohail Khan) as a bouncer. Vicky develops a romantic relationship with Anu (Dia Mirza), Karan's younger sister, and Karan falls in love with his neighbour Sonali (Amrita Arora). As the friends get a phone call they realize that Anna has captured Somil and Dikku. Karan and Sameer rush to save them, but beaten in a fight with Sandy and Dinesh. Vicky then arrives to help his friends and also gets knocked down. Somil then realizes that Dinesh was the one who killed Mohit with a small dagger when Dinesh tries to kill Somil with the same weapon, but Anna saves Somil and kills Dinesh. Sandy is left devastated as Anna, Vicky, Sameer, Somil, Karan and Dikku go back to the bar. Ultimately, Anna befriends the four and the Fight Club is converted into a regular nightclub.
