Plot[edit]

Three men meet their bad luck for an unknown reason. Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) proposes to his girlfriend Riya (Tripti Dimri) is rejected by her father for "he can't get his daughter married to such a person", leaving Arjun frustrated and upset. Jaagavar Chaudhary (Sunny Deol) is married to Sunita (Sonali Kulkarni). He is preparing his younger sister Anjali's engagement ceremony when he's told that the fiancé and his family have changed their mind of engaging with Anjali for "they cannot accept an alliance with such a shameful family". Vinay Kumar Sharma (Bobby Deol) is a primary teacher whose wife Suraj Mukhi (Samikssha Batnagar) suddenly leaves him and asks for divorce for she cannot forgive his "irresponsible deeds".

The three confused and upset men one day coincidentally meet somewhere on a bridge when they come across a bus that has a poster of their photos, promoting vasectomy, at the back. They come to know that this poster is the reason they are defamed as none of them had that operation and their photos were used without their permission. They decide to find out who is behind it and solve it.

They later find that two government employees from the Health Department, the organizers of that promotion, are responsible for the incident. They find the two employees and ask them to remove all the posters in the city with their unauthorized photos and make a public apology and demand compensation. The two agree but request time to do that.

During the given days, the two don't try to fulfill their promise, but instead ask their senior to help, and their senior, the Health Minister (Murali Sharma) does not try to solve it but to cover it up. At the deadline date, the three can't find the two government employees to fulfill their promise so they turn to their superior for help, who refuses to meet them. The three desperate men then decide to sue the Health Department.

They fail the case because the Health Department use a lot of fake evidence including faked documents showing that they willingly finished the operation and asked to post their photos. But the incident goes viral with help of a local reporter (Raashul Tandon) and they are gaining people's support.

During a press conference suggested by the same reporter, angered Arjun announces that they will protest naked if the authority don't give them justice, drawing attention of greater public to this incident.

They start their naked protest at the promised day with only underpants, and people supporting them also uploaded videos of them naked supporting the three's request. The incident finally reaches the Chief Minister, who rushes to the scene to control the situation. The Chief Minister, knowing all the truth behind it, announces that the three are innocent and the Health Department is responsible for the incident and the government will give them compensation.

Riya's father, convinced of Arjun's innocence and moved by his courage, agrees his proposal. Anjali's fiancé agrees to marry her. Vinay's wife returns to him too.
