He falls for rich girl Pooja (Urmila Matondkar), and manages to win her heart. Trouble comes when Pooja's father Prakash (Anupam Kher) mistakes Raja for Rocky (also Akshay Kumar), a ruthless and merciless criminal who blackmails people for money or threatens to kill them, who is a lookalike of Raja. Prakash, who is on Rocky's payroll, asks Raja for help, so Raja impersonates Rocky to get his secrets and Prakash's money. But tables are turned when Rocky finds out about Raja's game. Raja wakes up and finds himself kidnapped in Rocky's mansion. He then realizes he has been drugged for the past seven days, and in these seven days, Rocky has posed as Raja and is set to marry Pooja. Raja is framed and arrested under the name of Rocky. Raja manages to escape and crashes the wedding where he tells the truth and Rocky escapes.

At the end Raja and Pooja gets married.

SoundtrackEdit

The soundtrack has music by Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen. All the songs were extremely popular but the album was considered disappointing since it was his released right after Dil To Pagal Hai.

The film's release delayed several months due to expletive contents in one of the songs. The film's producer, lyricist and Super Cassettes got notices from the Supreme Court asking for the removal of the contents, which the court referred to as "Irrelevant use of vulgar, indecent, lewd and coarse language in films, especially in the present film where the expletive has been hurled at a policeman, only serves the purpose of corrupting the public morals."
