Bangkok-based Janardhan "Johnny" Arora (Kunal Khemu) is called in by his conniving boss Ramona Bakshi (Manasi Scott) where she accuses him of cheating and gives him a chance to redeem himself by going to Pattaya on a vacation. Whilst there, he learns from Ramona's right-hand man Mr. Nobody (Aseem Merchant) that she sent him to murder a girl named Tanya Malik (Zoa Morani) who appears to pose some threat to Ramona. Although intent on saving his job, the moment he sets his sight on the beautiful Tanya, he is drawn into a state of confusion as to whether he should save the innocent girl's life or his job. However, a genie Jinn (Vikram Bhatt) appears to help him and gives him an offer to live 2 different lives of his own, where one life will be completely isolated from another. As he accepts this offer, Johnny finds himself at the head of a conspiracy and several events unfolding fast.

Subhash K. Jha rated the film one and half stars out of five, saying, "Not that Bhaag Johnny was ever meant to be a dud. It must have sounded promising on paper, a crime thriller with a twist to the telling."
The film grossed under ₹1 crore (US$140,000) in its first weekend. Kunal Khemu was praised by the critics and the audience as well for convincingly pulling off both Positive and Negative Character at the same time.
