Lucky Kapoor (Fardeen Khan) lives in Australia and has no interest in taking over his father Virendra Kapoor's (Harsh Chhaya) business in India. Meanwhile, Saba Karim Shah (Feroz Khan) has a great interest in a plot of land owned by Mr. Kapoor, but Mr. Kapoor has no interest in selling. Shah thus has Mr. Kapoor killed, making it look like an accident. Jessica Periera (Celina Jaitly), a childhood sweetheart of Lucky, has proof that Mr. Kapoor's death was not an accident—but she keeps it to herself. When Karim Shah meets with Lucky to renegotiate, he finds that Lucky is willing to sell—but he also discovers that Lucky bears a striking resemblance to his own dead son. Although Karim Shah will do anything to make Lucky heir to his own wealth and properties, Lucky remains unwilling.

Janasheen was released on 28 November 2003, the same day as the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer, Kal Ho Naa Ho. Despite a good opening week, the film fell in the second week but was a hit in UP-Delhi, Nizam and Mumbai territories, while it was break-even in other areas. The movie was declared "Average" by Box Office India. Janasheen became quite popular and Feroz Khan won the IIFA award for his negative role.
