This movie is inspired by the Hollywood film Liar Liar (1997), starring Jim Carrey. The movie shares certain elements with Liar Liar, such as Govinda being a compulsive liar like Carrey's character and his son wishing that his dad would stop lying. The movie is also inspired by superhit Marathi movie Dhangad Dhinga starring Mahesh Kothare and Laxmikant Berde. Some plot is inspired from Rakesh Roshan's Kaamchor.
Coming from small-town Hoshiarpur to big city Bombay, conman and compulsive liar, Raj Malhotra (Govinda), a lawyer by profession, sets up shop with fellow lawyer, Mohan. He falls in love with Sonam (Sushmita Sen), daughter of a wealthy lawyer Tejpal. He devises a scheme to marry into this wealthy family, and he succeeds. Years later, he has a son, who wishes that his dad would stop lying; and a mistress, Tara. The son's wish comes true, and all utterances from Raj's mouth are truthful. This creates a crisis in his personal life, as he confesses about his mistress; as well as his professional life, when he starts telling the truth in court, especially with his underworld clients, who are now out to kill him.
