Prithvi (Sunil Shetty), a famous photographer, and Neha (Shilpa Shetty) fall in love and soon get married. Prithvi and Neha both fly to America for their honeymoon, but when Neha uses the bathroom at a restaurant, she gets kidnapped. Prithvi is very scared and would do anything to get Neha back. He takes the help of Lucky (Shweta Menon). When Prithvi was near a hospital he finds Neha, but she has fainted, but once she wakes up she does not recognize Prithvi. The girl he found was in fact a duplicate of Neha, whose name was Rashmi. Neha was threatened by her kidnapper (Faraaz Khan) as she should prove him as innocent for a murder case. Prithvi and Rashmi rush to the court and say that he is not innocent and has gotten a duplicate of the girl. Prithvi finds Neha and they both live happily ever after.


"Jis Ghadi Tujhko Tere", Anuradha's version was very popular, but this song is available only on the audio track, not in the movie. "Een Meen Sade Teen" is partly lifted from Rendezvous 2' by Jeanne Mitchell Jarre.
