The film opens with a handicapped college student, Raj (Akshay Kumar), meeting a firecracker of a girl, Kajal (Lara Dutta). Raj and Kajal share a common interest in model airplanes, and get along like a house on fire. Kajal helps Raj overcome his handicap in true Forest Gump-style, and soon Raj finds himself in love with Kajal. Raj gets an invitation from the Indian Air Force to join, and he accepts; he wants to fly his ladylove across the world one day. Unfortunately, by the time Raj makes it back from the academy, Kajal is set to marry a hot-shot businessman named Karan (Aman Verma). Raj is heartbroken, but tries to live his life happily as Kajal tells him to.
Years later we find Raj in South Africa, undergoing some sort of special training in the air force that requires him to sit around in luxurious foreign countries. Here he meets drop-dead-gorgeous Jiya (Priyanka Chopra).
After some initial reluctance from Raj, the two hit it off. When they plan to get married, however, we find out that Jiyaâ€™s brother is none other than the businessman Karan himself. The usual high-drama and intrigue seasoned with traditional Indian values follows.
