Two friends. One dream. One common thread - music. What seems like an ideal friendship turns sour when one becomes more famous than another. To make things worse, the famous one also walks away with the girl the other friend loves
Mannu (Salman Khan) and Arjun (Ajay Devgan) were childhood friends. But they had little in common except their family's vague connection with music. While Arjun's life was consumed by a passionate drive to get on stage and realize his grandfather's unfulfilled dream, Mannu had little interest in his music tutor father's instruments and was content with remaining a child at heart with no higher ambition than enjoying the good things in life. But little did they know that someday music would strengthen their friendship and drive them apart.
Arjun ends up in London and works his way up from the streets to forge a band ‘London Dreams’ with Zoheb and Wasim, two brothers from Pakistan, and Priya (Asin), a music enthusiast from a conservative South Indian family.
Meanwhile, far away in Punjab, music becomes a survival tool for Mannu, who takes to playing in wedding bands in his village.
Then, Arjun does what good friends do. He brings Mannu to London to become a part of his band. But soon he regrets doing so.
Mannu, with his inherent musical gift and irreverent style of performing, catapults to stardom overnight. He becomes an instant hit with the crowds. What took Arjun years to achieve, Mannu does that in a few days.
But when Arjun loses Priya, the girl he secretly loved to Mannu, he battles his inner demons to devise a sinister strategy to destroy his best friend.
As the band goes on a three-city tour of Paris, Rome and Amsterdam, Arjun meticulously sabotages Mannu’s career and love life.
Finally, at Wembley, one of Europe’s largest stadiums, where he hopes to have his moment of glory, a rude shock awakens Arjun. At the expense of his band, his friendship and his credibility, a humbling experience teaches him the true meaning of acceptance in life.
