Two boys are born on the same day. One is Rahul Mehta (Chandrachur Singh), born with a silver spoon in his mouth to a rich family in England, another is Balu (Arshad Warsi), born in a middle class Brahmin family somewhere in Mumbai. Both grow up until they are destined to exchange their places on their 22nd birthday.
Rahul Mehta's parents had died when he was young and he lives with his grandfather Shambunath Mehta (Pran). He wants to visit India to see his parents' graves though his grandfather doesen't want him to go as he is afraid Rahul may also fall in love and ruin himself like his parents did. With much persuasion, he comes to India and manages to escape his guardians, Ram Singh (Bal Dhuri) and detective Mirchandani (Manoj Pahwa) from the airport and catches a taxi.
The driver of the taxi is none other than Balu, who, not knowing Rahul's true identity, keeps cursing the rich guy for being born on the same day as Balu, but enjoying the wealthy life. Later, Rahul discloses his identity and Balu feels ashamed, but both become good friends.
Rahul does not want to go back to his wealth-ridden world, so he asks Balu to take his place and let him take Balu's place. So Rahul becomes the taxi driver and informs Ram Singh that someone would be coming to them in his place. Balu reaches the hotel where Rahul was supposed to be staying. Ram Singh has a tough time grooming Balu to behave like a rich guy.
Rahul goes to Balu's place where he finds Balu's sister Paro (Priya Gill) and falls in love with her. Balu, while attending a meeting with one V.P.Mathur (Suresh Malhotra), who is the caretaker of Mehta Industries in India, meets V.P. Mathur's daughter Pooja (Simran) and falls in love with her.
Mehta industries is in shambles because of corrupt Mathur managers. The union leader Dattabhau (A.K. Hangal) explains this to Balu (disguised as Rahul). Balu takes care of this and reopens the company, declaring equal profit sharing among labourers.
At the Shastri's place, Paro's father P.V.Shastri (K.D. Chandran) comes to know of Rahul and Paro's love affair but is raged since Rahul is a Christian. Balu comes into the picture and pacifies the situation. Rahul decides to turn into a Brahmin so that he can marry Paro.
Rahul's grandfather, Shambhunath, who is in England, comes to know of all this happening with Rahul and hence comes to India to control the situation. However, since the control of Mehta Industries has gone out of the Mathurs' hand, they decide to kill Rahul and Shambhunath. Rahul and Balu fight to save Shambhuath from the gangster hired by the Mathurs to kill Shambhunath
