Plot

Kamal Kishore Khosla (Anupam Kher) is a middle class man living in New Delhi. He is a simple man with simple tastes. The film begins with a dream sequence where Khosla sees his death, the irony being that nobody really cares about his demise; instead his children & neighbours are more occupied with their materialistic needs. Waking up from this nightmare Khosla goes to visit a site where he has purchased a plot of residential land to build a house. He is accompanied by his family, comprising of wife, elder son Balwant a.k.a. Bunty (Ranvir Shorey), younger son Chironji Lal a.k.a. Cherry (Parvin Dabas)(who does not like his name, and wishes to change it), and his daughter. Kamal Kishore has invested all of his savings (Rs. 3 Million) into buying the plot - yet Cherry is not too interested in his father's future plans of settling together in the new house. He is a software engineer and although a source of pride for his father, he finds his current lifestyle too drab, and has planned to shift to the US by taking up a job there. However, he has not let his family in on his plans. The only two people Cherry discusses his plan with are Asif Iqbal (Vinay Pathak), the agent helping him with his Visa formalities, and Cherry's close friend Meghna (Tara Sharma) who has very visible romantic interest in him (one which he does not reciprocate) and feels hurt and angered by his choice.

Just when Cherry reveals his migration plans to his family, who are all disturbed by it, during a routine family visit to their land, they find the plot encroached upon by someone. Probing further reveals that the squatters are part of a property usurping nexus headed by the corrupt and powerful Kishan Khurana (Boman Irani). Upon being urged so by the property dealer who had facilitated the purchase of the plot, Kamal Kishore and Bunty visit Khurana. Khurana places before them, a demand for Rs. 15 lacs (1.5 million) to vacate the plot, an amount which Khosla neither has nor agrees to pay. Kamal Kishore appeals to various authorities and agencies, including the police, lawyers, political parties, NGOs and social activists for help. None of them offers more than to get the amount demanded by Khurana reduced by a few lacs, in exchange for a hefty commission for mediating, of course.

Spurred by his father's helplessness, Bunty gets help from a gang of local strongmen (pahalwans) who demolish the boundary walls built by Khuran's men and take possession of the plot back by force. This success is short-lived, however, as the corrupt Khurana has the police in his pocket and Kamal Kishore is arrested. Released at Khurana's guileful behest after spending a day in the police lock-up, Khosla's will is broken, and pride battered. Cherry discusses the grim situation with Asif Iqbal who is revealed to have been an old parter of Khurana's, whom Khurana had cheated, usurping Asif's own ancestral land. Asif offers to help the Khosla family and the Khoslas along with a group of Meghna's friends, turn the tables on Khurana and beat him at his own game, duping him Rs. 3.5 million in cash. From that money, Kamal Kishore pays a renegotiated 12 lacs to Khurana and gets possession of his plot back, and the remaining spoils are split between the Khoslas, Asif and Meghna's friends.

The turmoil suffered throughout by the family and the victory of their efforts stirs emotions that bring Cherry close to both Meghna, and his family. Cherry scraps his plans of migrating to the USA, marries Meghna and settles with his family in their new abode built on their plot. As an additional favour, his father allows him to change his name from Chironji Lal to Chirag. As for Khurana, he is left looking bitter, having finally tasted his own medicine.
