Sunny Deol plays a Collector of a small city in UP, who fights corruption and injustice. The story is driven by love and its strength. It is a story about change, not revenge.
Sabharwal (Ravi Kishan) is on a roll, committing a series of frauds, all in the garb of a successful business entrepreneur. But little does he know that one of his misdoings has created a huge impact on the lives of 4 poor sods: Mrs. Baweja (Dolly Ahluwalia), Sukhi (Tusshar Kapoor), Mintoo Hasan (Vinay Pathak) and Ballu (Ranvir Shorey), which has grown into an enormous wave of a need for vengeance.
After the death of Mr. Baweja due to a cardiac arrest after being framed in a bank fraud and Saira, his assistant being put behind bars, Mrs. Baweja takes the situation into her hands. They decide to no longer remain victims to the situation by living on scrawny jobs and meager monies but instead plot revenge against Sabharwal in the best way possible. The good-hearted underdog has to become a 'little BAD' to fight the 'very BAD'.
"To dethrone the king is no mean task."
But a lot needs to happen before that: Sukhi finds love in Manpreet (Vishakha Singh) who has to get Sabharwal to twirl to her tunes; Mintoo's 'Modern Catering' has to offer more than just 'Quantity and Quality' and Ballu's cunning ways need to go through the litmus test.
A series of cons - enthralling, amusing and needless to say, entertaining to the core. At the end of it all Happy Ending it is... but all you will want to say is 'Bajatey Raho'!!!
