Don Quixote (Amrish Puri) is a don who plans on selling India in a widely publicized auction. His plan is simple — kidnap the president (Anupam Kher), replace him with a lookalike (also Anupam Kher), throw a scare and "force" the fake president to sell India. Hero (Shahrukh Khan) is new to Mumbai and broke. Miss India (Deepa Sahi) is busy living it up the night she meets Hero. They meet and decide to spend the night entertaining each other in any way possible — joking, dancing or doing anything they can think of. Meanwhile, Don Quixote's son Prince (Javed Jaffrey) has set his eyes on Miss India, who thwarts all his overtures. The night turns out to be an adventurous one for Hero and Miss India.
In some dreamscapes, the surrealistic cinematography ranges from mesmerizing to almost hypnotic and one of the chase sequences is extremely well crafted. But all the cliquish brilliance and isolated directorial excellence is lamentably sparse
