Ramkishen (Alok Nath) and his wife Mamta (Reema Lagoo) live with their three sons, Vivek (Mohnish Behl), Prem (Salman Khan), and vinod (Saif Ali Khan).
Prem and Vinod have sweethearts but since Vivek has a birth handicap the family has been unable to find him a suitable match. The family meets with Adarsh and his daughter Sangeeta (Rajeev Verma and Tabu), and soon Sangeeta and Vivek get married.
Since Vivek is Mamta's step-son, she schemes with Dhanraj (Sadashiv Amrapurkar) to alienate him from any inheritance. This divides the family, even though Vivek accepts his step-mother's wishes.
