Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) is a dedicated, if eccentric bank-manager, who's served the Vilasrao Jefferson Bank in Bombay's crowded Dawa Bazaar area for a quarter of a century. The problem with Rajput is that he's given to uncontrollable rages - anyone who's caught shirking his duty or fiddling the procedures is beaten to a pulp. Well, this happens once too often and Rajput is given the pink slip by a petrified management. He promptly plots a diabolical revenge - a foolproof heist that will baffle the best brains in the world. He zeroes in on three blind men, Vishwas Prajapati (Akshay Kumar), Arjun Verma (Arjun Rampal) and Ilyaas (Paresh Rawal) - they have an unbeatable alibi, their blindness. To train them, he gets Neha Srivastava (Sushmita Sen), a teacher of the visually-impaired, by the simple expedient of kidnapping her little brother. Rajput remains in the background, supervising the training and the trainees don't know that he's around at all. Except Vishwas, whose infallible sixth sense kicks in, telling him there's someone lurking in the shadows.
