The film opens in a circus, where two cousins — Henna (Asin Thottumkal), the younger sister and Bobby (Jacqueline Fernandez), the elder sister of the Kapoor family who hate each other very much starts quarreling for something relating to their duties of Animals’ Law Authority. Their fathers Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) and Dabboo (Randhir Kapoor) are step-brothers who hate each other to the very core. Even their wives and daughters hate each other very much. Chintu wants the richest son-in law for his daughter, Henna, while Dabboo too wants the same for his daughter, Bobby. Aakhri Pasta (Chunky Pandey), a marriage counselor, brings Jai’s (Shreyas Talpade) father to Chintu.
However, Chintu verbally abuses the father and he ends in a hospital. Jai gets angry and vows revenge telling his friend, Jolly (Ritesh Deshmukh) who is the son of billionaire, J.D. (Mithun Chakraborty) to go to Chintu, accept to marry his daughter and then break off the wedding at the last minute. However, Jolly is very scared of his father and suggests Max (John Abraham), their former college mate and a thief, to do the job. Max is happy to do the job for a paycheck. Jai goes with Max as his driver but somehow, they end in the wrong house and go to Dabboo’s house.
Jai and Max later find out their mistake. Jai, still wanting revenge, doesn’t know what to do and Jolly suggests another former sleazy college mate, Sunny (Akshay Kumar). Jai says that Sunny is too big a rascal but agrees later. Sunny agrees to do the job for a paycheck and Jolly goes with Sunny as his bodyguard because Max and Sunny are sworn enemies and as Dabboo’s house and Chintu’s house are right next to each other, their plan may get destroyed. Pasta asks why they are enemies. Jolly and Jai then tell him that they used to be best friends. However during a party, Max’s girlfriend tries to seduce Sunny in a cupboard. She said that she thinks Sunny is hotter then Max. Sunny disagrees to do such a thing being Max’s best friend. While she was sexing Sunny, Max sees Sunny and his girlfriend together. His girlfriend tells him that Sunny tried to seduce her. Max knowing Sunny’s character thinks that she is telling the truth and breaks off the friendship. Sunny becomes furious as Max does not believe him and believes the characterless girl. From that night on, they share hard enmity.
Henna and Bobby go to Law Functions Award and are forced to go with Sunny and Max respectively. However, they all end up on an island. Sunny and Max have a fight where Sunny tells Max the truth. Max finally understands and they reconcile. On the other hand, Bobby and Henna reconcile and start to recognize each other as blood sisters. Due to Sunny’s and Max’s cons, Bobby falls for Max and Henna falls for Sunny.
On asking why he is so scared about his father, Jolly then tells everyone about his father’s past. J.D. was a bandit in India in a village named Gangapur. He surrendered to Batuk Patel (Boman Irani), as Batuk was his good friend. The day he surrendered, J.D. promised Batuk to get his son married to Batuk’s daughter, Parul (Shazahn Padamsee). He also tells them that J.D. is the abbreviation for Jagga Dakku (Dakku means bandit in Hindi), and adds that his real name isn’t Jolly, but it is Jwala, a name that only a bandit would keep his for his son. Meanwhile JLo (Zarine Khan), Jolly’s girlfriend, has been demanding Jolly to tell his father about her. Jolly does not do so as he knows a dark and terrifying secret about J.D.
Dabboo gets Jolly (Max) engaged to Bobby and Chintu gets Jolly (Sunny) engaged to Henna. To surprise Jolly, who is actually Sunny, Chintu blindfolds Jolly (Sunny), Henna, and Jwala (who is pretending to be a bodyguard), and takes them to J.D.’s house, believing Sunny to be J.D.’s son. When they open their eyes, Sunny and Henna are impressed on seeing the mansion, but Jwala is scared, and whispers the truth into Sunny’s ear. Sunny, frightened, hands the garland into Jwala’s hands. J.D. opens the door and believes that Jwala got engaged to Henna, and brings out a gun and shoots. Fortunately, everyone dodges the bullet and it hits the car. Sunny realizes what was going on, and goes to J.D. saying that he himself is Jwala’s new driver. Sunny promises J.D. to break Jwala’s and Henna’s engagement.
After Sunny fools Chintu, Chintu calls Dabboo in excitement and tells him that his daughter, Henna, is getting married to Jolly, the son of J.D. Confused, and believing Max to be Jolly, Dabboo takes Max and Bobby to J.D.’s mansion. Sunny handles the situation well by fooling J.D. by taking the name of his religion and tells him that Max is Jolly’s friend and Bobby is Max’s fiance (though actually it is true) and Max’s father is against his and Bobby’s marriage. J.D. then welcomes Bobby, Max and her family to his house and tells them to stay there up to Bobby and Max’s marriage.
Batuk Patel arrives with his daughter Parul to make things worse. Jai and Jwala come to receive them from the airport. But when they see Parul, Jai and Jwala lie that Jai is Jolly. Parul becomes happy hearing this as she secretly loved him. JLo gives Jwala the ultimatum — take me to your house or forget me. To help Jwala, Sunny lies to J.D. saying that JLo his his fiance and J.D. again agrees to let her live there as Sunny takes the name of his religion. Sunny and Max lie to their respective father-in-laws that the other guy is the son of J.D. and a maid servant in the mansion. This creates a lot of confusion. Sunny, Max, Jwala and Jai were Jolly in the eyes of Chintu, Dabboo, J.D., and Batuk Patel respectively. But J.D. thought of Sunny, Chintu and Batuk Patel thought of Jwala, while Dabboo thought of Jai to be the driver of Jolly.
When Sunny’s father as well as Max’s ‘Guru’ tells them never to break anyone’s heart, Sunny and Max tell the truth to Henna and Bobby. Enraged, Bobby and Henna slap Max and Sunny respectively and tell them that they never want to see their faces again. But thinking that instead of telling the truth, Sunny and Max could have done more wrong with them, the two sisters pardon the two boys on the very next day. There Jai and Jolly also let off their plan of revenge on Kapoors on Jai’s father’s advice. Then Henna proposes Sunny in Sunny’s language and Bobby proposes Max in Max’s language.
On the day of the four couples’ marriage, J.D. and the other brides’ fathers learn the truth about the grooms and that they have been lying all this time. Finally Bobby and Henna convince their fathers to forget their enmity and live together as blood brothers. Chintu and Dabboo join hands and so do their wives. But J.D. was not convinced by them telling the truth, so he turns back into Jagga Dakku and starts frightening the families with his gun. He shoots Sunny with his gun as Sunny is running towards J.D to save him from the falling chandelier and then he understands what was happening. In the end, all the grooms get married to their respective girlfriends.
