Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) and Ajay (Vinod Khanna) are hard working young men who specialize in Hera Pheri. Their jobs are not like those of normal people - they are con artists. They con bad guys into giving them money by various methods, which leads to a very comedy story. During one of their escapades, Ajay saves Aasha (Sulakshna Pandit) and later falls in love with her. Vijay on the other hand is busy trying to protect his mother from the man who murdered his father. Vijay has spent his life searching for the killer and will do anything to find him. But when the killer is finally found, he turns out to be Ajay's father. Vijay's misery knows no bounds as Ajay leaves his side to join his father in a life of crime. Kiran (Saira Bano) who works for Ajay's father consoles Vijay in his vulnerable state. When Vijay learns that he is surrounded by traitors, he doesn't know where to turn or who to trust. Hera Pheri is considered to be one of Amitabh's greatest comedies to date.
