The story revolves around the life of Dharampal Trivedi (played by Paresh Rawal), a Hindu man who suddenly discovers that he was adopted and his biological parents were Muslims. Dharampal's life takes a drastic turn when he starts investigating his roots, leaving him confused about his identity and religious beliefs.

Dharampal's quest to find his biological parents leads him to his Muslim father Nawab Mehmood Shah (played by Annu Kapoor) who greets him with open arms, but his newfound identity brings chaos to his life as he is shunned by his own Hindu family and friends.

To add to his troubles, Dharampal is forced to hide his newfound identity when he realizes that the local Hindu religious leader Neelanand Baba (played by Naseeruddin Shah) is determined to use him as a pawn in his political game.

As Dharampal struggles to come to terms with his identity, he finds himself caught in the crossfire of religious and political tensions. The movie tackles the issue of religious identity and the impact it has on people's lives, raising important questions about faith, tolerance, and acceptance.

The performances from the lead cast are exceptional, with Paresh Rawal delivering an outstanding performance as the conflicted Dharampal. His portrayal of a man struggling to reconcile his religious beliefs with his newfound identity is commendable. Annu Kapoor, too, is impressive as the compassionate and understanding father who welcomes his son with open arms. Naseeruddin Shah is exceptional in his role as the cunning religious leader, Neelanand Baba, who manipulates religious sentiment for his own political gain.

The movie's plot is engaging from start to finish, and never loses focus on its central theme - the search for identity and the conflict it brings with it. The movie's message is subtle yet powerful, urging people to cast aside their biases and prejudices and embrace diversity and tolerance.

The movie's direction and cinematography are commendable, with the director successfully creating an immersive world that captures the essence of the film's theme. The movie's music is of good quality, with some standout tracks that add to the film's impact.
