The news of this bravery spreads far enough to reach the ears of Dalip Tahil, Sunnys senior in the police force, who turns up to take Sunny back to Mumbai. But Sunny is adamant that he will not leave, as he has lost his faith in the Police System.

Suuny and Chunky meet Sonam,[the sister of Chunkys bhabhi, whose husband was killed by Ajgar and who is also out to seek revenge on him] who informs them that she too is in cahoots with them in their quest to destroy Ajgar. She tells them that they should go to Bubbles Discotheque ,which is owned and managed by Gulshan Grover[Tapaswi Gunjal], who would be their first step in locating Ajgar as he is Ajgars to be Son-in-law and is due to marry Ajgars daughter Sonia. Chunky and Sunny request Naseer to take them to Bubbles discotheque where Sonias birthday is being celebrated. They arrive there to find out that Sunnys love interest, Divya Bharati has been given a job at the disco as a singer and dancer.The song Saat Samundar Paar takes place after which Tapaswi[Gulshan Grover] tries to molest Divya in his van on the pretext of dropping her home.

Seeing the inspector ,Tapaswi and his mates flee, and Sunny and Chunky are taken back to the hotel by Inspector Suryapratap.
Next day at the hotel, Tapaswi arrives to meet his girlfriend Sonia and finds Divya Bharati swimming in the pool. She threatens to expose him for molesting her but he says sorry to her and extends his hand to Divya for an apology,when divya pulls him into the pool. This gives Chunky a chance to make off with Sonia and he pretends to be her driver. Sonia is angry as she discovers that Chunky is taking her elsewhere, and she gets off the car. Here Chunky expresses his love towards her by singing the song Saat Samundar Paar, but is interrupted by Tapaswi who has followed them with his henchmen.He also sings Saat Samundar Paar.This is a comedy filled moment worth watching. After that he kidnaps Chunky and takes him to Ajgars House. Chunky recognises Ajgar as his brothers murderer and swears revenge on him. But Ajgar hangs Chunky by a tree.Sunny, who had secretly followed Tapaswi after he kidnapped Chunky, now makes an entry and he saves Chunky by executing a stunt with his car. This is an amazing scene, though now it looks stupid, I can swear that it had me awed when I had watched it as a kid. After this, Chunky apologises to Sunny for wanting to kill him and asks him to be his friend and brother and both of them embrace.
Meanwhile Ajgar tells Tapaswi and his son that the Blue Panther Gang is arriving from India carrying a present for them. Upon their Arrival Ajgar is presented with a die of the 100 rupee note which he can use to make fake currency. He is so overjoyed that he hosts a Bharatiya Ekta Divas or "Indians Unity Meet to which he invites the current Kenyan Police Inspector and Inspector Suryapratap. Chunky and Sunny are informed of this by Sonam and are on their way to the party when Inspector Suryapratap turns up and says that they cannot go out during the night,and also places guard dogs at their door to prevent them from escaping.However Sunny ,Chunky and Sonam escape through the bathroom window and disguise themselves. Upon arriving at Ajgars house Sonam intoduces Sunny as Maharaja Bhookamp Singh and Divya Bharati as his wife while Chunky is introduced as Nawab Zafar Changezi.
A song Dil le gayi teri bindiya is started by Inspector Suryapratap, who is under the influence of alcohol which Sonam has coaxed him into having. Taking advantage of this Sunny and Chunky both start investigating Ajgars house and find a box of 100 rupee notes. They keep one note and come back into the song and dance. Next morning upon looking closely , Sunny declares the 100 rupee note to be a fake and thus the duo are convinced that Blue Panther gang and Ajgar are now in the fake currency business. They plan to find out more about this.
Meanwhile Sonam takes them to Tapaswi Gunjals casino where Sunny and Divya go as Maharaja and Maharani Bhookamp Singh but Chunky disguises as one of the Casinos dealers and comes to the table where Sunny is playing roulette. He gives Sonam a magnet that she fixes under the table on the very number that Sunny bets on thus making Sunny win all the money in the casino. On hearing this news Tapaswi is devastated and he comes out to find Sunny demanding his winnings. Sunny is assued by Tapaswi that he shall be paid in Indian Currency and Sunny is asked to come to Tapsawis residence the next morning. As they are leavimg Sunny and Chunky are caught and recognised inspite of their disguise by Naseeruddin shah. They tell Inspector Suryapratap that they want to fight evil and ask him for 48 hours in whih they can prove themselves and expose Ajgar. Inspector Suryapratap agrees but warns them that if they apprehend any innocent person then he shall be forced by his duty to arrest them.Chunky and Sunny agree.
Next Morning they go to Tapaswis residence to find Tapaswi waiting for them with boxes full of money. They know that the money is fake and hence, Chunky dressed as Nawab Changezi asks Tapaswi to count the cash. However Tapaswi, who has never been to school , finds difficulty in counting much to the glee of Chunky . Sunny meanwhile takes this opportunity to sneak into the room where the Die that is used to print fake notes is kept. He finds Ajgars son celebrating with the Blue Panther gang and manages to steal the Die from under their nose. Their task accomplished, Sunny and Chunky leave behind their garbs as a warning to Ajgar and leave Tapaswi still counting money who after his laboroius efforts at the task finally looks up to find the duo gone and their fancy costumes left behind.
He raises a hue and cry and the Blue Panther gang and Ajgar realise that they have been duped by none other than Chunky and Sunny. Ajgars vows to get the die back. Sunny calls Ajgar and tells him that he shall return the die but Ajgar has to comply with his demands. Ajgar calls him to his residence where Sunny annd Chunky and Sonam go.
Chunky demands Ajgars daughter as the price of the die to which Ajgar becomes angry and reminds Chunky of how he killed all of his brothers and is backed by the Blue Panther gang in his threats. However, this is heard by Sonia who comes out shouting that she hates her father and that he and her brothers are criminals. Sunny throws the die in the air and shoots it thus breaking it into pieces. Ajgar orders for them to be shot but Chunky holds Ajgars daughter Sonia at gunpoint and manages to get them all out of there taking Sonia along with them.
Chunky apologises to Sonia and tells her that he is in love with her to which Sonia replies that she also loves him and is willing to accept him as his life partner. Meanwhile Ajgars son complains to Inspector Suryapratap that Chunky has kidnapped his sister and he takes the inspector to the hotel room where Chunky has kept Sonia.
