Major General Amarjeet Singh (Amitabh Bachchan) is a dedicated officer for the Indian army. His son Lieutenant Commander Vikramjeet Singh (Bobby Deol) follows in his footsteps and joins the army. Amarjeet is extremely proud of Vikramjeet but tragedy strikes when Vikramjeet is killed in action. Many years pass, Vikramjeet's son Captain Kunal Singh (Bobby Deol) joins the army but has no intentions of remaining there. He instead plans to leave, settle abroad and earn lots of money. Amarjeet is disappointed with Kunal as he hopes his grandson would do something to honour his deceased father. Kunal comes across a desert party and sees Shweta Bhansali (Divya Khosla). It is love at first sight for him but she totally ignores him and does everything to avoid him. However she is doing this for a reason- she was once married. Shweta fell in love and married Major Rajeev Singh (Akshay Kumar), unfortunately he was deployed for action on his wedding day and he had to leave his newly wed bride.
All Maj. Amarjeet Singh wants is for his grandson Kunal to be as noble and brave as Amarjeet and the boy's father, Vikramjeet. But Kunal has other plans and does not wish to follow in his father's and grandfather's military legacies. Reluctantly, Kunal gives in and joins the army and ends up falling for Shweta, the widow of a fallen soldier. When the man later turns up alive, will Shweta return to him or stay with her new love?
