Plot

When Hollywood stuntman Viraj Shergill (Akshay Kumar) and medical student Simrita Rai (Kareeena Kapoor) come across each other at his brother Lucky’s and her best friend Kamini’s hastily planned wedding ceremony, they instantly develop a dislike for each other. They both have a very low opinion of the opposite sex, and staunchly believe marriage is not the way to go for the two newlyweds, whom they try to discourage from proceeding further.
Simrita convinces Kamini to test out her theory that men are after only one thing, by forcing Lucky to delay their marriage vows for three months. She is sure, Lucky will not be able to do so and this will prove to Kamini that Lucky is just another low-class male, like all others, and her claims of him being different than most men are unfounded. Viraj, upon hearing about this new development, tries to do the exact opposite, i.e. force Kamini herself to want to get in bed with Lucky.
This results in a hilarious scene at a local disco bar, where Viraj lures Kamini with the hope of her finding Lucky with a “girlfriend” that he has planted in the lap of Lucky in order to make Kamini jealous. The plan backfires and Kamini and Lucky end up in divorce court where the judge puts them on a three month probation and marriage counselling.
Meanwhile, Simrita and Viraj keep bumping into each other when they both travel to Italy independently, the former to make some quick cash as a model to pay for her medical bills, and the latter, with Lucky, to chill out and take a vacation from all of the marital stress Lucky has been facing back home.
Upon returning home, Simrita is given a watch pendant by her Dolly Aunty to wear as a good luck charm. The pendant hangs from a bracelet on her wrist. Viraj gets seriously hurt in an accident at work and is brought for emergency surgery to the hospital where Simrita is an intern. Much to each other’s irritation, Simrita is given the charge to perform surgery on Viraj. After the surgery, while looking at the X-rays, she is horrified to discover, the watch on her wrist has accidentally fallen off and ended up in sealed in Viraj’s stomach.
The surgery is supposed to be Simrita’s final exam that would qualify her as a surgeon. She is now afraid of her mistake being caught and tries to get Viraj back into surgery. Viraj is unaware of what has happened and distrustful of Simrita is only interested in getting out of the hospital, as far away from Simrita as possible. Simrita tries to play nice knowing she needs Viraj’s co-operation to rescue her career, but he is not listening
Knowing, that Viraj is not going to co-operate and most certainly will raise the alarm if he finds out, there is a watch floating about inside of him, Simrita must now find a way to take the watch out of Viraj without his finding out. She tries different tricks. She first tries to drug Viraj at his workplace in order that he passes out and ends up in the hospital, whence she can operate on him. Unfortunately, he ends up in a different hospital. She then tries to act interested in him and seduces him to her hotel room where she tries to drug him again. She ends up drinking the glass with the drugs instead of Viraj.
As a result of her being accidentally drugged, she begins to seduce Viraj uninhibitedly, in the process of which it becomes clear why Simrita hates men. She is bitter about her perceived unfaithfulness of the two most prominent men from her childhood, her divorced father and her elder sister’s ex-husband. By this time, Viraj is secretly beginning to fall in love with Simrita. He starts to spend time with her, but it turns out Simrita is in reality only interested in getting her watch out of Viraj’s stomach and not in Viraj himself.
