Plot

Rajveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan) has an immense passion for stock car racing and dreams of making it big on the racecourse. After being discovered by his manager Harry (Jaaved Jaffrey), he meets Radhika Shekar Rai Banerjee (Rani Mukerji) and instantly falls for her. He joins Speeding Saddles, a failing race team, and transforms from Rajveer Singh to RV the race car driver. He wins his first race and keeps winning, making him quite wealthy.

What started as an innocent love blossoms into a serious relationship as months pass by. Radhika is a great pianist, majoring in music at Columbia University, whereas Rajveer has no degree or any educational background. His lack of education and planning earns the disapproval of Radhika’s father, Subho Shekar Rai Banerjee (Victor Banerjee). Radhika leaves her father and marries RV. She forgets about her degree and takes on her job as a wealthy housewife therefore Radhika Shekar Rai Banerjee turns into Shona. Their family is complete with the birth of two beautiful children, Priya aka Princess (Angelina Idnani) and Ranveer aka Champ(Ali Haji). Luck follows him as RV and he is soon proclaimed the number one race car driver in the USA.

However tragedy strikes when RV is involved in a deliberate accident whilst racing and he is hospitalized for a few months.

When he gets out, RV heads straight back to the track to race again but soon learns that he’s scared of going fast because he doesn’t want to crash and get hurt again. Every race he joins, he ends up in last place. His manager then fires RV and makes Harry the manger for someone else. RV tells Harry that he doesn’t need him, he can find some other manager easily.

But it isn’t that easy.

A year has gone by and both RV and Shona don’t have any jobs. They try their best to find one but no one will hire them because they have no degree. RV and Shona soon unable to pay the loans and bills so everything they own in their house is sold. Princess and Champ worry that they’re becoming poor but RV says they’re actually on a reality show, “Don’t worry, Be Happy.” With only about $2,000 left RV and his family has to leave their big house and find a less expensive one.

The family moves into a one bedroom apartment and the children start to get worried. RV and Shona tells them this is all part of the game and the kids still believe them. The kids still go to their favorite school while the parents still try to find jobs.

A few days later, Shona gets a job as a piano player and RV becomes a taxi driver.

One night when RV and Shona start arguing Princess overhears them and learns that they actually are in trouble with money. She then plans to save up the money she and Champ use everyday for lunch. Both don’t eat, and Champ gets starved. He takes food from the garbage without his sister knowing and eats it by himself outside of the school on a bench. He keeps eating from the garbage while Princess keeps saving up money. Princess makes Champ promise not to tell their parents, knowing they’ll get mad.

RV gets a customer who needs to get to the airport soon. He takes this chance as to test his racing skills. RV starts off doing great until he gets flashback on his accident. He then learns that he could probably never race again because of being scared of getting hurt again.

Champ then gets a piece of glass inside his stomach from eating something. RV, Shona, and Princess quickly run to the hospital where Princess tells her parents the plan she made Champ follow. When they get to the hospital, the doctor tell RV and Shona that they need $65,000 dollars. RV and Shona have no idea how they were going to get the money, and only have two days to get it somehow. So RV decides to enter a race for his son’s sake. He meets his old nemeses and he starts remembering the flashbacks. But that doesn’t stop him.
