The plot focuses on the protagonist, Shivaji Rao (Anil Kapoor). He happens to be an ambitious TV reporter, working for “Q TV” along with his friend Topi (Johnny Lever). While on the job, Rao records a conversation in which the Chief Minister Balraj Chauhan (Amrish Puri), takes an indifferent stand during riots triggered by a fight between some college students and bus drivers, so as not to lose his voter base. Due to police inaction, there is loss of life and damage to property.
To explain his actions, Chauhan later agrees to a live interview with Shivaji, during which Rao raises these issues and airs the Chief Minister’s stand he had caught on tape.
In response to Shivaji’s allegations about the mismanagement by his government, Chauhan redirects the question by instead talking about how difficult his job is due to red tape and bureaucracy, and challenges Shivaji to be the CM for a day and experience those problems himself. Shivaji reluctantly accepts the challenge to prove Chauhan wrong.
Educated and vigilant, Shivaji takes care of issues that affect the populace every day, giving the slum their rightful apartments, getting jobs for the unemployed, suspending inefficient and corrupt government officers. He is assisted by the secretary, Bansal (Paresh Rawal) who serves as a sidekick.
As the last act of the day, Rao gets Chauhan arrested as he is the root cause of all the corruption. Later, Chauhan bails out and passes an ordinance to nullify all orders passed by Shivaji when he was the CM. Taking Shivaji’s success as an insult, Chauhan sends hitmen to get him killed and destroys his house on false grounds. Please See More Information…..
