The insinuating cry of every man, woman and child in this village when they see Johnny Belinda (Shreyas Talpade) is all about it. Afraid of everything and everyone, Johnny is one terrified soul. Born into the household of David (Om Puri), a local farmer and being the only son, Johnny does what he's best at to help his ailing father. Nothing, other than buying lottery tickets every week. The only thing going in his life is his love for Maria (Madhurima) the daughter of the village's biggest gangster, Paresh Rawal, and sworn enemy of David. Peter (Paresh Rawal), armed with three herculean sons, goes to all ends to make sure Maria and Johnny never marry, until one day, hope comes in the form of a silent, strong but always-hungry man, Kallu a. k. a. Sam (Nana Patekar).
