Vinod Chopra and Sudhir Mishra are professional photographers who open a photo studio in a prestigious area in Bombay, hoping to run the business successful. After a rough start, they finally get some work from a publication that strips the scandals of high-profile people. Accepting this task, they start working with the editor of the publication on a story of an immoral builder and corrupt Municipal Commissioner. During the time, the photographer duo also enters a photography competition for a prize money of Rs 5000. This task makes them shoot random pictures all over the city, from which they serendipitously encounter a picture of a man shooting someone.

In a pursuit of exposing the builder, they plan to obtain the corpse of the person murdered and what all debauchery they come across in this pursuit marks the rest of the story.
