In college Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapur) was numero uno in academics, sports, dramatics and touted as the next cover of Time magazine. But four years after winning the best-student-of-the-year trophy from his architectural college, he's wondering why a brilliant architect like him, with designs to set the Canadian landscape on fire, is still struggling to find that One Big Chance to showcase his mettle. It's almost as though some negative kismat is following him around because whenever something good is about to happen, it seems doomed to fail. Desperate to fight this cursed kismat that's following him around, because whenever something good is about to happen, it seems doomed to fail. Desperate to fight this cursed kismat that's hell bent on playing such mean tricks on him, Raj meets a quirky oracle, Hasina Bano Jaan (Juhi Chawla). She tells him that soon his stars will change and make everything work in his favour; but for all this to happen, Raj has first to find his lucky charm and never let go of it. But she tells him no more, leaving Raj mystified, trying to figure out what this charm could be. Then suddenly and miraculously his life is on the right track.
