Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) is a dedicated, if eccentric bank-manager, who's served the Vilasrao Jefferson Bank in Bombay's crowded Dawa Bazaar area for a quarter of a century. The problem with Rajput is that he's given to uncontrollable rages - anyone who's caught shirking his duty or fiddling the procedures is beaten to a pulp. Well, this happens once too often and Rajput is given the pink slip by a petrified management. He promptly plots a diabolical revenge - a foolproof heist that will baffle the best brains in the world.
He zeroes in on three blind men, Vishwas Prajapati (Akshay Kumar), Arjun Verma (Arjun Rampal) and Ilyaas (Paresh Rawal) - they have an unbeatable alibi, their blindness. To train them, he gets Neha Srivastava (Sushmita Sen), a teacher of the visually impaired, by the simple expedient of kidnapping her little brother. Rajput remains in the background, supervising the training and the trainees don't know that he's around at all. Except Vishwas, whose infallible sixth sense kicks in, telling him there's someone lurking in the shadows. Training over, the heist is carried out but things don't go entirely as planned…

This series is not only an entertainment but will also work as an introspecitve media for youth and the elder-ones, who most of the times cannot understand each other at a particular level, which creates misunderstandings and develops stress levels hampering the entire living. We strongly believe that we are going ahead constructing the entire living. We strongly believe that we are going ahead constructing a bridge called “Duniyadari” to fill up this generation gap.
