Shiva (Akshay Kumar) is a small-time thief in Mumbai who falls in love with Paro (Sonakshi Sinha) from Patna, who is in Mumbai to attend a marriage. Shiva makes his way into Paro's heart and she starts loving him. Shiva tells her the truth about him being a thief and resolves to give up crime forever. But before that, he decides to swindle one last person for a large sum of money along with his con-friend 2G (Paresh Ganatra). He tricks a woman on a railway station (Gurdeep Kohli) and flees with a trunk. This leads Shiva to Chinki (Ananya Nayak), a girl who was in the trunk instead of the wealth he thought was there, who thinks that he is her father. Flummoxed by what is happening, but forced to keep Chinki with him as a police officer (Yashpal Sharma) keeps his eye on him.
Although he tries keeping Chinki away from Paro's eyes, the latter finds out about her. Angry and hurt, Paro leaves for Patna leaving Shiva heartbroken. Soon, unknown goons attack him, taking him to be a latter named ASP Vikram Rathore (also Akshay Kumar), Chinki's real father. Rathore looks exactly like Shiva which had caused all the confusion. While many unknown persons help Shiva run to safety with Chinki in his arms, he is soon surrounded by the goons. It is then that Rathore makes an appearance and saves the day killing every goon by himself. But Rathore soon dies suffering from injuries.
The other policemen who had assisted the ASP then inform Shiva of the whole incident. In a village Devgarh, a MLA, Baapji (Nassar) used to trouble, torture and annex money from people. One night Vikram Rathore tricks Baapji's son Munna (Amit Kumar Tiwari) into killing himself by hanging himself from a tree by the belt of a humiliated inspector. Rathore is then attacked by Baapji's brother Titla (Supreeth Reddy) on Dusshehra where he is stabbed from the back as well as shot in the head while trying to save a village child and is assumed to be dead. He survives with a brain injury although the goons assumed that he was dead. Effects of this brain injury are later visible and they are diminished by water falling on his head.
Shiva then adopts Chinki, who does not know that her father is dead. Shiva returns to Devgarh posing as ASP Vikram Rathore and heads to settle the scores with Baapji. 2G tells Paro the truth and she forgives Shiva. Shiva, being a goon, handles Baapji well with tricks. He sets the MLA's wine factory on fire and makes the villagers rob his food store. A fight ensues in which he defeats all Baapji's men alone. In the end, he fights with Baapji and Titla on a rope bridge. Shiva ties the two to a rope and cuts it. Both fall to their deathes. Shiva marries Paro, and they leave for a new life with Chinki and 2G.
