HULCHUL is about two warring families and their never-ending rivalry.
Fiery Angaarchand [Amrish Puri] and his family of four sons [Jackie Shroff, Paresh Rawal, Arbaaz Khan and Akshaye Khanna] have taken a vow to stay away from women owing to a past family tragedy.
The mere mention of the opposite sex is 'strictly forbidden' in their family. Actually, it's the battle over a woman that resulted in the entire feud between the two families.
Lakshmidevi [Lakshmi] is waiting for an opportunity to seek revenge on Angaarchand and his family. As luck would have it, Angaarchand's youngest son, Jai [Akshaye Khanna], and Lakshmidevi's grand-daughter, Anjali [Kareena Kapoor], land up in the same college. Then starts the game of deceit.
Both Jai and Anjali pretend to fall in love with each other to seek revenge for their respective families. And to aid in all the pranks comes Jai's best friend, the troublemaker Lucky [Arshad Warsi].
But somewhere down the line, all this play becomes serious and the two actually begin to develop true feelings for each other…
