A thief on the run hides a 30 crore diamond in a building under construction. He is arrested and taken to prison. Months later he emerges and in happy anticipation of the 30 crore loot awaiting him, saunters to the construction sight.

Only to discover that the building under construction has become the police head quarters.

With this wacky story and an inspired star cast, king of comedy David Dhawan dishes up a film so full of fun, frolic and action.

Everybody in the cast Bobby Deol to Shilpa Shetty, Shekhar Suman to Bipasha Basu, Presh Rawal, Om Puri, Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajat Bedi, have put their hearts and souls int othis merry romp and have had a ball while doing it.

With Chor Machaaye Shor you get everything in a nutty shell - rolicking fun, clean comedy and zany characters who will steal your heart, even as they go about the serious business of stealing a diamond.
