DHANWAAN as the title suggests, obviouslycentres around richness. But what is wealthiness all about? What is richness all about? Many would describe it as having lots of money, having abundant material possessions, but DHANWAAN does not revolve around those so-called rich people. It's about people who are rich at heart.

Young Anju (Karishma Kapoor) has been an urbanite for the most part of her life, she has some queer habits to her credit (rather discredit) and has not lived life to the fullest because she is miles away from the practicalities of life. Jagmohan Chopra (Kader Khan), her grand-father wants her to be more practical and cheerful. With this idea he takes her to a beautiful hill station and very soon the rural atmosphere does the trick. She meets Kashi (Ajay Devgan) a horse trainer by profession. Kashi is instrumental in bringing her closer to mother nature and virtues of life. After some days, Anju and her grand-father return home. Anju's father Manmohan Chopra (Dalip Tahil) wants her to tie the knot with the wealthy Ajit (Avinash Wadhwan) Anju now realises the fact that she has fallen in love with Kashi and reveals it. Her father disapproves. In such a crisis her grand-father proves her saviour and takes her again to the hill-station. But fate has some-thing else in store for them. They receive the shock of their life when they learn that Kashi is in love with village-bele Imli (Manisha Koirala). What happens next?

To know the answer you will have to view Divya Film Internationals- DHANWAAN.
