All that the dying Seth Dindayal could manage, after robbed and shot, to "Dial 100", the emergency number for police help.

Rana and Raju, the convicts escaping with a fortune in diamonds, find the police hot on their trail. That gets the better of them and the duo falls out on each other. Raju treacherously makes off with the diamonds and later hides them in a guitar & keeps it in the car of Pop Singer Gautam and he himself hides in the Dicky.

And thus begins a merry-mix-up as the guitar changes hands almost with magical ease from a wayside tramp who leaves if off the car to a couple of bumbling cyclists Bhaijan Bhopali and captain Jolly, who unknown to them are now in possession of a fortune in diamonds. They are the tenants of India House, the building where the rib-tickling crime comedy takes exciting turns. Gautam and his girlfriend Geeta, Raju who has been following them all along and Rana out for revenge, are all the tenants of this building, on the lookout for the guitar housing the diamonds. Amidst the make of shocking surprises the guitar once again changes hands. Raju's attempts to get hold of it are foiled by Rana's presence. Raju hides himself in Geeta's Room surprising the girl, who hits him with a brass flower pot.

Geeta has now a dead body on her hands-a murder to explain-Rana is frantically looking out for Raju and Gautam's engagement to Geeta is in danger of being broken off-Geeta frantically conveys the news to Gautam. But Gautam finds the body has disappeared.

What happens next..........

What has Rana in mind?

Where is the Guitar full of diamonds?

"Dial 100" provides the thrilling finale to a rib-tickling crime comedy that will have you on the edge of your seat, laughing nervously.
