Some good music work!!!
Aj (Bobby Deol) wants to rule the music industry. He is, however, successful in convincing himself to become a successful musician. Because he has the capability and thought he wants some more. With full confidence , he decided to step out and goes to sing more songs to make himself more popular. Reji (Umen Patel) comes into his way, and started to condemn Aj's music and said he can sing more better than Aj. He even snatch away Aj's sweet heat Rohi Parker. But Aj straight his mind to one thing, music, that was his life. And he would go to any extent to become a popular musician, if he have got to destroy Reji for that. Shakalaka Boom Boom is the convincing part of music & it will always remain so.
