Elaan tells the stoey of Baba Sikander. Terror has a new name - Baba Sikander (Mithun Chakraborthy). Drugs, Murder, Kidnapping are his game. Baba Sikander's very name strike fear, for he rules by fear. Just his phone call can sound your death knell. He can finish your life, while you're still alive. Or worse, sentence you to a living death. He recognizes no geographical boundaries for terrorism is his reign; he respects no international laws, for he makes his own.
His evil tentacles encircle the globe, terrorizing the rich and smashing the stubborn. Obey him and he may let you live. Incur his wrath and invite certain death. One man, Kantilal Shah refuses to yield to his demands and pays the terrible price. One man, Karan Shah (Rahul Khanna) will defy the improbable odds and make an impossible vow - he will capture the mighty Baba Sikander and drag him back to India, alive. This is his Elaan.
Assisting him in his mission are Arjun - an ex-cop (Arjun Rampal), Abhimanyu - a petty criminal (John Abraham), Sonia - a bar dancer (Lara Dutta) and Priya - a TV reporter (Amisha Patel). Together they are a team of five unlikely heroes and make one Elaan.
