Plot summary

Main Hoon Na tells the story of Ram Prasad Sharma (Shahrukh Khan) and his efforts to foil the terrorist Raghavan Datta (Sunil Shetty). Ram is simultaneously attempting to mend relations with his father's estranged first wife and his half-brother Lakshman.

Raghavan is a former army officer court-martialed for executing eleven illiterate Pakistani civilians who accidentally crossed the border in search of water. He wants to sabotage Project Milaap (Unity), a first step towards friendship between India and Pakistan.

First he tries to kill General Amar Singh Bakshi (Kabir Bedi), the commander of the Indian Army, during a television interview. This fails due to Major Ram's intervention, although Raghavan does succeed in killing Brigadier Shekhar Sharma (Naseeruddin Shah), Major Sharma's father, who had ordered his decommission. He also threatens Bakshi's daughter Sanjana (Amrita Rao). As the elder Sharma dies, he tells Ram about his step mother Madhu (Kirron Kher) and half-brother Lakshman (Zayed Khan) and begs Ram to re-establish relations with them; Madhu had left Brigadier Sharma after discovering that he had a mistress who bore Major Ram.

The general later asks Major Sharma, who is clearly older than most students, to go undercover as a student at the college to protect Sanjana. He can also look for Lakshman at the same time, since he lives in the same town. Ram goes undercover as an older returning student. He finds Sanjana, nicknamed Sanju, and her friend Lucky, who is somewhat of a legend and idol at the school, because of his brash, wild and disrespectful manner, and his failure of the final year exams three times in a row. At first they do not like him and harass him regularly. One day when Lucky’s life is in danger, Ram comes to the rescue. He finds out that Lucky is Lakshman, and befriend them both. Ram quickly becomes a sensation among the whole school community, and falls in love with the chemistry teacher Chandni (Sushmita Sen).

Meanwhile Raghvan gives an order to shoot a friend of Sanjana named Percy in order to show the general that if he can kill one of her friends, he can definitely kill her as well. Ram is able to break this up and capture Raghvan's right-hand man and former army colleague Khan.

Raghvan is frustrated with Major Ram's actions and decides to go undercover as a teacher at the college. He later takes the entire school hostage and asks for Khan to be released, for Major Ram brought to him by a helicopter, and for Project Milaap to be stopped, or everyone will be executed. Ram and Khan arrive in a hall where all the frightened and worried students and teachers are being held. Khan has been convinced by Ram that Raghvan is wrong and helps him to free the students. Khan pretends to have ultra-hawkish opinions and shoots Ram dead in front of the school community, ostensibly against Raghvan's orders. However, Ram is wearing a bullet-proof vest and Khan takes his "body" away and releases him to start the fight against Raghvan. Khan is found out to be helping Ram, and murdered by Raghvan.

Meanwhile Pakistan has decided to release prisoners as well. In the climax, Raghvan battles Ram in a deserted part of the school, while Lucky gets onto an army helicopter to help rescue Ram. After the fight, Ram blows up Raghvan and jumps onto the helicopter just as the entire building goes up in flames.

On the border, the Pakistani and Indian prisoners are released and returned to their families. Ram and Lucky later empty their father's ashes into the Ganges River with their mother watching sadly. The movie ends with Lucky finally graduating from college (along with Ram), and then the credits appear as a music video.
