They also meet Lali (Manjot Singh), who runs his father's sweet shop and wants to impress his girlfriend Shalu (Priya Anand), who studies in the same college. However, their plan goes awry when they borrow money from Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadda), a notorious female don who runs an illegal business.

The movie begins with a narration by Hunny (Pulkit Samrat), who introduces himself and his three friends, Choocha, Lali, and Zafar, as Fukrey. He explains how they met and became friends, and how they came up with the idea of using Choocha's dreams to predict lottery numbers. He also reveals that Choocha has a crush on Bholi Punjaban, whom he calls his angel. He says that their story is about how their dreams turned into nightmares.
The movie then shows how the four friends plan to get admission in the college of their choice by paying a hefty donation. They approach Pandit, who tells them that he can arrange the money from Bholi Punjaban, who is looking for investors for her business. They agree to meet her and are stunned to see that she is a ruthless and cunning don who deals in drugs and illegal activities. She agrees to lend them the money on the condition that they return it with 100% interest within a week. She also makes them sign a contract that gives her the right to kill them if they fail to repay her.
The friends are confident that they can win the lottery by using Choocha's dreams, which he calls "Deja Choo". They ask him to dream of something that will give them the winning number. He dreams of a tiger chasing him and then biting his bum. They interpret this as the number 34, which is the code for tiger in the lottery system. They buy the ticket and wait for the result. However, they are shocked to find out that the number is 32, which is the code for lion. They realize that they have made a mistake in interpreting Choocha's dream.
They try to explain their situation to Bholi Punjaban, but she refuses to listen and threatens to kill them. She also sends her henchmen to kidnap them and torture them. They manage to escape from her clutches and decide to try their luck again with another dream. This time, Choocha dreams of a snake biting his finger. They interpret this as the number 13, which is the code for snake in the lottery system. They buy the ticket and wait for the result. However, they are again disappointed to find out that the number is 11, which is the code for elephant. They realize that they have made another mistake in interpreting Choocha's dream.
They are now desperate and scared for their lives. They try to contact Pandit for help, but he tells them that he has been fired from his job and has no money or influence to help them. He also tells them that Bholi Punjaban has found out about their location and is coming to kill them. They run away from their hideout and try to find a way out of their mess. They come across Neetu (Vishakha Singh), who is Zafar's ex-girlfriend and a journalist. She tells them that she has been investigating Bholi Punjaban's illegal activities and has evidence against her. She offers to help them if they agree to expose her in front of the media.
They agree to cooperate with Neetu and devise a plan to trap Bholi Punjaban. They call her and tell her that they have found another way to repay her money. They ask her to meet them at a warehouse where they have arranged a fake lottery draw with fake tickets and fake money. They also inform Neetu about the location and ask her to bring along some media persons and police officers.
The plan works as expected and Bholi Punjaban falls into their trap. She arrives at the warehouse with her henchmen and sees the fake lottery draw taking place. She thinks that she has hit the jackpot and grabs the fake money from the fake organizer. However, she soon realizes that she has been fooled when she sees Neetu and other media persons exposing her crimes on camera. She also sees police officers arriving at the scene and arresting her henchmen.
The four friends are relieved and happy to see Bholi Punjaban getting arrested. They also get their admission in the college and celebrate their victory. However, they soon realize that they have not escaped from her completely. They see her making a phone call from the police van and threatening them to pay back her money with interest. She also tells them that she will be out soon and will take revenge on them. The movie ends with a cliffhanger, leaving the scope for a sequel.
