Hathyar is a narrative which probes into the household of Raghunath (Sanjay Dutt), a dreaded gangster. His bereaved son Rohit (also Sanjay Dutt) has to face a lot of flak from the outside world, repeatedly reminding him of the stigma attached to his family because of his father's past. Just like his father, circumstances force Rohit to become a gangster, and he gets the nickname "Boxer Bhai". Rohit has weaknesses, and he cannot stand any woman being called a prostitute, because his mother, Sonu (Namrata Shirodkar) was one, and he has fallen hard for a married woman, Gauri (Shilpa Shetty), who is enduring a marriage with a physically abusive spouse. Rohit snatches her out of this abusive relationship and remarries her, and gives birth to a daughter named Shanti. But their married lives are shattered when Gauri's friend Jyoti (Resham Tipnis) husband, who was a police officer and informer of Fracture Nagya, gets killed by Rohit. Gauri, heartbroken, leaves Rohit and lives at her brother Munna's house. Rohit tries to contact her, but all efforts are in vain. Munna persuades Gauri to go back to Rohit, but sooner he is killed by Rohit after influenced by Pakya's (Sharad Kapoor) false story. Gauri, angered, cuts all ties with Rohit, lives in a small house nowhere. Rohit is attacked by Pakya and his men but miraculously survives.

It is then revealed that Rohit's godfather Digamber Patil (Gulshan Grover) had conspired with Fracture Nagya (Anup Soni) against him and gets double-crossed by his friend Pakya. A vengeful Rohit sets out to finish Digamber, Pakya and Nagya. He locates Pakya in a guesthouse. Rohit eventually kills Nagya and is about to kill Pakya, but the latter pleads with him for forgiveness. Rohit, who considered Pakya as his friend, gets enraged by his betrayal, kills him. Subsequently, Rohit brutally murders Digamber with a cricket bat and goes in hiding.

After the turn of events, Rohit becomes the most wanted criminal and is issued "shoot at sight" orders by the Home Minister. DCP Kishore Kadam (Deepak Tijori), who is Rohit's guardian, has no other option but to kill him and obey the orders. Before surrendering to the police, Rohit asks for forgiveness from Gauri and says that he was not wrong. He requests Gauri to go away, and whatever happens to him, she would not turn back. Rohit commits suicide, and the armed police force attacks Rohit. Rohit's grandmother Shanta (Reema Lagoo) advises Gauri to take Shanti far away so that she would not be affected by Raghu and Rohit's dark pasts. In the end, both decide to leave the city.
