PlotEdit

Khanna plays Shekhar Varma, a Mumbai police inspector. He is happily married to Meena (Sheshadri) and they have a school-age daughter. One day, Shekhar's police department receives a call saying that an editor, Ritesh Nandy, has come across incriminating evidence that could expose the wrongdoings of some very influential people. Ritesh is killed despite being assigned police protection.

Geeta (Bijlani) presents herself as a witness to Ritesh's death, but cannot identify his killer. When her life is threatened, Shekhar and another inspector, Pramod Kadam (Inamdar), are assigned to protect her. In the process, Shekhar and Geeta fall in love, and Shekhar's wife begins to suspect her husband is having an affair. She manages to wring a confession out of him, then promptly leaves the house and moves in with her father. In the meantime, Pramod is wounded trying to protect Geeta and is hospitalized. Shekhar discovers that Ritesh's murder is the handiwork of high-ranking police officials.

An outstanding song from the score is the romantic duet Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye sung by Kumar Sanu and Sadhana Sargam. It was a cover of 500 Miles. The song "Marne Ke Dar Se Mere Dil" was heavily inspired by Madonna's "La Isla Bonita".[2][3]
