Pratap Kumar Srivastav (Mithun Chakraborty) travels from Shyamnagar to Bombay, and is hired by his father's friend, Ram Prasad (Madan Puri). He rents a room in a Chawl in Borivali's 'Asha Manzil' where his friend, Gopal Mathur (Naseeruddin Shah) and his attractive sister, Maya (Yogeeta Bali) also live. Pratap's main aim is to succeed in life, become rich, and buy a flat in posh Malabar Hills. He succeeds considerably, woos his boss' daughter, Indrani (Ranjeeta) and is soon promoted to the position of Deputy General Manager. On the day of his engagement to Indrani, he goes missing, and subsequently she and her father are notified that he has been arrested and charged with the homicide of a pregnant Maya.
