Once upon a time, there was a kingdom, Ujjain, ruled by Maharaj Raja Vijay Singh (Pran), his only daughter Princess Indumati (Jayaprada) loves a dynamic guy Ramu (Jeetendra), who works as a gardener in the fort. Knowing it, Maharaj challenges Ramu to amass wealth equal to that of his to marry Indumati. Parallelly, a wizard, Mantrik Husair (Kader Khan) wants to achieve the power of Pataal Bhairavi which is in the form of the statuette and fulfills the wish of the person holding it. To acquire it, a dynamic person is required, Husair selects Ramu and traps him on an assurance that he will aid him in marrying the princess. Actually, his ploy is to sacrifice him before the Goddess to obtain the statuette. After making an adventurous journey, both of them reach there, when Ramu learns Husair's crooked plan, so, he clearly sacrifices him before Goddess and wins the statuette, consequently amassing the wealth. In return, Maharaj lives up to his promise and accepts for the alliance. Meanwhile, Husair's apprentice Sadajapa (Asrani) discovers his master death and brings him back to life. Upon resurrection, Husair steals the statuette and kidnaps Indumati. Ramu pledges to bring Indumati his wealth back and leaves in search of Husair. After crossing many hurdles, Ramu protects Indumati, recovers the statuette, and knocks out Husair. Finally, Ramu marries Indu and returns the statuette to the Goddess as it shouldn't be misused.
