After that, he becomes a smuggler as Suraj, who later changes to a good man and in an accidental way comes to his estate, but couldn't reveal his identity as his past haunts him. While on the other hand, the Zamindar's second son Vijay (Jeetendra) and daughter Meena (Bindiya Goswami) lead a carefree life and are level-headed. And on the other hand, a smuggler assumes the identity of an honest man, Vinod (Vinod Mehra), who looks like him, in order to evade the police.
