Jai Verma (Sharad Kapoor) lives in Bombay. He is an honest, unemployed youth who cannot arrange for his mother's treatment.

Rai Bahadur (Ashish Vidyarthi), the uncrowned king of terrorism, orders Jai to be killed when he revolts. Jai flees to Sharjah and undergoes plastic surgery to begin a new life. He returns to India as Ajay Khanna (Jackie Shroff), meets his ex-lover Radha (Ayesha Jhulka), and marries her. They have a baby boy, Ravi Khanna (Sharad Kapoor). Ravi's parents want him to become a police officer to do away with traitors, but they themselves end up becoming a target instead.
