Suraj Singh (Sanjay Dutt) lives happily with his father Sangram (Shashi Kapoor), his mother, younger sister Chutki, and his uncle Jaspal. Following his father's footsteps, Suraj becomes a policeman. Since Chutki has come of age, Sangram arranges a marriage for her with a suitable boy. The boy's father, who is a distant relative, requests Sangram to oust Jaspal from their house for it may raise questions from the guests as to how can an uncle live in a house where also lives a marriageable woman. Sangram firmly refuses, and calls off the marriage. When Suraj confronts Sangram about it, he reprimands him for being undisciplined. Suraj smells trouble when he suspects that Jaspal's stay at his house could somehow be related to the suspicious activities that his father has been carrying out lately. When he sets out to investigate, his girlfriend Vanisha (Amrita Singh) accuses him of killing a person named Anthony, and is subsequently jailed. Who is Anthony? Why did Vanisha frame Suraj? What's cooking between Sangram and his brother? Suraj has to find out if he wants to walk free.
