Sahil has been imprisoned for a murder that he did not commit. It is up to him to find the real culprit and vindicate himself. However, is he ready to bear the harshness of the truth?



Governer Sinha (Raj Babbar) is in charge of making a decision about implementing a national policy to allow foreign companies to operate in India. His son Sahil (Bobby Deol) is in love with his childhood friend Isha (Kajol) but is forced to marry Sheetal (Manisha Koirala), an industrialist’s daughter. He engages in a heated argument with his father and storms off. When he returns, he finds his father dead on the floor with a knife in his chest. Sahil pulls it out and just as Sinha is about to utter his murderer’s name, he dies. Sahil is arrested and put into jail for murder. He entrusts a piece of evidence, a locket found at the crime scene to Sheetal before he is led to prison. While in prison, Sahil is told about a secret exit through the sewage system of the prison. Sahil successfully escapes. He goes to his family doctor and confidant, Dr. Gandhi (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) but upon arrival he finds Gandhi dead. Sahil runs away but is sighted by a servant. Another falsely accused murder is attached to his name. Sahil corners Sheetal’s father Chaudhary (Dalip Tahil) and questions him about the murders. He convinces Sahil that he isn’t guilty. Next, Sahil goes to the Union minister who tells Sahil that this was a political assassination conspired by the CM. Inspector Udham (Om Puri) charged with capturing Sahil pieces clues together and goes to question Isha’s father, Governor Sinha’s PA, who confesses to both the murders. He says he killed Sinha because he refused to accept Isha as his daughter in law. Is there more to uncover about these murders or will Isha’s father take the fall?
