Orphaned and abused at a very young age, a young boy faces the harsh side of life as he struggles to make a living by slaving day and night. He gets empathy from a little girl, Kaamna, in whose house he works. Her dad, Ramnath (Dr Shreeram Lagoo), does not like him, and asks him to leave. He is adopted by a Muslim woman, Fatima (Nirupa Roy), who decides to name him Sikander. Shortly thereafter, Fatima dies, leaving young Sikander with the responsibility of looking after her daughter, Mehroo. Years later, Sikander (Amitabh Bachchan) has grown up and amassed a fortune by turning in smuggled goods to the police, and getting generous rewards. He has still not forgotten Kaamna (Rakhee) from his childhood. He finds out where she lives, and buys the house right opposite hers. He meets her, but she rejects him. He starts to drink and frequent a prostitute by the name of Zohrabai (Rekha). With the help of his friend, Advocate Vishal (Vinod Khanna), Sikander writes a love letter to Kaamna. Sikander finds out that she has received the letter, and has acknowledged his love. He is delighted. When he goes to meet her, he finds her in Vishal's arms, and again his world is shattered. He turns his attention to Zohrabai, only to find that she has killed herself. Sikander must now decide to end Vishal's life or kill himself in order to forget Kaamna. Zohrabai's fanatic lover, Dilawar (Amjad Khan) is also back from the prison and is hunting for Sikander...
